I took part in all the BAT (Bikers Against Tolls) protest rides. I was embarrassed by the small number of adventure/DS/MX bikers that attended. I suppose that deep down, we don't enjoy crowds/traffic/etc. but prefer the call of the wild, the dust and the freedom of adventure...

YOu don't need a lot of bikes to have an effect on traffic and  get peoples attention . If you join the BAT group you will see they have got add-hoc rides sometimes leaving from the Engen here in Woodmead . % to 6 bikes everytime but they get airtime on Jakaranda and a lot of support from most cagers . But any excuse to get out , so I will join .

How about starting a post and then you can tell everybody how they should either go about protesting this toll thing or show them how to install the e-tag . You have made comments in all the E-Toll related comments and all are negative , or did I maybe miss a post where you gave your suggestions and advice on the matter ?

IMHO All you gonna do is piss off the cagers that already do not like bikers and have little or no effect and impact on the people who own the tolls and SANRAL so rather don't do it.  :dousing:
