Hi, consider the situ below: A litre bike (CBR1000RR...wow, yep, my little buddy and I stopped and check out the bike) is parked on a foothpath adjacent to a busy CBD park. The rider mounts his bike and takes off at a fairly fast pace (25kph+) down the path (100mtrs) so that he can get onto the road via a driveway. The launched as such that it attracted comments like "hoon", "showoff", "bikers!" from people in the vicinity. Now, what you're opinion on the following. - Are bikers allowed to ride down the footpath until they get to the next (most convenient) driveway and then enter the road? Or do they have to jump the curb? - If you are riding down a footpath, at what speed is acceptable (by both rider & the people around them)? - Taking off at 25kph is slow for litre bikes, I don't know, I've never been on one... (I'll stuck on a 250 for now... mmmm) Personally, I didn't think much of the whole thing. The kids looked and had a smile, a bit of awe I reckon. I thought the rider was cautious, he had the whole foothpath to himself, no one had to jump out of the way or anything... if the guy was really showing off, he would have reved it and let the micron pipes sing. I just thought, gee... are all riders perceived as hoons?
