I only just found Netrider, so forgive me if I am asking a question that others have already voiced... When it comes to bike related issues such as lane filtering, front number plates etc etc...what is the postion of the bike manufacturers we buy our bikes from? Harley, Honda, Yamaha, Ducati, BMW etc. Are they doing battle on our behalf? Do they support us if they feel we are in the right? Do they have a team of industry collective experts available to provide real insight into the benefits and realities of motorcycling in Australia? Are they in touch with departments such as the NTC? If yes they do, that's great. If not...why not? I'm really interested to hear everyone's thoughts on this. Cheers.
