I just got back from my clubs annual 4 day ride to the High Country. We have been doing this for 10 years and have had a great run with very few incidents, not this time though. There was 6 of us on this trip, most on Historic rego. In NSW there is in the last 6 weeks been a change to test out the log book system where if you like you can go the log book way or continue with the original system of ANY designated club run your club is affiliated to ANY destination in Australia.That's the way 5 of us are situated with 1 going the log book way. So we are leaving Omeo and get the cops up ahead sigh from a passing rider and obviously continue at the speed limit. About 20 ks later an Obviously unmarked orange car comes past the other way and flashes his lights as he passes and does a U turn and pulls us up. He gets out as says to his mate as he walks down the line,first ones ok, bike 3 is supposedly doing 121 and according to him bike 2 and 4 were close by and doing the same even though we were all together and traveling at the same speed . There was zero chance of talking him out of this, he was virtually wetting his pants in gly. And then another unmarked car arrived and this bloke starts up with the historic rego stuff. Where are our log books. According to this charmer we must comply with any Victorian legal requirements on his side of the border.According to him it didn't matter what was legal in NSW if we were south of the border it must comply with Victorian law, seems we are not a FEDERATION these days So a heated discussion ensues and it got heated because this charmer took ANY discussion as disputing his authority. He finally agreed to let it slide this time,it seems we need to carry a document on an official club letterhead stating all the facts of the ride or we can be fined for riding unregistered and not allowed to proceed on these unregistered bikes even though this ride is documented up the wazoo in multiple places and with the club officials and has been for many years..And then he got real excited about the cylindrical rego label holder on one of the bikes,historic rego still requires rego labels and these cylindrical type ones are ULEGAL. He got IRATE at this and threatened to send that bikes owner an unregistered riding fine in the mail.All of this was extreme nit picking and completely unnecessary,and smacked of doing anything to make it difficult to ride bikes on these roads. So by this stage we had 2 cars and 4 cops at the scene, 3 of us got speeding fines at 112 in a 100 zone and that's when the lectures started. One went into this tedious speech starting with I have been on this road for 28 years and ITS A DEATH TRAP. Funny thing is I have owned this bike for 28 years as well. All of the blokes on this trip have multiple decades of riding experience and don't need finger waging by moronic ZEALOTS like this bunch.And the final irony is 3 of these cops rode bikes. This whole experience was a complete joke,none of us got breath tested,none of the bikes got safty tested , it was all about the fines and grand standing in front of a captive audience. My respect for the Victorian Highway Patrol went down one hell of a lot. Earlier that day at The Blue Duck on a brake from the best road in OZ The Mita Mita Rd we had a chat with the local general duties bloke who was a credit to his job. Not this bunch of Ned Kelly wantabys. So in summary we were NOT speeding, we were lawfully registered, we were all experienced riders over 50 wearing all the gear on holidays spending up big in country towns and we were TARGETED harassed and fined all in the name of road safety.
