Crash prompts sanity plea?

By Doctor Evil 19 November 2007 24

Page 2 of the CT this morning reports another car vs motorcycle duel with the latter coming off second best.

Nothing unusual about that, right?

On closer inspection the bike is a late model KTM motocrosser, probably an SX 125 or similar.

Unregistered, no headlight, no indicators, no brake light, running on knobby tyres. What on earth is this thing doing on Hindmarsh Drive?

The president of the Motorcycle Riders Association of the ACT, Peter Major says “But there is still a problem of recognition for motorcyclists on the roads, and people have to be aware when they get in their car to be more careful and pay more attention to motorcycle riders.”
The racing number plate on the front (where the headlight and rego should be) displays a simple sticker – “No Fear”.

Says it all really……..

What’s Your opinion?

Well, glad to hear that he is still alive w3st0nFTW. Hopefully he will make a full recovery and I will meet up with him and his bike on a remote dirt track somewhere. Just not in the middle of Woden.

And there is no difference between the truck and bike in your scenario – neither should be on the road. Don’t see why you think one justifies the other though.

Doctor Evil he is a friend of a friend on mine who has been riding with him b4 (on a private farm) and has told me about the bike when he first got it…
Yes thats correct what the diff between a unreg bike and a truck that is unroad worthy carrying a 2ton load and unsucure.?

He is still alive btw H he has been in and out of his coma.

bd84 nice points i think we should add them all up and send it off the the RTA to add to their rules and reg

“Also it may be safer to ‘gun’ the bike for a couple of 100 metres of so to get away from bad car drivers”

Yep, the further away from the BMWs, Commodores and Falcons you can, the better…
