    Red face Um, LOL $5 if I drop my VR?

    OK, so is that $5 per drop? Per day? For instance if set on it's side twice the first day? Once to the amusement of a passing motorist.
    I've been riding a LOT of years, but the added length, weight, and different turning characteristics of the VR took me by surprise.
    I'm just glad it was the "beater" bike and not the "new" cherry 86.

    Default OK, paid up

    I gave myself a break and decided one $5 fine covered both drops in one day. Fine paid.

    I think $5 buys you a "Day Ticket".

    I too am a believer in getting people out on two wheels before they drive four.

    Just riding a scooter, moped or small motorcycle builds an incredible amount of road-sense very quickly. You gain an understanding of road conditions, surfaces and traffic behaviour vastly more quickly than in a car, and you develop an appreciation of other road users that some car drivers never have.

    I would favour leaving the driving age for small capacity motorcycles at 16, and raising the car driving age to 18 .... and making it a condition of a car license that two wheel training had been taken, and a test passed.

    No one would be forced to ride a motorcycle, but they would be required at least to demonstrate that they can ride one, and most of them would love it ... especially if that's all the transport they could have before 18.

    For the price of a small amount of regulation and very modest capital outlay we could give a massive boost to an entire industry, as well as make the roads much safer for everyone ... and reduce congestion and save oil.

    Too bad a law isn't passed allowing M/C to openly carry and shoot to defend themselves. I'm sure that word would get around really fast.

    Not only will they look twice but 3 or 4 times.
