Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA)
#1
What do you make of this excerpt from a recent MAG update:

The Motorcycle Industry Association (MCIA) is rebranding and their new head wants to concentrate on “L category vehicles” rather than motorcycles. These are all the strange things like, leaning three wheelers, micro cars, 2/3/4 wheelers up to a given weight. The director of the MCIA has gone on record to say that he’d rather not be associated with motorcycles!

Ha! They have always been a strange bunch of people.

Perhaps he’s after collecting his pension early. It smacks of their attempts in the 80’s and 90’s on how to encourage new people to biking. They asked bikers what to do, the reply was, drop the 125 limit, ditch the two part test and give them more support...

In response, they did the opposite.

I’m seeing it as they have seen the big bike market take off....so ditch it.

To me, it looks like they want to boost the EU promotion of safety related products, ironically built in the EU.

I just thought it absurd that the body looking after the motorcycle industry in the UK want to distance themselves from motorcycling. Obviously just me, carry on.
