FEMA - Brief History      

femamepride07In June 1988, national road riding motorcyclists' rights organisations from France, Germany, UK, Austria, Greece, Italy and Luxembourg gathered in Strasbourg to protest against unfair European motorcycle legislation.

Out of this meeting came the decision to form a European organisation to defend and promote the interests of riders, and the Federation of European Motorcyclists (FEM) was born.

On 1st January 1998, FEM and EMA (the European Motorcyclists Association) merged to form the Federation of European Motorcyclists’ Associations (FEMA).

FEMA is the only European riders’ rights organisation with a permanent presence in Brussels, concentrating its efforts on motorcycle and rider related matters.

Affiliated to FEMA today are 24 national riders' rights organisations from 19 countries across Europe.

The Brussels-based Secretariat, headed by its General Secretary, co-ordinates policies and undertakes lobbying in line with the decisions of the FEMA Executive Committee, which meets three times a year and on which representatives from all affiliates in all European countries participate.

MAG UK was instrumental in setting up FEM, which went on to become the FEMA, of which MAG is an active member organisation.

A portion of your MAG membership goes towards funding FEMA, giving riders a voice in Europe and in Global Issues.
