On Tuesday the MCC of NSW in the form of Christopher Burns attended the latest meeting of the Vehicle Standards Working Group (VSWG).
The Minister for Roads congratulated the MCC and Transport for NSW on their collaborative effort in clearing up the motorcycle blinker issue.
Riders had been defected for rear blinkers not being 300mm apart when the road rules stated in part that they could be as close together as 180mm.
Discussion led to a gazettal of a change of road rules to remove any confusion for our states finest.
Rear blinkers are now set at minimum of 180mm apart.
The issue of fender eliminators was also raised and we will work through that one in 2014 but rest assured there will be a change.

We also raised the issue of statutory write offs for motorcycles and we may have some good news on that one as well.
I am seeking clarification on the exact laws as they are not clear but it seems you can re-register Stat write offs in a couple of ways.
Once we have the info we will spread it around.

Cool, I had to pay an $80.00 RTA tax / fine for having the integrated blinkers.
When can I start using the integrated blinkers again?

On that note, does that then mean all fines will be retroactively refunded?

As I understand it, the current laws allow for a user to apply to the RTA for an Authority to Repair, however all repairs have to be certified by a relevant signatory and then go through the Blue Slip/AUVIS process...long and protracted. There are obviously stringent conditions attached to the vehicle itself...

The alternative is to have the vehicle written off in another state, repaired then re-registered outside of NSW. You can then transfer rego over to NSW.

I thought the Stat W/O laws were introduced in conjunction with Insurance claim reforms? That is, the threshold for considering Write Off status was increased to something like 85%?

Either way SW law reform would be most welcome, how many track bikes can the market sustain? :) It's also ridiculous that a country as small as Australia (population wise) has such variation in laws from state to state...
