Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Thou­sands of MCN read­ers backed the cam­paign to scrap plans for off-road bikes to have a num­ber­plate. At one point the min­is­ter propos­ing the bill, MP Gra­ham Stringer (left), said Mo­togp bikes would have to have num­ber­plates too! The move was a wellinten­tioned bid to stop stolen bikes be­ing used as ‘field’ bikes. The bill was with­drawn af­ter MCN urged read­ers to write to their MP.
