    dear bikers all over Europe, bad news for everybody.

    It's currently being discussed a regional law in the Emilia-Romagna region (the long one over Tuscany) to forbid the use of any kind of off-road lane to any kind of motorized vehicle, including DOWNHILL BIKES - yeah, those little things w/o engines- for they are deemed dangerous and an hazard to the enviroment

    you'll be able to go offroad only with a permit and only if the local authority has any plan to do so. fees will reach up to 2000 Euros, and bikes will be confiscated to ensure the payment.

    There's little but hardcore mobilization here.

    this is the link to the plan (italian of course) http://demetra.regione.emilia-romagn...egge:2012;3351

    Our fear is that this kind of law is nothing but a moneybringer and it will be soon applied to the entire nation. Highways fees had been increased again this year and that is something.

    Attached you'll find both phone numbers and mail addresses for each of counsellor who's backing this law. i think some "external" pressure from all over the world would prove useful to our cause. FEEL FREE TO WRITE IN ENGLISH

    feel free to ask me whatever drills yer brain,

    I'M A NOOB, so if I have violated any rule plz tell me asap. plus I'd like to post this on other more visited sections of the forum, would you suggest me where?

    guido.

    this has been posted in the regional forum also.

    this is the list of all the counsellors backing this proposition. please be polite if you choose to write them.
