Missing footrest is now a major fail, it's simple enough to remedy with a seat cowl covering the pillion seat. I think it's a fair enough fail as it's not something that a tester can put down as an advisory if it's actually missing.

If it is fitted, it has to work. If you have a pillion seat, you should have footpegs for the pillion.
Seems logical to me. :D

At the bottom of all this MOT/pillion footrest moaning.......if the tester is found to not be carrying out tests correctly, they can lose their testers certification.....maybe their job ultimately.


Anyway, I only posted a couple of pics to try and help out another ABRer..... :roll:

Gosh, my local Honda dealership didn't seem to mind my lack of footrests. That's lucky as I have no idea where they are since the house move...
And now, Harry, let us step out into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.
