I dont really get the L Plate thing being from QLD, but up here an RE (LAMS) licence requires you to have 0 BAC. The rules for a P plate rider don't require you to show a P plate on your bike if you are not required to show one on your car, or so I have been told. So that means most mature age riders dont need to strap a P plate to their motorbike if they have just got their RE licence. However, regardless of your age or experience you are still required to have a BAC of 0.0 for the first 12 months of your RE or your R (unrestricted) licence. I was watching this vid here on youtube [media=youtube]9DkIb4uPsUU[/media] . About 14 minutes in a 47 year old on a Ducatti gets pulled up, he had a few the night before and blew 0.02something after a previous night on the sauce. Now this is just bullshit, a guy of that age, having held a licence for that long should not be restricted to 0.0. I dont have a problem with cops in this case, they did not make the law. But its clearly a load of shit. In QLD, if you do not need to carry a P plate, I don't think the 0 BAC rule should apply. Now I am raging a lot here, and all you Queenslanders should too, because is the current range of bureaucrats have their way ALL of us motorcyclists will be required to have a BAC of 0.0. That means you will get done just as the Duke rider did in that youtube clip. I dont drink and then ride, but sometimes we go out west and get on the piss then ride home the next day. In that case, I would lose my licence.
