Where exactly are we talking at Kangaroo Point?

Yes, true, the new sections are really good and I have to agree about the connection between the Bicentennial Bikeway and the Centennial Bikeway, I hate Sylvan Rd and is it Croydon St the turn to the Bicentennial? Hate that too out and inbound. It's the second day in a row that I get a car turning left from the right hand turn ONLY lane whilst the lights are green too.
It's not too bad though, honestly, I live 26.5km southwest of Brisbane and I'd say more than 80% of my trip is on good bikeways. Too bad the same infrastructure doesn't exist around other parts of Brisbane.
speed limits, anyone?
i might drive a ferrari, but i wouldn't do 301km/hr on the m1..
shared paths should be speed limited, and bike paths should be open, or is my sense too common for the pro minority?
still, if you were going to do 301km/h the m1 would be the road to do it on (though perhaps not in peak hour).
if they do speed limit shared paths, they'll no doubt make it 10km/h like it is on the bridges, despite the fact they're the widest bike/shared infrastructure in brisbane
There is a dichotomy between riding on the road and riding on the shared path. On the road you are at the mercy of cars, some of which drive too fast, and pass to closely. On a shared bike path, the roles are reversed. The bike can become the menace, riding too fast for conditions, and passing too closely. The old wisdom of "do unto others" seems lost on some people.

Strange... are the 'quoted' sections also being changed? If so, it means that the entire thread can be manipulated and conversations made meaningless. I'm pretty sure the moderators make obvious edits (with colour/font changes) so it must be the orginal author editing the post. Frankly, after a 15 minute editing window, the post should be locked.
My bike is heavier than your bike.
Mr Laager seems to have sat down and done that to all his posts. I guess that he would have deleted them if he had the option.
If you really want to see them they'll be archived on Google.
Maybe he woke up to fact that we are a bunch of fogies and went to hang with the cool crew.
Quoted sections don't change.
I think one should have the option of editing one's posts when ever one feels the need. There is an alert added to the post stating that it was edited and when.
judged, insulted, gone
I'd go on the kangaroo pt paths 1-2x a year. Save the effort for Samford, Scarborough, Nudgee Beach, Cleveland, Petrie, Two bridges, Lakeside, Nundah Crit, Coot-tha, Glorious.
I do 450k+ a week, and doubt the idiots that ride dangerously amongst pedestrians do enough k's on open roads to vent their testosterone.
