Interesting. I'm not sure that they mean the whole mudguard it'd just be the rear fender that a lot of riders remove and fit fender eliminators.

must be something to do with the new "bobber" craze.

It's a win!

Less regulation means exactly that.

The Ducati Diavel and similar bikes have a bobtail from factory, the old 45deg rule just doesn't work anymore. Yep, win win!

Now waiting for the safety nannies at the state level to rewrite or introduce new requirements to over ride the federal decision.....

Trouble is

These silly buggers will insist that pre "what ever year they select" will still have to conform with old regulations even though they are a state impost.

Sometimes that extra bit of plastic stops a lot of shit getting all over your bike and your back. Guess it will be an expensive option now if you still want it

Motorcycle deregulation to save millions

Media Release
JB096/2014
15 September 2014

Joint release with:
Hon. Josh Frydenberg MP
Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister;
Federal Member for Kooyong


The Australian Government is getting on with abolishing unnecessary red and green tape by today approving the removal of the requirement to modify rear mudguards on new motorcycles to meet unique Australian rules.
This change will involve deleting the mudguard extension specification from the national vehicle standards, known as the Australian Design Rules (ADRs).
After careful review, the Australian Government and state and territory governments have agreed to remove this requirement as it's outdated and has no bearing on vehicle safety.
Abolishing this unnecessary provision will achieve significant efficiencies, with nearly 70,000 new motorcycles no longer required to be retro-fitted with rear mudguard extensions every year.
This change is expected to deliver $14.4 million in industry compliance and manufacturing savings every year, which should lead to lower prices for new motorcycle owners.
Consumers in Australia will finally have access to motorcycles as originally designed by the manufacturers, bringing Australia into line with other major markets including the European Union and Japan.
This initiative is in line with the Australian Government's response to the Productivity Commission's Report on Australia's Automotive Manufacturing Industry to accelerate harmonising ADRs with United Nations Vehicle Regulations.
Harmonisation ensures we strike the balance between appropriate safety standards, in line with international best practice, and consumer access to vehicles at the lowest possible cost.
An important part of the harmonisation process will involve unique Australian content in the ADRs being removed where it cannot be justified.
We expect to announce further reforms in coming months with savings to the vehicle industry and consumers.

And in response to that blurb from a federal government department;

http://netrider.net.au/threads/remov.../#post-2762040

"Oh dear... Here we go again... Yet another disharmonisation between ADR's and state VSR's which will be completely lost on the police, resulting in yet another blitz, booking perfectly legal bikes... We've seen it all before..."

Think helmet legislation. The states will fuck this up, just like helmet law.

Where state and federal laws disagree, federal laws take precedence.

See... there's the problem right there! the disparity comes from the various states, and the fact that some have daylight saving... and some dont.
It's all explained quite clearly in the ADR diagram below;



As you can see quite plainly, while it's quite alright to use a front mudguard that conforms with the ADR's between the hours of 12 noon to 3 in the afternoon.
Whereas a motorcycles rear guard is covered by a generic 90 degree clause; which in the traditional sundial terms represents a period between 10:30 am to 13:30 pm.
This 90 minute anomaly (one minute for every degree of latitude) is protracted by the situation where some states have daylight saving time...
or the fact where one might have a WA registered motorcycle being operated on the east coast and thereby a three hour time/space continium delay would be in effect.

In their wisdom, the dept. of bureacracy has put forward a parlaimentary proposal to consider the possibility of a motion to wave said ADR's as part of a legislative referendum to determine
if it was not in fact a bad idea in the first place.
