Hosted by members of the European parliament Wim van de Camp and Inés Ayala Sender the 2015 FIM Dinner Debate in the European parliament saw the launch of a new report by the International Transport Forum (ITF) on motorcycle safety.
ITF’s Véronique Feypell de La Beaumelle outlined the process that led to this work starting at a motorcycling conference held in Norway back in 2008. The report is very positive towards motorcycling.
Jesper Christensen, FIM Director and delegate to FEMA, explained to guests that the ITF report has formed the basis of new discussions between FIM Europe and the Federation of European Motorcyclists Associations (FEMA). This has led to a new partnership between the two organisations.
