09-07-14 MAG National Demo Ė Saturday 23 August 2014

How much is a life worth? 
Every day, a motorcyclist is killed or seriously injured on the road due to the actions of a driver who didnít pay attention, or even look out into the road. Nine times out of ten, the driver receives a pitiful sentence for careless driving after pleading guilty, or worse still, nothing more than a driving ban; meanwhile, a family loses someone who cannot be replaced. >

The Next Generation Raffle

Winning Ticket 04644



This is Steve Hunter, whose winning MAG raffle ticket was drawn by Touch FM's Bike-mad breakfast presenter Ollie Gallant on Wednesday. Steve was caught out when he got a phone call from Chair John Mitchell to tell him he was now the owner of a brand new AJP 125 as well as a bagful of other prizes. At first he thought April Fools day had been extended, but then remembered the couple of tickets he'd bought at last Summer's Farmyard Party which were still pinned to the wall at home.
Steve told MAG today that he is delighted and still surprised to be the winner. He has already passed his test and rides to work and rallies on his SV650, but thinks the bike looks like it'll be such fun he'll hang onto it. As for the prize of a CBT, his girlfriend passed hers a few weeks ago so he can't pass it on to her!
Steve's insurance will be free from Bikesure, as well as his MAG renewal, which was a personal donation to the prize pledged by MAG chairman John Mitchell as soon as the raffle was set up.Fat Skeleton have pledged a new helmet, and Hedgehog Motorcycles of Barnstaple a jacket, with lots of other prizes from -among others- Gutsibits of Huddersfield, WEALD, Bridge Motorcycles in Exeter, Peterborough MAG, Velocity Shack, and Continental Tyres to help keep the bike shiny side up.
There are lots of other prizes, details to follow..

Many thanks to all who took part in the raffle, which has raised substantial funds.
