Some more info from tonights MCC meeting. If you want more proof of the extremely poor way that motorcyclists are treated in NSW(as if you needed any more :evil: ), just heard at the MCC meeting that the RTA has outright refused to look at ANY measure to make wire rope barriers safer for motorcyclists. This is despite all of the MCC lobbying, a rider getting decapitated on the M4 and VicRoads being about to trial a 7.5km stretch of "rider-safe" WRB modifications on high motorcycle traffic roads. The RTA is just not interested at all because it would cost money. Did you know that green slips in NSW have skyrocketed over the last month or so. It isn't totally across the board but the MCC is getting reports that of the 7 licensed green slip providers many of them have almost double their prices. Some are around $650. It is now cheaper to buy an insurance green slip for a V8 in NSW than it is for a bike. Aparently this may be due to the Motor Accidents Authority amending the controls on pricing bands allowable for motorcycle green slips. MCC is looking itno it and putting a pseudo-legal case up against it. Speaking of insurance, the MCC may be taking up the fight for a rider who was "covered" by NRMA insurance(not NRMA general as NRMA insurance is now a different mob to NRMA proper) when a valve let go on the rear wheel at speed. Big stack resulted and the pillion was very seriously injured. When NRMA assessed the case they refused to cover them citing it as an at fault accident. Probably as a maintenance issue. They are now up shit creek thanks to these assholes. Dragon...can you shed any light on this? The state planning authorities are still totally neglecting motorcyclists. Recent proof was that one of the MCC delegates who is a pushbiker as well saw notices everywhere in the NSW pushbike community about this planning authority holding meetings. She mentioned it to the MCC who had not been contacted, nor had any other MC club that the MCC knew of. They sent a rep and when she spoke to the Senior planner, she mentioned that they had just completed the new plans for redeveloping parts of Darling Harbour, including parking and roads, and that had totally and utterly not considered motorcycles. Cars, trucks pushbikes, pedestrians are all catered for, but not motorcycles. MCC is trying to rectify that now. The more MCC meetings I attend the more I realise how disgraceful the state of road management is in NSW.
