  1. Interesting, another Facebook revolution about to take off? ;-)

  2. Hope so, Kim! - although just a 'spec' in the Facebook revolution phenomenon - still any act of rebellion chips away at 'Big Helma' who in effect has neutered a readily available transport option for us here in Australia

  3. Personally as a cyclist and motorist, I think you should visit this before coming to conclusions whether to wear a helmet or not ...

  4. Thank you, anonymous, for dropping by. The two options you put forward as a choice do not automatically go hand in hand no matter how much you'l like them to.

    The study from PA has been labelled 'lightweight' in the field of academia as the presentation of data collected was largely anecdotal - hardly convincing stuff, and certainly not adequate enough to persist with legislation that so severely curtails civil liberties.

    Once again the basis for our current law has been revealed to be flawed and hysterical.
