  1. The purpose of this thread is to be more of a knowledge base collecting ideas for possible motorcycle campaigns. There is no wrong or right here. It's just a collection of ideas.

    This is a good video that could be adapted into an ad for motorcycles. (Watch it and you'll see what I mean.)

    I'd like to see an aggressive action campaign where something like this is aired:

    [media=youtube]8xMfk1msw9A[/media]

    By aggressive, I mean drop the "We are not Hoons" stuff and chase the idea that Driver inattentiveness/lack of skill is the reason for the increased bike toll.

    Doesn't matter if that is the reason for the increase, puts the other guy on the backfoot.

  8. Zenali there is also the one we discussed regarding bikes are not cars.
    We should get together and think about making it.

  9. Absolutely. We'll have to put out a casting call. :)

  12. There was one on youtube I seen a while back with cars pulling into a servo and riders stuck on the windscreen or in the bumper, was quite graphic but worked really well. Can't seem to find it at the moment.

  14. That "Don't Ride Us Off" is exactly the kind of thing we need more of. I wonder if we can get it aired again?

  19. i think we urgently need to put a human face back into the public perception of riders.
    to show that we are just regular people with families and jobs, like everybody else.

    because, the demonization of all riders via talkshow hosts and even a certain high ranking policeman incites hatred towards us from other road users.

    one thing that stood out to me on a you tube clip on 3AW, was the MRA president asking for respect on the roads... and the talkshow hosts just giggling at that.

    not funny, we are vulnerable on the roads.

  20. Get solid white lines replaced by dashed lines so we can overtake legally again.
