      My dog has a micro-chip, if we lose him the vet can scan him and find out where we live.

        as in Data dot for theft purposes...or is this a Dorkington idea (viz. GPS tracking....distance vs time = Speeding infraction)

                If it's to keep track of bikes whereabouts and speeds then I would remove it. I'm sure that within a few weeks there would be lots of websites explaining how to remove the chip (weight reduction for a track bike of course), even if it was like an immobiliser if removed, there would be a way to avoid it.

                In terms of security devices, I would do it if I had the money/a bike worth stealing such as, oh I don't know, a Desmosedici.

                  I dont know exactly, I had hoped you guys would know.

                  I am assuming similar to dog micro chipping whereby your bike can be scanned to see who the registered owner is for the concern of theft naturally.

                  And then unnaturally to be able to check your record, license, movements, speed, and other things which will likely be their hidden agenda.

                  Maybe im just a skeptic

                    I reckon if the chips come out, someone will find a way to get around them/kill them and then they will become defunct.

                      Assuming this is a "road safety" directed item I hate it as it is an infringement of human rights. Lets just all have a chip in our head and do whatever big brother directs us t....?

                      I think it is a great idea and the sooner we are all under constant surveillance the better so the people that care about us and know whats best for us can watch over us with equity and fairness. Big Brother FTW.

                        If you're talking data dot then I'm all for it. Microscopic "tags" glued to various panels and parts of your bike to prevent "stripping" of stolen vehicles and selling of the bits.
                        AFAIK you can't do it from a distance i.e. from a scanner/camera on an overpass. You physically have to get close to the data dots to identify them.

                          OK, I HAVE MORE DETAIL NOW:

                          Basically Channel 10 have made contact because they are planning on running a news item tonight about the microchipping of motorcycle number plates whereby the State Govt are proposing to place a microchip on our bikes that can be detected by speed cameras so that they don’t have the identification issues currently being experienced as a result of the lack of front numberplates.

                          So what are your thoughts on it?

                          No doubt they will be interested to read the thread so level headed comments appreciated.

                            How is this any different to the numberplate scanning camera system they already use?

                              Go for it. If it acts as a deterrent as much as the cameras do for cars then I'm all for it, but cut the BS about cameras being for safety because all they do is whinge about the lost revenue, not the fact that all the bikes that speed through cameras then go on to kill mum's with kids in prams.

                              PS - Should be easy enough to 'block' the signal somehow. If you can build it, it can be hacked!
