MAG takes stock of 2023

The Motorcycle Action Group (MAG), the UK’s leading voice for riders’ rights, reflects on the past year and looks forward to another year of positive outcomes for motorcyclists.

As 2023 draws to a close, MAG can report significant progress throughout the year, and will shortly be gearing up for another year of action and engagement.

Summing up the past year, MAG’s Chair, Neil Liversidge, said:

“As it does every year, MAG has campaigned up and down the country on behalf of its members and the wider motorcycling community.  Wherever it sees discrimination against riders, it is challenged.  Where bikers are ignored – for example by omission from Transport Plans – MAG engages with the decision-makers to ensure that there is inclusion.
Last year we launched ‘Operation Earthquake’, and I am happy to report that this initiative has been steadily gathering momentum with significant political engagement.
MAG continues to promote motorcycling as part of the solution when it comes to reducing our impact on the planet.  It is a simple and immediate contribution that should – but often isn’t – sufficiently encouraged.
Our Political Unit has worked hard on these and many other campaigns, and I am immensely grateful for their hard work, as I am for the tireless efforts of our volunteers, without whom we could not succeed.
MAG has also celebrated its 50th Anniversary of championing riders’ rights, which is a testament to the enthusiasm and tenacity of its members and supporters.”

After a short break over the festive season, MAG will be campaigning with renewed vigour to ensure that motorcycling and motorcyclists continue to be taken seriously in respect to their needs.

MAG’s Central Office will close at noon on Friday 22nd December 2023 and reopen on Tuesday 2nd January 2024.

MAG invites riders, dealers, mechanics and manufacturers to join MAG and help create a united voice for the common good of the riding community.
