    Here in Victoria it is perfectly legal to park your bike on the footpath. In
    Melbourne CBD you see many bikes parked on the footpath. What is the law in
    other states?

    In NSW you are encouraged and welcomed to park your bike on the footpath in
    return for a generous monetary contribution to the local council or state

    In NSW, the fine for parking on the footpath ($65 I think) is cheaper
    than any other parking fine.

    If you're going to park illegally, it's better to do that than anything

    When I lived in newtown I parked on the footpath for a year outside my
    house. Parking Inspectors never gave me a ticket, though the ticketed
    cars in front of my place occasionly.

    It's a big state. There's room for lots of different roads.
    Besides, riding a sportsbike through the twisties in the hills might be
    a shedload of fun, but it's certainly not the only way to enjoy
    motorcycling. I'm told a GS Adventure is quite nice in the Kimberly.

    It's just Perth and Freo that's boring.

    I've just got back to aus after 7 years abroad, maybe it was the
    comparison to other countries or maybe things have changed, but this
    country seems to have gone mad! The things that used to be good about
    australia, the good life, easygoing people, nice lifestyle etc have all
    gone out the window. The real terror in my mind, isnt a bomb going off
    in the subway killing maybe less people than dies of lung cancer from
    smoking each year, its much more insidious than that.

    Its the slow quiet desperate death that occurs in the margins; The
    aussie battler doing it harder than usual, adding up the bills each
    week and finding that things just arent going to work out. You work
    more and more overtime, scrape and scratch to get along, try to do the
    right thing, but deep down i think i alot of people are nervous... the
    nervousness makes them selfish and defensive, looking out for
    themselves instead of lending a hand. Despite good intentions, people
    are worried of getting caught out by whoever; the government, the cops,
    the council, phone company, boss or take your choice. And these are
    good honest people. Where is the time to just sit down and talk?
    Where is the chance to get out to the beach without waorrying about
    cost of petrol, parking tickets, not enough hours in the day, sunburn,
    cops or anything else you care to mention?

    The lifestyle just isnt there anymore, and i for one am thinking of
    relocating from sydney to anywhere else after having been back for 3
    months. Another state or another country. The cost of life here is
    mad. We are over regulated and overcharged for everything, but the
    people doing the producing are getting short changed as well. That
    huge band of 'middle men' is squeezing the life out of this country.

    On a bike related note, i got myself a nice vf750 3 weeks ago, had a
    car since i got here. I live in the city, cant park anywhere,
    apartment management board wont let me park in the car park, council
    wont let me park on the street, get charged the same as cars for
    everything; tolls, parking etc. Where is the fair go? Even with the
    high price of gas though, the bike puts a smile on my face. Rode up
    the pacific highway on the weekend, got it cranked over. Temporary
    amnesia is a bliss~

    yes well good to hear im not the only one that
    Yes well good to hear im not the only one that has notice that we are geting
    [email protected]#k over and they dont even use a rubber!!
    When will any of us ever stand up we seem too apathetic in this country
    slowley but shurely we have all our rights and money taken away seems suttle
    bit by bit but its still real enough.
    2000 johny gave our army the power to turn its guns on our own people no one
    said boo now he pulls apart the unions that look after the workers and wants
    to jail people for 2 weeks without even a charge or any rights to go befor a
    court to defend themselve i hate terrorest myself but i also dislike
    dictators too :).
    And yes you may be right being over regulated might be making people
    ps looking for a nice Honda xlv for salle any one got one ??
