FEMA and FIM synchronise positions

FEMA and FIN Europe decided to set a next step in their cooperation after reacting to the OECD-ITF report "Improving Safety for Motorcycle, Scooter and Moped Riders".

After disseminating a joint position paper on the OECD-ITF report "Improving Safety for Motorcycle, Scooter and Moped Riders" and sharing offices in Brussels, FEMA and FM Europe have made a next step in their cooperation by writing joint position papers on 8 important subjects for road riding motorcyclists. These subjects vary from "Training ans testing" to "Repair and maintenance information". With this the motorcyclists’ federations in Europe share views and speak with one voice on all important issues. we think that by doing this we can ever better represent motorcyclists and their interests than we already did.
