On Wednesday June 23rd Assistance Commissioner Ken Lay went on Neil Mitchells talkback and attacked Motorcyclists as being over represented in the road toll, and that “Hooning” was responsible for this. The following thread resulted: https://netrider.net.au/forums/showthread.php?t=113398 This outburst coincided with the Launch of the Vicride Program. A World first study into the value of increased training for rider safety, and as such undermined the launch. A Campaign was decided on by MRA (Vic) starting with an awareness ride as outlined in this thread: https://netrider.net.au/forums/showthread.php?t=113530 Many things were learnt from this activity, and dependent on the response from the Assistant commissioner, further auctioned will be planned. It has been stated in the preceding thread that it is time for that thread to die and be replaced. So this is the current discussion thread until further action is decided on. Please read through those threads for context before heading in here boots and all, because most details have been thoroughly covered. We are currently waiting on report back from the MRA who have since the ride had a meeting with Ken Lay, and we are eagerly waiting to hear what he had to say for himself on the subject of his vilification of riders and his misrepresentation, and dishonest conduct in regards to the statistics involved with his tirade.
