MAG welcomes new partnership with the ACU

At a recent APMG (Associate Parliamentary Motorcycle Group) meeting in Westminster, MAG’s Nich Brown gave a sterling speech introducing the Riders Are Voters campaign to the assembled MPs, Peers and motorcycle industry bosses.

The APMG contains those members of the House who ride, or who have any interest in motorcycling or the industry. It also contains MAG representatives after we were invited to join last year.

The meeting in question was in January and was sponsored by the ACU, the governing body of motorcycle sport in Britain, who were kind enough to let MAG address the gathering.

Nich’s speech was very well received, indeed it’s tempting to say that he got a standing ovation, but that’s only because there weren’t any seats. It was so well received in fact, that afterwards, MAG and the ACU began talks about the possibility of working more closely in the future.

MAG is delighted to say, that following further talks, the ACU has joined the Riders Are Voters campaign as an equal partner! This is the first time that the sport governing body and riders’ rights have worked together and we hope it is the start of a long and fruitful relationship. It now means that rider’s groups, the motorcycle Industry and the competition world, are acting as a single united voice to ensure the long and happy future of motorcycling.
