Much of what MAG Ireland does goes on behind the scenes. It’s a low key war of attrition with the various local, national, and international bodies who think that they who do not ride motorcycles somehow know what’s best for those of us who do.
“They” are the various government departments, quangos, committees, authorities, and councils who knowing better, know nothing. We in MAG Ireland do whatever we can to engage with them on your behalf – persuading, cajoling, arguing our corner, myth busting, defusing prejudice and generally doing whatever it takes, wherever it takes us, to make sure that you continue to have the freedom to ride your bike your way.
We can’t possibly win every battle. What we can do, and have done, (and will continue to do wherever possible) is to curb the worst excesses of the idiotocracy in whose ideal world we shall not exist.
The fight is a little one sided. In the one corner, you have MAG Ireland – a handful of volunteers doing what they can when they can in their own spare time (and frequently at their own expense) on behalf of the MAG membership and the wider motorcycling community. In the other, a vast international army of bureaucrats at every level from local busybodies to internationally recognised personalities whose full-time paid day job is to dream up ever more stringent restrictions to impose upon us “for our own good”.
You can help. €25 will buy a printer cartridge. €10 will buy 2 reams of paper. €5 will buy 9 postage stamps. €2 will help to keep the lights on.
