If you oppose the reintroduction of front number plates for motor cycles with all of the associated dangers that front mounting hardware has to offer, please fill out the petition here.

Victoria may well be only the start, and riders are expected buy $200 mounting kits and have them installed.

I signed it, very dumb idea, unsafe to riders & pedestrians, may effect the cooling and handling of the bike, could damage the bike. also looks v stupid -much like the c*ck that's proposed this retrograde policy

Can't sign 'cause I'm not and Aussie, but I'm curious, what kind of mounting would it require? Vertical on the fender?


Flat on the front (ala racing number plate)?

This what we used to have on the front guard.  It can be dangerous.

OMG, that thing could slice your face off! I shudder to think of what could happen. Still we wouldn't want to deprive the Victorian govt a few xtra bucks in the name of rider/pedestrian safety:)  Twofinger

High time that bikers started to become political. Email your local member as often as you can (not about rubbish make your point sensibly)

These idiots need to remember that we elected them and we can reverse that soon which puts them on the unemployment scrap heap.

And Mr Brumby, you are now a VERY small fish in a big Labour pond and Mr Rudd would love to kick your pedantic arse out of the pond.

If you want to make Victoria a safer state pour more money into Hospitals, Nurses, Good roads, NO privatised and corrupt fine collectors and corrupt police decrying the good done by HONEST and DECENT police like Mrs. Nixon and her deputy.

Remember the wilderness Mr. Brumby, it awaits you and your croneys.
