    Euro 3 is one of the reasons why the Rex and many others were dropped because they wouldn't comply.

    I have never seen or heard of an LEZ affecting motorcycles. Even the wankers in London dont have motorcycles barred on the website... My Rex is fine

    It's crazy and short sighted to apply this to motorbikes as we don't sit in traffic pumping out fumes.

    Easy to get through the traffic and actually ease congestion instead of cause it.

    Just checked my 99 and recieved the following:

    No charge due for this vehicle

    This vehicle either meets the required emission standards, is exempt from the scheme or is subject to a 100% discount.

    Typical example of legislation being brought in without being thought through properly. Come 2040 when everything has to be electric the A&E departments are going to be full up with folk with broken bones caused by tripping over one of the millions of extension cables lying around!!!!

    I reckon that will be put back so many times it will be 2070 by the time it's up and running, if at all. I mean, how many more power stations will need to be built! Still, wont need to worry about it me-sen

    Actually not that many, they just need to get the infrastructure started now to be in with a realistic chance. There's talk of everyones cars actually being used as a big national grid battery. The thinking is everyone charges their cars overnight when demand is lowest, then in the morning when everyone fires up their kettles, you only need to draw a tiny percentage of power back from everyones car to help power the sudden surge. With so many cars plugged in they wouldn't even notice a drop in charge.

    In reality it will be a complete balls up though, but like you say, i'll be too old to care at that point.

    Exactly complete bollocks. In London the largest problem is TFL's own buses and the black cabs! Yet they're exempt of course much better to lay their upcoming emissions charges on older bikes which contribute under 3% of the total noxious emissions picture...
