The BMF (British Motorcyclists Federation) represents over 92,000 members and is Europe's largest, most effective, rider organisation.

Formed in 1960 it represents the views of the ordinary road-going motorcyclist. A member of the Government's Advisory Group on Motorcycling, it is consulted widely by Government departments and local authorities. A powerful lobby group in its own right it also ensures a voice in Europe though membership of the Federation of European Motorcyclists' Associations (FEMA).

The BMF also organizes a range of shows and events throughout the year, including the two-day BMF Show, the biggest of its type in Europe. Member benefits include legal advice; insurance schemes; RAC membership scheme, a BMF credit card, discount deals and a bi-monthly magazine, Motorcycle Rider.
