All the news we could squeeze in

Lane filtering legislation changes!

We have word from an insider in the Government that all States and Territories will shortly introduce lane filtering legislation. The written legislation covering lane filtering will then be repealed Australia wide, so in fact there will be no specific legislation, but motorcycle riders will still be able to lane filter and not get issued any infringements by Police. Yes, we think they’ve finally gone mad, or maybe not?

The Man comes out of retirement

Ducati WSBK rider, Davide Giugliano crashed in testing at Phillip Island, a few days before the WSBK round and injured his back. A replacement rider was sort and that happened to be none other than Aussie, Troy Bayliss. Troy raced with his famous number “21” and performed quite well despite the lack of setup time and trouble with tyres blistering. Will we see the famous #21 at the next WSBK in Thailand? It is very much a possibility.
