I saw many weird and wonderful things being carried on motorbikes in Vietnam (including a 3 seater sofa), but that is expected there. Hardly the sought of thing you expect to see on a major freeway in Melbourne! I wonder if he may have also been a little over the limit following his Australia Day BBQ.
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!

What law did he break? At best operating a motor vehicle in a unsafe manner, would be the charge most likely.

Love the headline on http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/ ... 62,00.html "Two wheels, four burners ... just one snag"

I would have thought there would have been more than one law, unsafe and overloading come to mind immediately. I am sure there are more obscure laws that the general public might not be aware of as well.

I certainly would not like to be in his shoes when the police catch up with him.

A blatant disregard for a obscure law?how is that possible?I just went through the vic roads "Rules and responsibility's" booklet and there was no mention of load limits on motorbikes. I know the various state booklets are not the definitive end all and be all of road rules but it has been used in courts to prove sufficient for a general working knowledge of rules and regulations.

Who cares Will, there are no sheep stations riding on the outcome of either of our personal opinions.

Do you want to argue with everyone who expresses a comment that you don't agree with??

I personally believe the guy was breaking the law and behaving in a very foolish manner....hang me if Iam wrong.

With all due respect gypsylady I think your having a bit of trouble with the concept of of a discussion.(a)Just because I am disagreeing with you doesn't make it a argument, it is still a discussion.(b)In a discussion you argue a point not with the person.
So no I don't want to argue with everyone who expresses a comment that I don't agree with. What I want to do is discuss with anyone who has a opinion that I don't agree with.Which by the way is what in my view is a major part of a forum is about( to discuss and and share views).If I have the wrong view on what a forum is, maybe this isn't the place for me.

Do we really need a specific law saying that you must not carry a BBQ on a motorbike :? How about, you must operate your vehicle in a safe manner. The end. And from that picture, no one but a fool would argue that what he's done is safe.

Pretty sure there's no specific rule about me putting an elephant on my roof-racks, but it wouldn't be safe so I wont do it :mrgreen:

I once saw in Bali a whole family, Mum Dad and two kids on a moped and they were carrying an inflated airbed. ::() Maybe they are related? :***

I got sent an email with more pictures of this ratbag, in one pic I could clearly make out his number plate, so looks like his goose will be cooked or should I say BBQ'ed soon!
