XS650: Fucked up Political Brainlessness   Leave a comment

This link was posted here on CustomXS650.com. All riders should take note. Looks like fucking dickhead european politicians are lining up motorcyclists. They’re not satisfied with ripping you off with the Euro. Stealing your future and that of your children and grandchildren by bailing out idiot economies and gangster banks isn’t enough for them either. That they are driving us into a war no reasonable citizen wants doesn’t bother them. After all their central banker overlords want this – it makes money – and the political bonus’s depend upon how far they can take it up the ass.

    • compulsory ABS,
    • the sealing of powertrains from the airbox, through the engine to the final drive (including the diameter and aspect ratio of the rear tyre),
    • restrictions on the aftermarket industry,
    • possible roadside checks by police or other government agencies to inspect emissions, detect owner ‘tuning’ and more.
    • France wants to ban bikes over 7 years old from urban areas for environmental reasons!

I could forgive them for targeting small gutless scooters and ring-a-ding 2 strokes.

I live in Germany. The powerhouse of europe. I am sick of my taxes being wasted by idiots who are only interested in lining their pockets and those of their masters. I love my ‘older than 7 year’ motorcycles and I want the Deutschmark back in my pocket.

I watched German tv last night. Paid for reporters telling me how much profit Germany has earned from the Euro. Sure, there have been profits. Have I seen any of it? Have you? What I see is my real income falling. My costs rising. Lower working conditions. Fear of losing your job. The ‘trickle down effect’ is in truth an upwards cascade. The top 1-2% earn massive bonus’s. Grand scale theft.

Sooner or later the German taxpayer will snap. Guillotines are easy to build. And, I imagine, very satisfying.

 

25th Sept -Action Now! EU Hands Off Biking!

 

 

A raft of issues emanating from Europe will have a profound effect on riders and the motorcycle industry generally. We must stand up and be heard. Some of these are driven by the EU Commission, like the new Type Approval and Market Surveillance Regulation that will see the introduction of compulsory ABS, the sealing of powertrains from the airbox, through the engine to the final drive (including the diameter and aspect ratio of the rear tyre), restrictions on the aftermarket industry, possible roadside checks by police or other government agencies to inspect emissions, detect owner ‘tuning’ and more.

There’s EU-funded development of electronics to control and govern speeds through warning systems or, ultimately, actual throttle control.

Ireland plans compulsory, full sleeve day-glo jackets for riders and pillions, France is debating compulsory reflective/day-glo clothing. Will UK insurance companies start saying that because we weren’t dressed in day-glo it’s our own fault that an inattentive driver drove into us? MAG says the onus should not be on the victim.

France also wants to ban bikes over 7 years old from urban areas for environmental reasons! Their congestion is already terrible and putting more riders into cars that pollute terribly when they are stationary, is bonkers.

Bikes are part of the urban transport solution, not problem.

Enough! There will be a vote by the MEP committee discussing the above Regulation in the autumn. We need them to listen. They’re meant to represent us. MAG and many others in the motorcycle community are negotiating hard with our own Government and our European representatives, but in the meantime….

Fancy joining 100,000+ French angry bikers from the UK? Here is how and when…

Excuse me now, I have such a knot in my stomach I gotta go puke.
