Just reposting something seen on a non-motorcycle forum. I haven't verified it. Dave "If you are one of the thousands that ride on the continent make sure your gloves are up to spec. New rules in France state you must have CE approved gloves on. They must have a label stating they they reach EN 13594 regs. On the spot fine if either the rider or pillion found with incorrect gloves on. Fines are set to 68 € per person, reducing to 45€ if paid within 15 days. And guess what... Already getting reports of eager gendarmes catching 'those stoopid rosbif' on the A16 heading south after getting off the boat".
