Did anyone get stopped up there today. As i was rolling into Healesville there was an illumniated billboard just before after the supermarket advertising a "Motorcycle Safety Event 9am-2pm". Sure enough as i round the bend to get to the bakery, there are cops everywhere, 5 squad cars, pig bikes and a few tents set up. Every bike that went past was herded into the car park and had their details recorded such as Age, Bike capacity, casual or frequent rider, casual or frequent in the yarra ranges, number of crashes, what licence type and post code. Im fairly sure the survey was being conducted by HART, i just had to laugh though at how they needed 25 police offices to ensure we all gave our information, instead of it being voluntary. As i was leaving, i was harassed by 3 bike cops at the fact i didn't have gloves on (i lost them 3 weeks ago, don't have the money atm to get more). I told them this, despite having all my other gear on they stood there and responded with "they're the easiest piece of gear to put on", and "i don't care if you lost 'em mate, buy some more or lose a finger". So basically their attempt at gaining intel for the summer has made me despise the pigs up in the Yarra Ranges even more than i did beforehand.
