This was a consultation done in 2008 with Training Schools, Police, the OSMV, BCCOM and a host of others. Please read page 6 & 7 and discuss. To say that I am unimpressed with the new regulations that come into law tomorrow would be an understatement. Please note the reccomendations regarding better data collection, more information to class 5 drivers, being restricted for a period of time to the bike you took your test on, re-evaluation of training schools criteria.
What I am trying to get across here is that the whole seating/footpeg thing was never an issue.
