I was pulled up by a burgundy unmarked BMW bike just after the Burke road entry ramp this morning because I witnessed 2 bikes stopped in the emergency lane and was pulling over to render assistance, then noticed that they were saddling up so I then got back onto the road and went on my merry way. Then I look in the mirrors at blue and red flashing lights emanating from under the BMW which was one of the bikes that were stopped. Police person comes over and says that many complaints have been made about bikes using the emergency lanes on the freeway and said I was in the emergency lane. I smile at him and told him honestly that the reason I entered the lane was because of the 2 stopped bikes and was going to render assistance as is the riders creed about helping fellow riders then when i saw all was well I went on my merry way. He said that was fine and was writing it all down in his notepad after a quick license check. We had a conversation about the Burgundy bimmer and the little fairy lights that are bright blue and red and I asked him if he enjoyed ridng this bike which he said was a heap better and more fun than the big white marked bikes they usually ride. He bid me farewell and we went on our way. Goes to show not all police are arseholes and a little bit of honesty will get you a long way.
