You can't read something like this and not learn something useful, it is a really well done publication:
Released yesterday in Canberra by Federal Transport Minister Albanesehttp://www.infrastructure.gov.au/roads/safety/publications/2009/good_gear_guide.aspx
The GGG provides information about gear that is available for sale and enables riders to make useful decisions and get value for money.
You might believe all the claims of advertisers, or check a few things before parting with your hard-earned.
I recommend that your club provide the above website link from your website or forum.
The Good Gear Guide is an initiative of the Motorcycle Safety Consultative Committee of the Federal Govt, on which the MCC of NSW sits alongside rider representatives from other States and Territories.
The MCC of NSW is a full member of the Australian Motorcycle Council, the national body of Australian rider groups.http://www.amc.asn.au/
As a member of the AMC, we applaud the Federal Govt for their funding of this project.
The GGG booklet is an extension of work commenced by the MCC of NSW in 2005 at the "Gearing Up" seminar http://roadsafety.mccofnsw.org.au/a/109.html
