The Directors of the Federation of European Motorcyclists’ Associations (FEMA) have appointed Dolf Willigers (pictured) as the new General Secretary. Dolf will take over this position from Aline Delhaye (who has been in the role since 2006) in February 2015.

Dolf (58), a Dutch national, has been a rider for many years and became involved in the Motorrijders Actie Groep (MAG) in the Netherlands in 2001. He held several positions within MAG NL and, in 2012, campaigned against periodical technical inspection for motorcycles. He became a FEMA delegate in 2013.

Commenting on his appointment Dolf said: “I’m very glad to be able to represent the riders at EU level and to defend their rights as General Secretary of FEMA. The use of motorcycles in daily traffic should be promoted as a smart and fast alternative to other kinds of travelling and I am looking forward to doing this.”
