    Hi Art
    from the articles i've found it seems the RSA based it on the (alleged) fact that the mechanical state of repair of the bikes involved in accidents was not a significant contributing factor.
    I personally think its a money thing, (when isnt it?) i.e that the tiny number of bikes on the road in ireland would mean that training a nationwide network of testers would be prohibitive for the number of tests required.
    The NCT in Ireland is carried out by government employees at state run testing centres, not any monkey with an MOT licence and a  garage in any back street.
    I don't have cars anymore but I personally prefer the system here as it means that there is no financial incentive for testers to invent problems. I'm sure i'm not the only one who, when young and broke, i would give my mechanic mate a set fee and he would give me a brand spanking new MOT cert without my death trap jalopy ever darkening his garage forecourt.

    Those were the days, I remember blank MOT certificates being exchanged for green beer vouchers (1 notes) and one fella would exchange them for Luncheon Vouchers too.
