DSA releases list of ‘A2’ bikes

The DSA has released a list of machines officially recognised as suitable for the new ‘A2’ motorcycle test. From January 19, all new riders under 24 will have to spend time restricted to 47bhp with an A2 motorcycle licence before graduating to unrestricted machines. The new rules are explained in a DSA video below. The DSA stressed that its list of A2-compatible bikes...

@Robell

As an occasional forum lurker I'm happy to talk to folk who ride bikes and to provide the odd bit of information now and again.

@biketester

so your saying that the inclusion of the Brough was the DSA's attempt at humour?

Do you think its wise for a goverment department to try and make jokes?

what next the ministry of Defense joking about starting a war perhaps?

department of health closing hospitals then saying it was a joke?

Tory goverment saying they are in a coalition with the liberals? oh yeah that is a joke:shock::shock:

So, are you able to tell us to what degree the test changes are expected to improve road safety ?

I have to assume the legislators had the answers to questions like that, before approving the new regulations.

Oh, it's not a joke

Brough Superior is a marque, not a model.  Even when they think they're being oh-so-clever, the DSA are just making fools of themselves, and pissing in the faces of the poor bastards who have to put up with this crap.

None of this has sneaked up on them. They've had six years to get this done and dusted, were 18 months late publishing our implementation, and are still dicking around as the deadline approaches, trying to find new ways to screw over candidates, for example with the inexplicable "recognised restriction specialist" demand.  Literally inexplicable, they've stonewalled a FOI about it, essentially answering "Because your face."

If they were in the private sector, they'd have been sacked for gross negligence long ago.

Suitable?

I recommended the following models should comprise the list:

  • Ducati Desmosedici GP12,
  • Honda RC213V,
  • Yamaha YZR-M1.

Makes as much sense as tiered licensing for motorcyclists, but not cagers.

Safety in Numbers

Motorcycles are like push-bikes; the fewer on the roads, the less the cagers expect them, and the higher the accident rates involving cagers per mile (or hour) ridden.
