Following the widely reported and devastating news regarding the recent huge earthquake in Türkiye and Syria, the FIM has responded to an urgent appeal by the Turkiye Motorcycling Federation (TMF) by sharing the request for vital equipment with its national federations and the wider motorcycling community.
To summarise the situation:
The roads in the earthquake affected area were severely destroyed, meaning that medicine and rescue teams can only reach these regions by using off-road motorcycles and quads.

The 2022 FIM Commission Conference was a success! From 11 to 13 February, more than 300 FIM Family Members from all around the world, got together to celebrate the passion for motorcycle. Since the arrival at the Grand Hôtel de Divonne in Divonne-les-Bains (France) to the visit to the FIM headquarters in Mies (Switzerland), we had the opportunity to meet with the Board of Directors Members, Commissions Directors and Members as well as FIM World Championships promoters and Race Directors.
The tradition in FIM is, that all commissions and their members meet in the first months of the year to prepare the season in sport and riding.
This year the 2022 meetings was held in the french City Divonne les Bains close to Geneva and among the meetings was of course also meeting of the touring commission, that now feel the air of spring in more ways.
After the pandemic, the ”hunger” for coming out riding motorcycle to events is growing by the motorcyclists, and the commission has prepared for more than 20 FIM approved events througout the year.
2021 was the year to get back on the road. We had 22 events run with great experiences, meeting new cultures and amazing landscapes, traveling around Belgium, Denmark, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey. This year, FIM Touring held the 1st event in Turkey, the 1st Adventure Touring Event in Egypt and have successfully achieved another Touring World Challenge, awarding another WORLD WINNER in both categories of Individual and Moto Clubs. We thank all the team and, most important, the riders for making everything possible!
