Affiliated Clubs & Members
BMF membership is broken into two areas: individual members and club members.
Groups and Clubs
Clubs are then broken into two areas: local clubs and then national (and one make) clubs. Using the tabs to the left, you can search for local or national and one make clubs.
Affiliated clubs benefit from a special public liability insurance package, and their members enjoy many of the advantages offered to individual BMF members.
Affiliated Club Benefits:
• Affiliated Club Civil Liability Protection: BMF affiliation to the Sport and Recreation Alliance means our Affiliated Clubs automatically participate in their unique Civil Liability protection scheme. Details of which may be found in our information sheet “Civil Liability Protection“. Since 2010 we also have included Employers Liability Cover and further details of this can be found in the same information sheet.
Equipment and spares cover is also available at excellent rates. Details of this can be obtained from Perkins Slade on telephone number 0121 698 8160.
• National and One-Make Forum: National and One Make (NOM) Clubs can send representatives to these meetings, that take place at regular intervals through out the year, and can, through this forum raise concerns which they have at both national and local levels and obtain assistance from other Clubs / BMF in dealing with them.
• Regional Meetings: Local Clubs send representatives to these meetings and can, through these forums raise concerns which they have and obtain assistance from other Clubs / BMF in dealing with them.
• Club Ground Space at BMF Shows: Exhibitor space is available to all affiliated clubs at our events. Here clubs can encourage new members and enjoy the fun and camaraderie of a national event. This includes a number of exhibitor passes, allowing club members to attend and man their stand. Details can be found on the events pages of the BMF web site www.bmf.co.uk
• Motorcycle Rider: Clubs, as part of their affiliation receive, dependent on size, a set number of subscriptions to the BMF magazine Motorcycle Rider. These are mailed to members nominated by the Club.
Regular Information and Press Releases: BMF Press Releases are available on email.
Many people are affiliated BMF members through their club, but only individual members receive Motorcycle Rider magazine. Why not become a full member, receive the quarterly magazine and, in so doing, help support riders' rights by funding the British Motorcyclists Federation.
As a member you will be part of an organisation with over 80,000 members made up of individual members and affiliated clubs making the BMF a powerful voice in campaigning to safeguard the rights of motorcyclists. In addition a range of member benefits can quickly repay your membership fee - benefits such as preferred insurance rates, hotel and ferry discounts, touring advice and even our own Visa credit card to help you pay for it!
Member's receive the BMF's bi-monthly magazine 'Motorcycle Rider' with the latest road tests, interesting articles and campaign news.
Individual Member Benefits
In a new partnership deal with Bikesure, a new insurance product has been created which has the interests of BMF members at heart in giving specially negotiated discounts whilst being flexible enough to cover all types of bikes and most circumstances. The new product is ‘BMF Insurance’ and will be managed fully by the Bikesure staff at their Adrian Flux offices. The deal includes BMF membership and up to 25% discount. Benefits on most Bikesure policies include:
- Multibike discounts
- Optional breakdown cover
- Optional personal injury cover
- Free £100,000 legal cover
- Optional helmet and leathers cover up to £1,000
- Limited mileage discounts
- Discounts for experienced riders and security precautions
As well as paying the BMF a generous commission for each new policy taken out and each policy renewed, Bikesure will donate £1,000 to a charity of the Federation’s choice once 100 members have taken out new policies via the dedicated phone number into the broker’s UK-based call centre.
