  • Lane filtering rules vary across borders
    Riders crossing state and territory borders should be aware that motorcycle lane filtering rules and penalties vary substantially. This week the ACT joined most of Australia (except NT and WA which is joining soon) with lane-filtering rules after a protracted 30-month trial. However, the rules vary from just over the borders in NSW. There were several rule variances in the trial that have been carried over to the permanent rules. But the ACT also added a ban on filtering in ANY 40km/h including school zones, roadworks and city centres, even though the CBD is surely the most vital place to ... read more

  • Ducati to launch muddy Multi or Scrambler?
    Ducati has teased a new bike with a muddy image of a grey panel with their red logo and the promise that a “new bike is coming” on Friday (12 October 2018). The bike will be revealed at 11am Italian time on Friday, which is 9pm AEDT. So what could it be? The muddy image most likely means it’s not the homologation special version of the V4 superbike to compete in World Superbikes. (Sadly it is tipped to have those ugly little winglets!) That is, unless it’s an enduro version of the Panigale V4! The 195bhp (145kW) V-twin is more likely ... read more
