I am truly impressed (and a little shocked).
We have a dedicated website aimed at Scooter riders and improving safety and it is Govt funded.

Then again they did hike the ACC levy and motorcycle rates went through the roof. Oh well at least I can see where my taxes went.

Like it. Very nice site. Good information. Is this part of a larger PTW awareness campaign? How did it hit your radar? I'm wondering if there aren't similar websites here in the States that are collecting ether dust for lack of awareness.

Thanks for posting the link. Your NZ tax dollars just went a lot further.

Short, pithy, succinct. One of the better 'guvmint' sites.

I like it also. There was a lot of good general info that will benefit all riders in this world.

The piece is nice enough for the wiki.

I agree, it makes a great intro to new riders and a link on the Wiki may be valuable.
As long as the North American MVers understand that we (Kiwis) ride on the correct side of the road
