What ride was happening today???

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Whitey, Sep 17, 2010.

  1. On my way into the city this morning I noticed about 20-30 bikes heading outbound on the Monash. They were being followed by 2 marked police bikes & another police 4wd. Almost looked like an escorted ride for some reason. Either that or the police were trying for their quota in one hit. :-k

  2. Depends what colours they were wearing. Did you check overhead for the PolAir helicopter? :demon:
  3. There's a police ride to Canberra commemerating cops who have been killed in the line of duty. they are going up the coast. Brian Rix from the Police Association was talking about it with Red Symons on 774ABC this morning.

    Red made the comment about who'd want to go the long way through the mountains when you can just go up the Hume - Brian's reply was "motorcyclists" :)

  4. I witnessed this today aswell at about 8:10am
    outbound on the monash, a long trail of bikes in the rhs lane with cop bike at the tail.
    Very interesting to see.

    And what was with the traffic today on the Monash. Way more banked up than usual. Had to split pretty much the whole way.
  5. You and every other rider split past while I was stuck in the car. Apparently there were roadworks that went over time up the city end which pretty much screwed everything up. Also the usual accidents that tend to happen.
