Reprieve for high-powered bikes in anti-tampering plans

Anti-tampering measures on new bikes will be limited to machines up to 47bhp, MEPs have agreed.  New motorcycles are to get so-called on-board diagnostic systems capable of registering modifications as faults to be rectified by a mechanic. The aim is to make it impossible to modify motorcycles which comply with power restrictions for new riders from next year. The measures will apply...

You want an end to all this?.......

..............stop voting Lib/Lab/Con. You're voting for you own destruction and the mainstream politicians are laughing their heads off at how stupid you are. When are you going to open your eye and see what's happening in the UK?

Better Idea

Better idea would be to limit cages (aka automobiles) to 47HP for drivers without advanced training.

@ SatNavSteve – Our company vehicles (here in the US) have just been fitted with combined GPS and accelerometer “tattle-tale” devices. Maybe in the future you will get a fine in the mail if you exceed 0.5G acceleration, cornering, or braking on your motorcycle? As well as automated speeding and parking tickets too.

at lest your government gets to decide what laws are brought about,

you don't have to accept some badly thought out idea, dreamt up by

an ill informed bastardized, law making, quango in another country, made up of mostly

 uselss, over paid, forgeign members.

Didn't we fight a couple of wars just to prevent such an outcome?.

The problem here in the U.K. we usually obay the law & it"s enforced , but in mainland Europe if the law is disliked it"s just ignored  & not  acted upon ! . Spain & Italy  seem the worst  countries for this , but  we could learn something from our  European friends ,instead of our normal sheep stance . I can see this effecting the main bike makers sales in a couple of years , and many  bikers will not care as it will not effect them on their superbikes ,but in the long run it will be another nail in the ordinary riders coffin .

Human right

Its my "human right" to modify my bike in anyway, I bought it, I ride it and if I want to stick a 1980s Micron on the side I will - Wake up England you have lost freedom which was won at great cost!

There are more important issues than a power commander on a bike - NHS, Economy anyone!

Standard fit tyres next!

This is

the EU making laws without understanding either the existing laws in multiple countries or understanding the engineering around it. They are also too retarded or too arrogant to work out the effects their new laws will have on different countries.


Look, this is just restriction of motorcycle powers and fiddling with licences. These people don't even understand how the economy works, never mind anything else. These people don't understand that in a fractional reserve banking system as in the one we employ, the government is the lender of last resort to the banks. Now, the IMF credit swaps printed (counterfeit) money with the european central bank which then lends it to banks in the bailout countries which lends it to governments. They don't understand how fait currencies work even though they've created one out of the previously fundamentally semi-solid Euro and they don't seem to get that they've a)done it and b)how to deal with it. The arrogance and / or ignorance of not knowing they've done it means they can't get to fixing it.

You think gold keeps going up? No, it's your currency going down but they don't understand it or don't want you to know it. THAT's the effect of what these school children and liers in government are doing with the world economy which should be the basis underpinning knowledge needed to run things, never mind understanding motorcycling.

EU.

Yep, that's how they work, Phil.  Whether MEPs are well-meaning but ignorant do-gooders or arrogant megalomaniacs who couldn't make it in the home elections (half and half, at a guess) the end result is the same. They're constantly looking for something, anything, that can be legislated but they don't think it through because that's too difficult.

Instead they issue broad edicts and expect the various States to work out the details to make it work. That's how the anti-tampering rules were going to go. Fishing quotas are another example. Lobbyists told them the fish stocks needed to be conserved so the EU came up with an unworkable, wasteful system.
