g'day all, I will be buying a road/trail bike soon, & just had a query regarding the off road aspect of riding. I will only be using it for recreational riding around my local area of camden, a bit of road cruising & a bit of trail riding. I am a pretty sedate rider, off road I wont be popping wheelies & churning the place up, most likely on a DRZ which is pretty quiet, so I wont be pissing people off, not that I will be staying in one place too long anyway, just passing through at reasonable sort of speeds. what can I expect in the way of hassles off the tar? odviously I will be registered, insured etc & if I get "talked to" I am 49, short hair, no tatts, no adr mods etc so hopefully by first impressions I should'nt cop any "attitude" (touch wood) I know of course to stay out of fenced of areas, & other common sense areas, pedestrians, dog walkers & kids & the like. there are a number of places I could go for a look around here, passing through reserves & the like which are basically "green corridoors" that dont have a park etc, but do have pathwyas etc, or just worn walking trails, then theres tracks to dams & other places. who will dish out the punishment? council rangers or police? who does where & what are the fines, or more importantly, what demerit points are involved? I did spot a post somewhere the other day about somebody coping a $400+ fine for riding on a footpath near the anzac bridge where other bikes park that wasnt actually a footpath, so really excited about what info I will be getting back!! thanks for any advice given. cheers!
