I am not sure how much relevance this will have for members of this Forum, so feel free to delete this post or move it to a more relevant section. A proposal for Rec Rego in NSW is getting some momentum This aired on the ABC on the 15th July 2014: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-07-...n-to-combat-illegal-trail/5602960?section=nsw I know Vic has had the Rec Rego program in place for quite a few year now, as I am not from there, I do not know the positives or negatives of the Vic Scheme. I guess this proposal is only the first step for NSW; at the moment the rider still has to have a NSW licence, so this proposal still does not make it legal for underage or unlicenced riders. Basically, a greater choice of bikes for licenced riders. Eventually, I would love to see it expanded to include a rider's permit, to be used by unlicenced riders / underage (down to 12 years old) with the provision that a licenced rider must be accompanying them, much like a junior shooters licence. Even with rec rego in place, it may still not be enough to get riders who have no interest of road riding, to go through all the steps/costs to get a licence.
