Queensland Riders Need a Voice

When the Motorcycle Riders Association of Queensland (MRAQ) was wound up in 2020 a huge gap in representation at government, industry and community levels was left.

The Queensland Motorcycle Council has been formed to be the representative body for all motorcyclists and other powered two-wheel vehicle riders in Queensland.

The Queensland Motorcycle Council is your voice

The Queensland Motorcycle Council has been formed by passionate riders - just like you - and highly experienced industry figures to speak for you.

The aims of the Queensland Motorcycle Council are:

• to establish relationships with, and lobby to, all levels of government and industry on your behalf;

• to influence policies and regulations that affect the safety of riders;

• to work with other road user groups to promote the overall safety of all road users;

• to work with other road user groups to promote the benefits of motorcycles in our community;

• to educate government, motorcycle riders and other road users in the unique challenges riders face on our roads.

Our Methodology

• To provide a platform to establish relationships with, and lobby to, all levels of government and industry;

• To provide and promote links with the State Government and its instrumentalities, and local councils;

• To providee and promote links to third party bodies involved in road safety, including but not limited to research groups;

Tip 1
Proper chain maintenance has many benefits. Improved chain and sprocket life as well as handling and rider experience.
Tip 3
A quality chain lube should be applied to the inner side of the rollers while rotating the wheel. If you have a non "O" ring chain then extra should be applied along the side plates too.
Tip 2
Chain sag should be checked regularly with a rider on the bike and adjusted to the manufacturers tolerance. Too loose a chain can make gear changes feel notchy and too tight not only increases wear it can twist the rear under hard acceleration.
