    We can now stretch our legs by standing on the bike or stretching one leg at a time...

    and new standards for helmets..
    New rules for motorcycle helmets
    Currently, motorcycle riders on Queensland roads are required to wear a helmet that complies with Australian standard AS1698 or AS/NZS1698. From early 2015, the range of motorcycle helmets approved for use in Queensland will be expanded to include those complying with the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) 22.05 standard.

    Don't know what others think but I am encouraged by some of the more recent decision makers taking some positive steps to be bring us in-line with other nations. It's no longer a case of "lights on, nobody home". Perhaps there is some hope for us yet. (am I being cynical?????)

    So I lane filtered for the first time today. Nice big slot between the two lanes at a set of lights. I thought 'Wish I could go through, WAIT! I can as of yesterday!' then I got to thinking......

    It says on page 7 that you must hold an Open licence for the class of bike being riden. Now, heres where I get confused.

    Ive been licenced for car since 2002, so I obviously Open there.

    Ive had my RE licence since 2008. So would I not be an open licence holder here? (considering I was O when I got my RE licence).

    Or Is an RE licence considered a P licence for a motorbike no matter how long you've had an RE licence for? Ive actually wondered this for awhile....

    you are on a open license and as long as you are only riding a lams approved bike you are all good. if you are riding a bigger bike, then you are classed as a learner on that bike and need L plates and a supervisor and all that stuff.

    After your first year of re you are then allowed to pillion, drink to 0.05 so therefore are an open re rider

    We have PB in the ACT for open car licence holders after 6 months on P plates. Still restricted to Learner and Novice Approved bikes for 6 months but no need for P plates.

    I'm on my full motorbike licence as of today! :D

    After my morning commute I'm glad the filtering trial started in the ACT yesterday. Big traffic snarl on my way into work today due to a crash.

    ok, just as a FYI, someone on a diff group got pulled up by a cop today for lane filtering. the cop did not know the new rules, so be ready with a phone to go to the QPS website to show them if you get pulled up. she filmed him not knowing the rules.

    Which is odd. Because they are there to enforce the laws. So you would think they would know them. Or they were just trying to catch someone out who didn't know the law.

    Without wishing to take any ones side, think the chiefs are to blame for not alerting the troops of the changes. Lets hope the message gets through to all sooner rather than later.
