Listened to bits and pieces of this guy's radio show this morning. Apparently "hoon" motorcyclists got a guernsey with one guy bragging about how he can do Waratah Bay to Cranbourne in around 43 mins. for a 120km ride. The guy actually got "caller of the hour" prize, which caused a few people to call in to admonish Mitchell for "rewarding" hooning. His point was that the guy was honest and open enough to admit his folly. Whatever. Then other callers calling in including one woman who claims she witnessed a bike fatality yesterday. Fellow was supposedly weaving in and out of traffic and came to grief. Another guy reckons that two bikes came up behind him and passed at lightspeed and disappeared "at 200 kays or more". He rang the Rosebud police. Dunno what the outcome of that was. So, yeah, all in all not a good morning on this guy's show for motorcycling and its image. Then ironically, during an ad break a voiceover which sounded a hell of a lot like Robert Doyle, MEL's new mayor, did an ad for drivers to look out for motorcyclists. Well done and sounded a bit out of place during the bits and pieces on bikes.
