They should run those in Australia, the only place I see biker awareness is in the loot at the pub on the door :/ And I'm pretty sure that's only there because a lot of bikers hang out at that particular pub :(

And indeed, cars ...



I daresay you’re all too young to remember when these were operational police vehicles, I know I am.

Undertaking a Police truck in Malaysia the other day... no worries, they waved. Do that in Oz, they'd nail you.

Not too clear, motorcycle officer in QLD pulled me over for an RBT - really nice guy. Even pointed out that my rego sticker had been stolen - again!

It's always helpful when posters include their location. I can tell this photo was taken in an English speaking country, probably England, but no idea otherwise.

Unfortunately Bryn is off to foreign parts for a few days so may not be able to answer very quickly - I met him at the Ace Cafe earlier today whilst he was on route to a ferry.
I am not sure where that photo was taken, however it is England, and probably somewhere in the East Midlands, Leicester area

Any ideas as to how the shotgun would be secured?

Looks like it's got a mount with a Velcro strap around it to me.

Motorcycles and Pay Stations

Needs no explanation........




If a parking space is controlled by a pay station, motorcyclists must purchase a receipt at a pay station and properly display it on the headlamp. While more than one motorcycle may park in the space, each vehicle must display a valid receipt to avoid a citation. [snipped]

Although it is possible for a person other than the driver of a motorcycle to remove a pay station receipt that is properly displayed on the motorcycle's front headlamp, it is an unlikely occurrence. Other cities using pay station kiosks have not experienced many incidents of this happening because the amount of time on the receipt may not be exactly what a potential "receipt thief" needs, or because the value of the maximum amount of a receipt is only $3.00 (now $8) (which is a very small amount to risk arrest or public embarrassment for), or because there are usually other people in the area who may notice the theft and either say something or report it (Oh yeah, sure they will). If you are worried about this, SDOT suggests paying with a debit/credit card, so you will have proof of your transaction (when you fight your ticket) , and write "motorcycle" and/or your license plate number on the parking receipt.

Most locks are either key or electromagnetic with an interface to the bike's electrical system. Out here, several departments have added a rubber safety strap as the magnetic mounts have been known to unlatch when going over rough pavement which results in the shotgun departing the mount.
