One interesting part of the Batemans Bay Girls ride was the nice Cop in town when we were leaving. He came up and was very happy to see 5 girls on nice bikes having fun. He was actually dressed in civvies, but introduced himself as the local motorcycle cop in town, his words were " Hi, Im off duty today and the rest of the boys are busy at Narooma with a house being moved across the bridge so, wer'e not on patrol today, also, we dont have any unmarked police cars here either. Have a good ride girls, just watch the gravel from the roadworks! " I nearly fainted. In my entire life, no one has ever forewarned me that the coast is clear to have fun. The road we were going on is "the Kings" highway and its incredible. Big sweeepers with about 15 kms of Arthurs Seat style stuff thrown in. A few of the more suspicious ones amongst us thought it was a trap, but , no, it wasnt. He told us he rides sports bikes on that road whenever hes off duty. Top bloke! Only visitor I had on that road was a roo going about his business.
