READER POWER STOPS PLATE CHANGE
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 The bill was withdrawn after MCN urged readers to write to their MP.
