  • Road safety strategy 2020 – have agreed to a motorcycle specific forum. They keep changing the date. I will let you know when a date is set. Looking at dropping speed limits by 10% as of last strategy. We need as many people to do the survey to prevent the speed reduction – it is unrealistic.
  • Lane filtering – sorry I couldn’t get sorted but it is a really slow process, in the minister’s office.
  • $1000 grant from road safety commission for MOTOCAP talk set for the 8th August having some trouble with venue but have one sorted Scarborough community centre. Sending the information to everyone, Ainslie – If you send me the flyer I will put it on the website. We have $1000.00 and I have spoken to Chris Horan from Deacon University and he is happy to pay for his accommodation, car etc, we will pay for his airfares and maybe the venue.
  • Joondalup M/C and scooter rider testing to resume 5th
  • I am pushing for more people to have higher level First Aide particularly truck drivers and motorcyclists through the Road Safety Commission.
  • Steve Wheadon – I would like to move a motion that this meeting acknowledge Dave for his years of service and commitment and his achievements and would like to have it recorded on the minutes of this meeting if anyone would like to second that. Seconded – Fred Mali. Unanimous vote.


None tabled.



We are now with Bendigo bank.

We need to organise a monthly email as we don’t have the magazine anymore. I have received complaints that people don’t know what is happening because they don’t have or do not use computers or Facebook and don’t check the website.



None tabled.


 Basically covered in the Presidents report.


  • I believe we are a bit low because Lyn was waiting till after the AGM.
  • Lyn won’t be standing for stock manager so we are looking for someone to do that.
