cops threaten to shut down chook chase kenilworth.
Sat morning the traffic squad turned up in force and laid down the ultimatum that any bikes riding on the road to the trail less than 1km down the road will be scrutinised.
fines and dmerit points will be issued and bikes have to be 100% roadworthy standard.
no flexability - rear reflector / number plate angle / chain guards and 2 mirrors etc and = 1 demerit point per infringment.
out of 300 bikes i only saw 2 that even came close to being roadworthy.
thank god they had a road bypass via neighbours property plan b and the forestry said it was a closed event and had to apply for an application -
its Just complete and total power trippingly insane what the cops were threatening to do - it could well have caused a riot - bloody arrogant iddiots - :cussing
Thankfully everyone came to an agreement and common sense prevailed - note the stupid thing is the event was organised and ratified by the local constable and has been going for 12 yrs - this is obviously another use of the VLAD laws to gather revenue and stamp out enjoyment of everyday dirtbike riders. crybaby2
So how long will it be before they come in force to beer or bellthorpe - its just sooo wrong. angry5

The ride itself was opened late but was awsome both days 60 km sat dusty + 90 km sun dusty - had a building site filter / paper mask on both days to limit sucking everyone roost dust - worked a treat! icon_salut
Coulda done without the traffic twats stressing everyone out laying down their draconian rules and a bit of rain would have gone down well but it all worked out in the end hello2 -
question is why did they decide to send 5 cops to enforce a private event and whats really going on???? icon_scratch

Its just the law.
A few years ago the rangers said you cant take your dirtbikes into Kennilworth outside this event but we still went in.
