Bill Elder replied to James Mahon's discussion Super Car Runs Bicycle Rider Down from Behind - Akuna Bay - May 2018
"You'd wish they have some sort of retribution and no longer conduct road tests the same way, but looking at a recent Au road test of the 570, there's mention of understeer at silly speeds on public roads!! You can only hope it's…"

Bill Elder replied to Bob Moore's discussion What makes healthier suburbs- Domain study
"From memory, they fit the stereotype perfectly....camry in the driveway....so might be kama sutra specialists. :) Went past Schofields station today, plenty of bike parking both sides even. Depressing looking at that landscape though, used to see…"

Bill Elder replied to Bob Moore's discussion What makes healthier suburbs- Domain study
"They had a tv news story last week or the week before, about one of those greenfield developments in the western suburbs. The couple interviewed lived in Marsden Park, suburb wasn't served by bus, and they only had one car. He worked as a baker…"

Bill Elder replied to James Mahon's discussion Super Car Runs Bicycle Rider Down from Behind - Akuna Bay - May 2018
"No amount of money will make up for those injuries! Pity too, 3rd party only comes out of a pool rather than directed at the perpetrator. Would seem Trivetts encourages recklessness on public roads with waves of cars given the chance to turn up the…"

Bill Elder replied to dr bean's discussion Regular commuting on the 'other side of the road'
"Probably right to be cautious initially, an acquaintance doing a Harley tour in the US, was paralysed from the waist down 3 years back. Pulled out of a servo and ran down the wrong side of the road in a semi rural area and went over a rise to…"

Bill Elder replied to PeterT's discussion About time the lack of enforcement MHL made the news
"We all know police lives matter, citizens, at least on two wheels, are of course asking for it and deserve everything they get!  Last night's news had the government proposing new 40kmh zones in certain high density pedestrian areas,…"

Bill Elder replied to Jeremy's discussion Lane filtering
"Moi! ;) That RMS rules guideline doesn't seem to be entirely trustworthy on footpath riding either with the last amendment passed - probably need to refer to legislation for better accuracy."

Bill Elder replied to Jeremy's discussion Lane filtering
"Pretty sure the rule about staying seated was amended in the recent past to include standing - thinking it's just in the last 12~18 months and about the time Drunken got the arse."

Bill Elder replied to James Mahon's discussion Super Car Runs Bicycle Rider Down from Behind - Akuna Bay - May 2018
"Reminds me of yesterday with a red 4wd overtaking. Left lane was closed for a couple hundred metres with traffic cones and workmen in a 40k zone....I'm probably doing mid 30s after coming down a hill, the goose overtakes in an intersection with…"

Bill Elder replied to James Mahon's discussion Super Car Runs Bicycle Rider Down from Behind - Akuna Bay - May 2018
"It was given a paragraph in the Manly Daily the other day, nothing much more than the make of the car and the road. I'm not sure I'd get too worked up about the fact it's a "supercar", had far more issues with everyday…"

Bill Elder replied to noelbike's discussion Road Rule Question
"It goes back decades to motorcycle practice I'd wager, not putting a foot down at a stop sign, considered not stopping.....and they've just used the same criteria for bicycles.  Understandable if you're riding a 350kg Gold…"

Bill Elder replied to John Knight's discussion What to do about morning rat runners illegally (or sneakily) turning onto Parriwi Rd Mosman
"Surprisingly, not all that many do the brazen alternative left turn, it's all subterfuge through the parking lot....lots of motorcycles and scooters is my observation. Ironic reading the MD article the other day calling out Parriwi Rd residents…"

Bill Elder replied to PeterT's discussion Cycling Remembrance Memorial, Sutherland Friday on April 13 at 1:15pm
"Alternative to, and less unsightly than a white bike in there I guess! Pretty sure someone was run down from behind and killed in the cemetery in the last 12 months(??) or so.....the last place you'd expect crazies."

Bill Elder replied to tonydelyall's discussion Getting in/out of the domestic airport?
""Am I correct in thinking there isn't even pedestrian access to the domestic airport also?" Definitely harder nowadays, at least heading north....very convoluted, with lots of crossings and button pushing. If you were keen on…"

Bill Elder replied to Snowy_5's discussion Rant`s Corner
"It's funny, the old NSW system seemed to work perfectly fine with the local milkbar taking your bottles and giving you your 5 cents(sixpense?)...or whatever it was back then. These mega recycling centres seem to take inconvenience to new levels."

Bill Elder replied to tonydelyall's discussion Hearing electric cars coming?
"One of the UK car mags did a test of an electric vehicle in the late 80s/early 90s in Paris, the tyres they mentioned on that were low rolling resistance, probably to help the range back then - so not as much noise generated. Biggest issue they had,…"
