Federal Association of Motorcyclists

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Federal Association of Motorcyclists e. V. (BVDM) is a German association based in Mülheim an der Ruhr and was founded in 1958 by Werner Renkewitz and Ernst Leverkus .

The initial purpose of the association was to stand up for the rights of motorcyclists . In the meantime, the association has become increasingly active internationally in recent years, as more and more laws and regulations are being passed at European level. The BVDM represents more than 15,000 motorcyclists (as of February 2014).

In addition to political work, the association organizes safety training for motorcyclists, various tour-oriented events (Germany trip, tour trophy, tour destination trip) and the legendary elephant meeting . The association is a member of the German Road Safety Council , the Federation of European Motorcyclists' Associations (FEMA) and the road accident victim assistance Germany.
