As an ex Rider Safe instructor the road safety thing is close to my heart and this can affect all of us in the future. That’s one of the reasons I started adventure riding, too many clowns on the road! Better to get off it!?!

Keep in mind this has come about through statistics and information gathered over a few years, and though you may not agree with all of it, I assure you the information / ideas have not been put forward lightly.

The info and survey can be found here:

Cheers bwvtom
Well just watched the Govt funded Video, and I feel completely safer, now wheres my cotton wool Im going outside


I also Don't see how they justify Increasing the licence fees for a motorcycle licence, Has some accountant worked out if a rider has less money in their pocket they will have less chance of having an accident ? . this survey is an attack on Motorcycle riders everywhere, motorcycle safety and awareness should be taught when sitting for a car drivers licence , or perhaps make it compulsory to ride a bike for year before having a car licence ..

It's simple (for accountants).
1. Higher license cost -> 2. less bikers -> 3. less accidents.

I don't believe in 1. -> 2. :)

Been off on the Apex Outback Postie ride last weekend, I have to get off my arse and do a ride report but in the mean time here is some of what happened on Saturday night, it went downhill from here.

(the other blokes are just balancing the bike)
