  • Bring back the Police led social rides?

    Does anyone else remember the WAPOL social "blue light" rides from a few years ago? They were actually quite good fun, had a large turn out and an awesome bbq at the end. No one that I know was pinged for anything contraversial. I think I even saw Deej on his R1SP at one ride and the then Assistant Commissioner and now NT Commissioner John McRoberts was a frequent rider on his Hayabusa.

    If the cops put this on again, would anyone be interested in going along?

    I would love to take the mrs on one of these rides. I think it would be good practice for her to ride in groups without the Rossi wannabe's that crash (no pun intended) other learner rides.

    I think the rides were canned when the WAPOL got rid of their Honda's, but now that they have shiny new ones, can they start these back up again?

    Thoughts anyone?

        Why not?
        Being an Australian is not an excuse for being dumb and racist.

          As long as they dont sticker anyone, just friendly advice instead of pineapples would be nice

                They were in 2006 following the deaths of a few riders, one being my close friend. Karl organized them and was to create a better relationship between riders and police in general, and they seemed to work. I'd happily attend on my highly modified bike without fear of a yellow.

                  I'd be up for that.

                    I'd be up for it too. I think regarding mods as long as you're not really taking the piss they'd let it go with friendly advice...

                      And point out to them that most interactions between police and riders currently involve pineapples, justified or not. Would be "constructive" to meet on a less tense occasion.

                            Sounds like a trap to me.
