I'd like to see anyone ride a 3 or 4 wheeled dunny with a bath as a sidecar ANYWHERE in Australia more than a hundred yards and not get done for it! Huh? So why did a fellow Caponord rider have to get a 48-hour permit to ride a currently registered QLD-plated bike across WA to get home? When I didn't need any permit to ride 200km to Echuca to get my bike registered? Why do I need to pay $500 for a VIV whenever I resurrect a Repairable Write-off in Vic? Why do sidecars need handbrakes in NSW but not Vic? Why can P-platers only do 80 km/h on the freeway in NSW, but the posted limit as soon as they cross the border? I submit that we have more differences than similarities - the sooner we get rid of the semi-independent states and their self-justifying parasitic political hangers-on and just become one big country, the better off we'll be!
