So I went for my weekly shop, and Aldi had a camping stove and some long tarp poles I really wanted. The camping stove ran off butane, and butane was 12 for $12 bucks so I got a box of them too. At this stage I was starting to question how my bike was going to look on the way home with the weeks groceries as well. Although I was well from what I would actually consider overloading given I could easily fit a 120kg person as pillion which would be 10 times the weight of what I had on there. I have a large top box and a special made box that sits on the pillion seat for shopping. Regardless it looked pretty ridiculous. Poles sticking out, bags tied to the side and boxes stacked up. It was 100% safe to ride, in fact I could barely even notice the difference. I didn't get booked or see a cop but I did start to wonder if I could. I'll post pics depending on the legality of it all. I assume if I was going to get booked the law would be- TOWING - LOADS Drive/tow vehicle with load causing instability $397 3 points Road Rules 2008 Rule 292 (b) This seems to be a hugely grey and I was wondering what is allowed under it and how instability is judged. I'll admit what I had on there didn't look particularly safe but It was far from causing any instability or reducing my ability to ride. I always do the shopping on the bike and hoping to know what I can get away with whenever Aldi decides to have more specials.
