Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads data show the region is home to 5428 motorbikes and Japanese badges rule the road. Honda is the most common brand, with 877 on our streets.
Harley-Davidson sits at number two with 828, but Japanese manufacturers fill out the top five with 793 Yamahas, 675 Suzukis and 535 Kawasakis. Motorcycle Riders Association of Queensland president Chris Mearns said the experience of riding a motorbike was like no other.
The Motorcycle Riders' Association of Queensland Inc.(MRAQ)is the official voice of Queensland's road riding motorcycles, off-road motorcycles, scooters and trikes communities. With more than 186,193 motorcycles and scooters now registered in Queensland, it is imperative that these people are being properly considered as a legitimate part of the transport mix.
The MRAQ's primary role is to convey the road safety concerns and suggestions of the road/offroad motorcycles, scooter, trikes riding community to relevant government bodies and work with them to achieve the goal of improving motorcycle, scooter and trike safety. It also provides information from its work back to the riding community in order to facilitate the achievement of its objectives. The MRAQ has been representing Queensland motorcycle and scooter riders at the highest levels since 1982.
The MRAQ's objectives are to:
- Promote road safety
- Promote a better image for motorcycling
- Work for fair and sensible legislation on behalf of all motorcyle enthusiasts
- Participate in charitable and community service activities
MRAQ supports responsible, safe, yet enjoyable riding practices, and encourages on/off road motorcycle, trike and scooter riders to participate in advanced rider training and track days to safely develop their skills and experience safely in a non-public road environment.
