Adelaide | Motorcyclists want the State Government to legalise riding between lanes of traffic at slow speeds, claiming the practice would improve safety and reduce congestion on Adelaide roads.
But the RAA says legalising “lane filtering” would only reduce safety on the roads.
South Australian road rules do not explicitly prohibit the practise, but it is extremely difficult to perform without breaching several related road rules.
President of the Motorcycle Riders Association of South Australia, Phil McClelland, told InDaily the legalisation of lane filtering in New South Wales (in July last year) and Queensland (in January) showed the practice was safe.
“Lane filtering has been trialled and found to be successful, and has been implemented (in NSW and Queensland),” Full Story »

Easter buns and chocolate
InDaily has discovered an interesting take on hot cross buns made with fresh figs macerated in Muster Shiraz from the Barossa Valley.
Chefs Andy Thiele and Paul Gray produce a fresh batch each day at their Waymouth Street premises – Delicatessen Kitchen and Bar – and will continue making the “hearty” buns until Easter.
But some of the best sourdough fruit hot cross buns around Adelaide are being made by the Stirling Hotel Cellars and Patisserie each day up to and including the Easter weekend.
PHILIP WHITE OPINION | “Only Pinot and Neb, as reds, stand alone. And maybe Nerello Mascalese.”
So tweeted reviewer Gary Walsh of the wine-ranking website The Wine Front, a reviews compendium published by Campbell Mattinson since 2002. Campbell is also James Halliday’s editor.
Our discussion of my March 17 vintage report led to an interchange about where certain varieties grow best or worst, which led to blends which are necessary to hide mistakes. At which point Gary named the only three grape varieties he feels are good enough to release as straight varietals without being blended with other varieties: Pinot noir, Nebbiolo and Nerello Mascalese.
That’s a big claim to make in 140 characters.

AFL | UPDATED: ASADA says an appeal against the AFL anti-doping tribunal’s decision to clear 34 current and former Essendon players is a “very live option”.
Chief executive Ben McDevitt will make the call within 21 days, once the body has carefully scrutinised the tribunal’s findings which found there was insufficient evidence to prove an illegal substance was administered to the players.
McDevitt angrily hit back at claims ASADA had botched the investigation, saying he was incredibly proud of his team’s extraordinary work assembling a complex and comprehensive brief.
“Yes, we are. An appeal option is a very live option for ASADA,” he told reporters in Canberra.
