Came across this on another forum

From Paddy Tyson, MAG:


In association with the EU Regulation into Type Approval and all the new
electrikery being proposed by those who believe they know better than
someone who actually rides, a survey has been launched which runs until
15th May.


There are about 40 questions, but I really urge you to persevere.

Interestingly many of the questions are phrased in such a way as to
establish most riders as habitual law breakers and I urge you to read
them carefully.

Others have an introductory scenario to set the scene where electronics
would obviously help- like the one where opening and closing the
throttle is done automatically to keep you a certain distance from the
car infront.

Everything is included here: compulsory ABS and traction control, curve
speed control, a system to stop lane splitting, heads up displays, and
it's interspersed with questions which blur motorcycling with irrational
road use.
How often do you undertake, or ride on a pavement? what about the wrong
way down a one way street and do you not bother with road laws because
they are complicated?

I urge you to complete this survey as this will make a difference to the
justification used for foisting more controls upon us.
Please spend the time and forward the link to anyone you know who rides.

Thanks and remember we only have until 15th May.

Kind regards
