If your pushing a motorbike surely its a "push bike" :twisted:

At which point you can push it on footpaths etc etc and into pushbike parking etc :thumb: :angel12:

Obviously as soon as you start using the motor for propulsion it becomes a motor vehicle...

Its quite self explanatory.. if you are pushing the bike then no helmet required.

if you are walking beside the bike (holding it upright) and the engine is on and turning the back wheel (a rather risky action). then you must wear a helmet.

I'm not sure under what circumstances that would happen... but. life is full of extremely odd occurrences.

Yeah, it is very clear from the excerpt. :thumb:
