Although entertaining to watch, its scary to know that these people are allowed to operate motorcycles on the street where their antics could easily hurt a bystander or worse, kill them.

2014 Honda CBR650F is powered by a 649cc engine, which develops maximum power of 85.8 Bhp at 11,000 rpm with maximum torque of 63.04 Nm at 8000 rpm.

Ben Church's insight:

On paper the cbr650f sounds fantastic for its performance, price and fuel economy. One gripe I do have with the bike is the styling and that the single headlight does not fit with the demographic its aimed at. As the bike was designed by young engineers its intended audience would then be concluded to be young riders and as a young rider I would of personally loved to see a bike that was beefier than a CBR500 but 1 step down from its 600 race replica but still maintaining the aggressive styling of the bike.

Maddi Cullen's curator insight, March 14, 4:37 AM

December of 2013, a builder suffered life changing injuries after falling approximately 3m off a scaffolding guardrail. This potentially life threatening accident was caused by a fellow worker loosening the scaffolding system in order to resolve a problem he had encountered. Construction workers must stop and think before putting themselves and other colleagues at risk by altering scaffolding on building sites.

Ben Church's insight:

All 3 bikes are wonderful for LAMs riders as they are all user friendly.
As an owner of the CBR500R I cant find much to fault with the bike but it has made my ability to swap from bike to bike rather difficult as the low down torque lets you get away with alot more than you should (Which is great for beginners). Also the low revving engine is unique in the sense it doesn't take much throttle to get up to speed but when it is fully opened the bike just flies!

The guards that  are attached to machinery are there so that they physically prevent you from interacting with the dangerous internals of the machine. Its quite appalling that due to negligence on the companies part, the worker has had to suffer permanent disfigurement.

Ben Church's insight:

After Mr Yakar expressed his concerns for opening the side of the truck he was issued with a hand operated pallet truck to move the stacked pallets to the back of the truck so that the forklift could take the pallet away. His concerns were quite reasonable and yet no action took place to make the situation safe. Also he should not of had to move the pallets to the back of the truck as forklifts can gain access to the side of a curtain truck without any difficulty.
