MAG Helmet Demos

Club members have always seen the wisdom of wearing helmets but deplore the need to make helmets compulsory. It is quite possible that the fuss put up by Motorcycle Action Group members has delayed other repressive legislation. The large London protest rallies have always been popular.

We were inspired - not to say entertained - by (Pentonville) resident martyr, Fred Hill.

At one such rally I fitted a Union Flag onto the carrier of my Trident. The clutch gave a lot of problems on the slow ride round Trafalgar Square. When the rally ended I was glad to let the clutch out and take off across Westminster Bridge, followed by hordes of other riders. Half way over I realised I didn't want to go over the bridge so I did a u-turn - and so did everyone else! They thought I was leading some kind of run.
