    Sad day Gary is a good guy that did a lot for bikes. It also leaves Tony Quinn owning all the upper north Island tracks. Pretty bad situation for the trackday and club racers. ...

      I was hoping, on the interactive one, that it would end horrifically if I got the answers wrong... no such luck...

      Fingers crossed everyone

      From all the stuff about it that I have seen on telly and in the papers... buying a green car will sort it. No worries.

      Just remember...that even if you think you have a handle on the new Give Way rule, the other person may not.

      Being Vigilant is the key.

      Or some of us simply must make things harder for ourselves. New tyres (knobbly 50/50 tyres of course) being fitted tomorrow with a forecast of rain and the rules changing

      Don't be worried about tomorrow. Everyone will be attentive. It's the days and weeks that follow that are the real concern as people's vigilance drops and reflexes take over. Those 10 and 20 year old driving reflexes..

      Yep, just like when youre first learning to drive. Every intersection youre thinking "who gives way", after a few months it becomes habit/instinct and you stop thinking. Im predicting next weekend is when the accidents will happen....you may have learnt the new rules, but has your subconcious?..

      pfft all is well, they either know the new rules or buy me a new vehicle.
      Needless to say I'm not on the bike at the mo & I could do with a new cage, this ones getting expensive to run.

      No one knew what the old ones were. How will a rule change make ANYTHING different from the "watch out for myself first" MO you should be using?
