...Sigh.... It would have been nice to get the trial period covering all of NSW or even Australia..
Still, it's a start, maybe the thin edge of the wedge for Oz riders. I hope so.
If it works out well, we could even see some sense from the powers-that-be about other motorcycling in general.
Lately, after years of lane splitting and filtering through traffic, i've noticed that the growing number of Asian drivers here in Australia, especially the young girls, become absolutely brain dead when you put them in a car.
Then when you try filtering past them in grid-locked traffic they get a surprise to see a motorcycle rider beside their shiny new car trying to squeeze past to get to the front of the long queue of stopped vehicles.
It's like ... Wha!!?? where did he come from? Oohh watch out! Don't scratch my car while i'm chatting to my girlfriends on my phone with my car stereo blaring while i'm doing my nails.
Honestly...it's like they leave their brain behind once they get behind the wheel.
Hmmm, after reading what I just typed, I realised that they are not so different from most other cage drivers.
Anyways, I hope that the area of "legal" filtering is extended to cover all of Australia in the near future.
Either way, it won't stop me from doing it.
