    On the M2 East and West there are signs [no motorcycles]
    this however can be ignored at your own risk .

    if you get a fine , do not blame Think bike . we cannot tell you where or how to ride ur bike

    i personally do not know why we cannot use this specific strech on the M2 . they claim it has to do with the bridge joints that will cause an accident when a motocycle's tyres get stuck in them.. but these days the 250cc's have as big a tyre as most compact cars .

    one day the roads directorite will remove those sign , but for now unless u have to use that strech , rather go off and join the M2 where it is allowed .

    Default Riding on M1 and M2

    Thanks for the opinions. Bottom line appears to be at your own risk.

    There are signs at some entry points but not all, some are; no bikes past Joe Slovo on M2 West; no bikes onto M2 Heidelburg. At the Selby on ramp to M1, no bikes under 125cc are allowed.

    this thread needs to be revived please .

    my take on numberplates , use the correct size or face the consequences
    in Alberton they impound , in Jhb you get a fine
    apparently you can get arrested as well for this

    What is the law in terms of using "pispot" helmets? Are they legal?

    Not trying to argue a fatal point, but how does a person interpret the words "provied that" in this context?

    It seems that you can have a strobe that doesn't flash as long as ambulances, etc. can flash theirs?

    I ride the M1 and M2 daily. There is a "NO BIKES" sign, but it clearly shows no bikes 125cc and under.
    Shyt happens, get over it

    Remember that the National Road Safety Act allows for municipalities to make regulations specific to roads in their jurisdiction. Basically the National Road Traffic Act allows for bikes bigger than 125cc on freeways, or motorways if you want to call them that. However, the JHB Municipality has a bylaw that prohibits all bikes from a certain part of the M2 East.
