ROAD SAFETY/ POLITICAL REPORT: Dave
- I met with Transport office for M/C use in the bus lanes. There will be 2 trials, South St and the Freeway for 6 months. The MRA are the advocates to inform and educate riders of use of these lanes.
- Over the next 10 years there are going to be more bus lanes which could be a real advantage M/C riders if it becomes permanent.
- 10 days before start of trials the MRA will do presentations to the media and all M/C groups. The MRA need to monitor and educate riders not to speed or interfere with buses in these lanes and monitor mopeds if they are to slow.
STOCK REPORT: Lyn
- Dave – Can we get coloured shirts and print logo instead of embroidered?
Lyn – We used to have the logo printed, but it became quite expensive and embroidered looks more professional. Will get pricing.
If we do go back to printed we have to pay for the set up fees as well.
- Queensland’s new laws for outlaw gangs is affecting all M/C users and is really getting out of hand. A fighting fund has been set up for High Court challenge.
I would like the MRA to make a donation.
- Motion – Lyn “For the MRA to donate $500.00 to the AMC fighting Fund for High Court challenge in Queensland”
18 – yes, 1 – no, 1- abstain. The yes wins, Dave to organise.
