The EU are doing lots of stupid things - In the quite likely event you plan to do your test, the EU are trying to make it so that you need to do 3 tests to ride a big bike (600 plus)
And to make it impossible to modify your own bike beyond as it left the factory.
Also fitting complicated ABS and combined braking systems to all motorcycles over 125cc, and possibly below 125cc.
This includes off road machinery, which is stupid/dangerous.
With some of these its a matter of time until some one crashes - C-ABS applying the front while riding on gravel for instance.
Thats why a lot of bikers went to Brussels, and if it wasn't for the fact that my RS 125 is sitting in lincolnshire 100 miles away, and my CBR is sitting dead with twisted forks,and no petrol, I would be too, smoking Brussels to the sound and smell of glorious two strokes - whom they've spent the last 10 years killing off !!
Oh the Irony...
