An­swered by Chris Dabbs, MCN In the­ory, yes – see the French Govern­ment site (http://bit.ly/2hlr­jco) which states there is now an ‘obli­ga­tion to wear gloves for the driv­ers and pas­sen­gers of mo­tor­cy­cles.’ But I think it is mainly aimed at moped and scooter-rid­ing com­muters rather than rid­ers of big bikes.
