Nowhere To Ride

There's hardly anywhere to ride legally in NSW.

Land developers, policy exclusion, clowns and noise has resulted in closure of nearly all available areas.

Now there are Environmental problems as riders push into areas they would not have used previously.

Erosion from new track creation, grooving of water diversion banks (roll-overs), creek bank destruction and spreading of weeds and diseases from unwashed machines are all problems now.

Legal Issues

If you are caught riding unlicensed on an unregistered bike without greenslip (CTP) insurance, you're likely to get the Trifecta of fines, currently costing $1899.00

Also the owner of the bike may be fined for allowing a rider to ride it.

A second offence gets expensive and can be really inconvenient.

Riding in the street, in a local park or in a National Park or Forestry area, it's all the same. If you're under age, your parents will have the problem.

Having CTP (greenslip) insurance is going to help protect you (or your parents) from being sued for injuries caused to someone you hurt, like someone you run into. Without CTP, the lawyers may just take your house.
