[size=150]About MAG Overview[/size]

The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG) is a volunteer led riders’ rights organisation that has been building in strength and diversity since it began in 1973.

MAG campaigns to protect and promote motorcycling and the interests and rights of all riders, from learner to advanced. We celebrate biking and the freedoms and independence it provides, through our support of parties and rallies, sport and competition, touring and travel.

MAG is the representative voice of riders in Local and National government and passionately defends all that is good about biking, mobilising riders through a local and regional branch structure.

MAG is not aligned to ANY political party or ideology, our independance makes it possible for politicians and officials to work with us knowing that we do not have a party-political agenda.

MAG membership is drawn from across the whole spectrum of motorcycling. Whatever you ride MAG has something for you.

MAG can, and does make a difference. We work directly with politicians and civil servants, but still employ other forms of direct action if necessary to ensure the rider’s voice is heard.

Since our humble beginnings nearly (well now over) 40 years ago, we have matured significantly and are respected for our responsible, objective, informed contributions which enrich the political debate.

Throughout this evolution MAG has remained faithful to its core principles of freedom of choice and self - determination and the mantra “Education not legislation”.

Good stuff, for those who might want some more information, have a look at the MAG website:

Well done Alex, I missed the link off…
I’ve been a member since 1980 and they have really grown into an effective organisation over the last 34 years.
I would encourage everyone to join individually.

They really do work hard and it is good news that we are back with them.

That’s great news!

I’ll be honest here, and confess I didn’t even know MAG were still going!

Yes Nick.
They have been going longer than we have, and they have way more members.

Do they still campaign against the helmet law :exclamation:

On the back burner Nick yes, the still campaign against the ‘helmet law’ not helmets, it’s always been about freedom of choice not compulsion either way, freedom to wear what you like, goes for clothing too.
Don’t worry, it’s not going to get repealed anytime soon.


Shame they can’t stop the continuos rise in the road fund license now £78 pound whilst some car users pay nothing.
Don’t want sound negative but god help us if they weren’t fighting our cause.

Likewise, not wanting to sound negative, but I didn’t know they were fighting ‘our’ cause? I don’t think I’ve been hiding under a stone for the last few years so maybe they’re not shouting loud enough! I did once fix Ian Much’s Harley at a bike show for him though, about 20 years ago!
