    MAG is ramping it up

    Yes I hear the KB groan.

    Some of us are still a little annoyed that come 1 July the ACC levy for cars is coming down despite their increased crash rate and the levy for bikes is going to stay the same despite our "decreased" crash rate. Yes I know statistics and more damn statistics moulded to suit whoever is using them at the time.

    The MSAC still hold $10 million of money collected from bikers. No indication of how this is going to be used to promote safety. In fact every request for information from MSAC results in an "OIA" - but it is money collected from bikers.

    We actually paid attention and our next little "whine" will take place outside an AA office. Those of you that secretly hang on Farcebook and I know there are a bunch of you

    I think they are offering courses subsidised by ACC, er I mean money taken from bikers.

    DeMyer's Laws - an argument that consists primarily of rambling quotes isn't worth bothering with.

    We will do so actively, we will not passively accept the eroding of our legal right to ride.


    What erosion? Explain - can't be rego fees as that's just a payment to enjoy the use of public roads :-)




    Indeed the ability for a learner to ride a much greater and realistic range of bikes has been opened up recently. Seat of the pants observation is it is bringing in new riders as I am seeing a increasing number of younger riders on learner bikes.
