Campaigning for riders' rights

The BMF is one of the largest rider groups in the world and has existed since the 1960s. We are a non-profit organisation run by elected volunteers, providing motorcyclists with a voice through specialist lobbyists and a network of volunteers across the UK.

The BMF successfully campaigns on issues that directly affect the liberty, safety and security of motorcyclists. The BMF educates and informs, and through its successful lobbying has defeated such ill-conceived ideas as leg-protectors and the 100bhp limit restriction.

The BMF is active in Europe through FEMA (Federation of European Motorcyclists Association) and the FIM (Federation of International Motorcyclists). We lobby MPs, MEP's, ministers, commissioners and committees to ensure that your views and concerns are heard.

A love of motorcycling

The BMF is managed by people like you; people who love motorcycling. No matter what they ride, our members want to be able to continue to ride motorcycles in the ways they enjoy. We all want to ensure our children and grandchildren will have the opportunity to enjoy riding in the future.

As a non-profit organisation, we rely on our members for funding and support. As a member, you will be part of the community of individuals and affiliated clubs which help make the BMF such a powerful voice in campaigning and safeguarding the rights of motorcyclists.

In addition, a range of member benefits can quickly repay your membership fee, plus you will receive Motorcycle Rider, the BMF's quarterly magazine packed with the latest road tests, interviews, riding advice and campaign news.
