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.

With final responsibilities in the Government’s reshuffle still to be announced*, the British Motorcyclists Federation have today expressed their concerns over the future of the Ministerial Review into motorcycle driving licence testing.
New EU Proposals for Road Worthiness Tests to replace MOTs: In response to many concerns over the proposed new EU Road Worthiness Tests, the BMF have produced a briefing document, ‘The EU, MOTs, RWTs and You’ summarising the proposal’s main effects.
The second show in the BMF’s season sees the party heading North to the Borders Union Showground at Kelso. This is a great event for those who enjoy camping (and for those who prefer the day visit!) because of the fantastic setting.
Motorcyclists concerned over the EU Type Approval regulations currently being debated can now get clarification on what it means for them thanks to a new briefing document, ‘Type Approval and You’ produced by the British Motorcyclists Federation.
