Anti-tampering legislation is putting many motorcyclists out because they cannot see the need for it.

In January 2013, among other regulations, EU rulings will mean that bikers can no longer modify their motorcycles.

Jeff Stone, media and public relations manager at the British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF), explained that what this means is that the owner should not be able to alter anything from where the air comes into the engine to where the power exits at the back wheel.

"They're saying once the manufacturer's made it, you can't change anything. And of course motorcyclists being mechanically-minded, like to alter their own bikes and make them individual," Mr Stone explained.

However, the main issue many motorcyclists have with the legislation is that, while the EU claim it will save lives, there is little evidence to prove this.

Combined with compulsory anti-lock braking systems and type approval changes, bikers are discontent with the rulings targeting the industry.
