BE VERY VERY CAREFUL OUT THERE.





















































































The picture is blurred, hard to make out, but it begs the question. Was the car on its' side of the road?

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE




























AT LEAST THREE PARLIAMENTARY INQUIRIES in Victoria have documented unreliable and even misleading road crash data but VicPol continues to inflate legitimate road rider figures with unrider casualties. Because crash data is unreliable, the real cause of road motorcycle & scooter casualties is too often listed as "lost control of vehicle" when the crash may have been caused by a driver's error, animal strike or damaged roads.

Car drivers can cause a crash then leave the scene. A kangaroo or wombat can drop a bike then limp off into the scrub. And, potholes kill.

IT'S ALL GOOD

TOY RUNs don't just do good on the day. All TOY RUNs remind people to give and they improve the image of riders and that makes us safer on our roads.

The TOY RUN for FATHER BOB in Melbourne collected a van load of gifts and lot's of donations on Sunday, December 11, 2016. It also generated three channel TV news and a lot of online coverage. People who could not be at the run, or who forgot, are reminded to donate to FATHER BOB at the office in Albert Park or through the website.

Take a couple of  minutes to look at Bernie's video newsletter. It was a great day.

TAC STATS 2016


ACCORDING TO TAC STATS,  lives lost in the calendar year to midnight, December 12, 2016, 7 cyclists and 52 motorcyclists have died on Victorian roads.

That is 742 percent more motorcycle deaths than bicycle deaths. Yet we are the poor cousins to push bike riders in that we don't attract the same funding and advocacy to improve our safety on the roads.

IT'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH


ROAD DISASTER IN VIC


TASSIE TOY RUN - DEC 3 2016

Don't believe everything you read in the papers. It was thousands not hundreds and it was a sensational event. Families and tourists lined the route and waved from bridges. The police operation was excellent and rider behaviour first class.It took me back to MRA TOY RUNs in Melbourne in the early 1990s and  late 1980s. Great to be a part of. Congratulations MRAT. Well done.
