New m.o.t laws etc

Post by Mikekitts81 » Tue Apr 03, 2018 6:51 pm

So these new laws having been hovering around and have now come into place so what does it all mean for motorcycles what's going to happen to all the chop jobs and the modified bikes etc is it the end of the road for them or is it all gonna be expemt from motorcycles ... or is it going to come down to the garage you take it to etc ... I been a few and my last garage didn't even look at the bike proper we just had a chat about bikes were he went riding etc and 20 mins later he said well thats been long enough now ... he checked the brakes and few other importants but mostly we just nattered like 2 old women ...

Cars I thought............?
We buy things we don't need



With money we don't have



To impress people we don't even like

Just had my Explorer MOT’d this morning. Both mine and a guy with a Honda before me had to have our headlamps re positioned downwards for some reason.

This could be dangerous as it limits how far ahead you can see.
What with dangerous pot holes on the road etc.
We should make some measurements in case this is yet another mistake.

Will it not work the same with faults were you can't take it home if it as certain faults ... and what is classed as a dangerous fault . Your brakes don't pass and there just under the right numbers / measurements then what .... Sorry you can't ride home your brakes are classed as a dangerous fault . That's the only bit of the m.o.t that always worrys me I change fluids and pads discs and I still stand there wondering if it will pass ...
