The German ABE ( Allgemeiner Betriebs Erlaubnis ) rules are known to be more strict and rigorously enforced than any other EU or non-EU countries.

This dates back to several seventies vintage high speed autobahn accidents with aftermarket fairings on early Gold Wings and other brands at elevated speeds.

As we know - most other countries don't have free speed autobahns - hence also a less restrictive aftermarket equipment approval regime than Germany.
