Googling motorcycle friendly is an interesting exercise. At the top of most searches is a thought provoking, yet somewhat cynical, article from www.bikeme.tv which challenges the concept.
The motorcycle friendly program is aimed at addressing some of the issues raised including avoiding the “self-declaration” process but it is not for us to justify its existence here – hopefully the program speaks for itself!
It’s a no brainer that we should “treat motorcyclists the same way as you should be treating everyone” but it is nice to know that some towns and businesses understand the specific needs of motorcyclists.
There is a comment on the article that is pertinent – “Motorcycle Friendly town etc why not”. We agree, why not. It can only help towns, businesses and motorcyclists.
