Who are NABD?

Whilst J Byrne Limited does not act for NABD, our Director, John Byrne, has been the NABD Treasurer since 1999.

The National Association for Bikers with a Disability is a registered charity (Charity number 1040907)

The NABD was set up in April 1991 by six bikers from Stockport and Manchester who would not accept the idea that disabled people could not ride motorcycles, scooters, or trikes.

The membership of the NABD has now grown to a staggering 5,000+ individual members with the support of over 200 affiliated clubs and businesses. Over the past 20 years the NABD has directly helped over seven thousand disabled people to enjoy the freedom and independence of motorcycling.

The NABD has been instrumental in similar groups setting up in Norway, Sweden, France and Japan.

Unlike many registered charities the NABD does not spend donated money on wages and plush office accommodation. (We now have one paid employee, an office administrator, this post was initially financed by a grant from the national lottery 'community fund' now it is wholly financed from the proceeds of our national rally). All of the other people working for the NABD are volunteers.

Also unlike most charities, all donations from individuals, clubs or companies are used 100% for the benefit of, and services for, disabled riders (the administration costs of the association are met from other sources).

The NABD is regularly consulted on issues relating to disabled motorcycling by the DVLA, DfT, VOSA, DSA, and MAVIS.

J Byrne Limited are proud to be an affiliated supporter of the NABD
