    At least there is no need to picket the House of Assembly over bigger bikes legislation. It is clear for all to see what needs to be done here. The craziness that these bikers do on the road, imagine the larger bikes. Not a pretty sight. 1. Tola roads not suited for large bikes 2. Most bikers have no self control or respect for the roads or other road users. 3. More noise nuisance. 4. It's not worth the few votes, seriously. You just can't please everyone as a politician and this is one of the cases, where the negatives far outweigh the positive and good sense needs to prevail.

    BVI is retarded and shortsighted in allowing these bikes on the road and now discussing larger bikes. Darwin’s theory in action. Well done BVI!
