  1. Any one else see the Nine News report of the Police harassment at the Children's Hospital Fund raising ride? Were you as disgusted as me? Were you there, and can you shed more light on what occured?

    Maybe I'm missing something but it looked like blatent harassment on a whole new level.. A charity ride FFS is nothing sacred?

    It was reported that riders thought the Police had arrived to provide escort and assist, but the ride was instead blockaded, and every single bike and rider given the 10th degree.. What a fail.. 240+ bikes roadworthied, and all of 2 notices issued!

  2. this has already been posted in the "Fact or Fiction" thread, some hours ago.......
  3. so it was.. apologies!
