You DON'T

need Breathalyser or Hi-vis yet they've been put on hold & you don't need a Triangle on a bike.


Only need 3 Bulbs, Headlight stop-n-tail & winker.

Small first aid kit that fits in your pocket will do :wink:

hi viz

shelved, but think you need breathalysers n triangle. if you don' t get stopped you won' t need anything! Be careful near the channel ports for police speed traps, and for grey roadside boxes, they' 're speed cameras.

Ok

You now need a breathalyser it was put on hold until November 2012, 


Bikes DO NOT need to cary a triangle this rule dose not apply to bikes.

And don't forget to take all your Doc's including your V5
