As a decent law abiding motorcyclist turning up at a pub on my 250 Honda I
strongly suspect I'll get a lot less grief from an over zealous bouncer than
I would at a pub full of inebriated 1%ers.
As for banning "certain colours" if it looks like a duck & quacks like a
duck...then expect to get shot at!

Mmm but also the flip side applies, the publican can't choose to allow
