HISTORY DAR 1985

In the 1980s there were half as many bikes on our roads but the number of bikes on PR rides was numbered in thousands. The highest-profile organisation in Australia was the Motorcycle Riders Association. The original MRA was formed in Melbourne on May 16, 1978.

At the end of the 1990s and into the 2000s the MRA declined. Conservatives got into the MRAs administration with a no confrontation attitude to lobbying. This was disastrous for the motorcycle & scooter community.  Today riders are losing what they won back then.

This newspaper clipping was published nearly 30 years ago. Driver Awareness rides were annual events.
