    Lane Filtering regulation update

    The President Jeff Thomas and Safety Officer Dave Wright from the Motorcycle Riders Association of WA held a productive meeting on Monday 8th January 2021 with the Road Safety Commissioner, Adrian Warner and Assistant Commissioner Paul Zanetti from the WA Police Force who has responsibility for the State Traffic Branch of Police, this followed a request for the meeting from the MRAWA and emails from many concerned motorcycle riders, regarding the proposed legislation changes to lane filtering in WA freeways.

    The Minister for Road Safety is sympathetic to the concerns we have raised on behalf of motorcycle riders regarding the restriction on lane filtering on freeways but given the upcoming general election, the Government is required to assume a ‘caretaker’ role, which limits the actions and decisions a government can take in this period. The Minister has asked the Road Safety Commission to prepare further options for consideration after the election result is clear and a new government has been formed.

    As a next step we are meeting with representatives from the Road Safety Commission and WA Police to discuss the new regulations in more detail, with a view to identifying the specific changes that we want presented to the Minister for Road Safety for consideration as soon as possible after the election.”

    Hi All


    A Reminder we will be having a Social Gathering for the club on Monday August 10th at The Victoria Park Hotel from 6:00PM onwards.


    No need for an excuse for a social evening - other than catching up and supporting the business that supports our club.


    Hope to see everyone there.

    Dear Members,

    As you must all know by now the Corona virus (COVID-19) presents a very real risk to our community. The government guidelines to reduce the spread and slow down the progress of the virus are evolving and updating daily. Who could have imagined how rapidly and dramatically this would impact daily life in Australia and worldwide?

    As our government moves to slow the pace of the virus down to try and prevent it overwhelming our health system, the committee of the BMWMCCWA has considered the rapidly escalating situation and decided that in the interests of its members, we should also make sensible changes to our approach to club activities, until such time as the threat has passed or our health system has developed the resources to successfully counter it.

    Therefore, from 18 March 2020 all club events and organised social gatherings will be suspended until further notice. Web services including the Facebook Group and Forum will continue as normal. Members can still meet and ride as they wish, but they should consider their friends and families and take sensible precautions.

    This includes:

    • Practising sensible social distancing, “no handshakes”
    • Wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face
    • Self-isolate if you suspect you have the virus or may have been exposed to the virus until such time as you have confirmed that you are clear.
    •   If you are exhibiting flu like symptoms such as coughing or sneezing avoid socialising until the symptoms have passed.
    For many of us the virus may not be life threatening or even severe, however for a significant number of our members by nature of their age or health or that of their immediate family the virus presents a significant threat. For this reason, we hope you understand and support these measures. Your committee will monitor the situation and revise and provide regular updates to you as circumstances change.

    Kind regards

    Thanks to all of you who donated to the Catalano's staff Christmas collection online and on Sunday the 22nd of December. With your generous help we raised just over $500 for Lulu and the girls. They were delighted and I think very deserving given the lengths they go to looking after our Sunday morning gatherings. As promised all donors had their names entered in the Christmas card. Well done all!
