Hi to all, I just joined up and am interested in keeping up with what's happening in the way of new laws proposed by governments within Australia on bike riders. Most of my riding to date has always been done off road, still on register bikes to access forestries, and now after a big off have turned my attentions to casual road riding. I'm still nursing 6 broken ribs, a punctured lung and a smashed shoulder blade after an "off" on my husaberg. All injuries occurred following an encounter with a stump hole and with no one else involved , but at 53 I've decided that I don't bounce so well anymore and am shelving the berg. I still need my fix of riding, life without riding a bike is something I can't imagine, so casual road riding is my new out let. After reading road bike magazines during my hospital and recovery time, I can see the powers that be are trying to crack down on road bike riders. That is what brings me hear, so I will be reading the forums to keep up to date with proposed laws and how I can voice my opinions.
