Hey guys, So, some of the worst luck in history struck me last night, and a mate of mine as we were wrapping up our cruise for the evening. Upton St in Bundall, near the good guys, we pull up on our little 250's and the conversation goes as following: "You off?" "Yeah, gunna head home" "Orrite mate, catchya later" We both take off, in the same direction, and we kinda basically just raced to see who could beat the other... no plans, no organization, we just did it because we were both there and it was half past midnight and the road was dead, black and straight. So, I get to the other end near the roundabout and my barend drops off (the cap on the end of the throttle) which I just replaced. I stop my mate, tell him, and we go back to look. Found it, found the bolt to hold it on, and we go to take off. His bike stalls, I get off to push start him, then all of a sudden we're surrounded by cops. After a painfully ideallist speech about "What gives YOU the RIGHT!" which just went on and on and on, they decided to confiscate the bikes under the "Hoon Act" which is laughable because that's the first "Hoon" thing we did all night. The "deadly" danger they cited was "What about the taxi's and limo's pulling in and out of the brothel over there". I actually scoffed at the cops, because they were booking us for "tearing up the road" when there was a completely morally deplorable and disgusting business running (in a semi-residential area) just down the road... albeit legally. I mean, since when was prostitution legal? Anyway, turns out there were two security guards in QLD Transport that dobbed on us, they came out and gave their version of events which (surprise) actually matched ours. We admitted we did wrong, pointed out that there were MUCH worse places we could have been doing it (Broady carpark for one... i'm so pissed off that I got caught on a back road in the dead of night when all the shitheap commonwhores at the broady can seemingly get away with doing big assed peelouts out the driveway weekend after weekend) and then they sent us on our way, on foot. We get the bikes back in 48 hours, and a court date set for a time in the future to plead our case. I just hope we get an understanding magistrate. And to all those "OMFG YOU SO DESERVE IT" people who are no doubt going to post here, I'm going to offer you this pre-emptive "bugger off" because you know you've done something as meagre in the past, you just didn't get caught. Anyway, just wanted to share, and vent really. Peace out!
