I heard on today's 3AW news that Victoria Police will have motorcycle(s) with video cameras mounted. These motocycle(s) will be un-marked and plain clothes police will be on them. They will be up in the Yarra Ranges, which I think covers, King Lake, Reefton, Marysville, Blackspurs etc.

They are there to catch illegal riders and they don't give chase, they just radio the intercepters which will be hiding somewhere along the way.

Ride safe

just look out for bmw sport bikes, that is the current crop of unmarked bikes that they already have at there disposal (been pulled over twice by them and seen them up close)

wonder if there gonna hangout at reefton spur.. if they do it wont be long before riders know who they are.. if anyone see's or hears something this weekend at reefton.. feel free to let others know here.. ie bike there on, what they maybe wearing etc..

as the police on the unmarked BMW bikes, still wore there full police leathers and there police helmet

People there's this little hole in the law that states that entrapment regardless of who does it is illegal. This fact and the fact that police aren't allowed to chase you for more the 3 kilometers means a couple of things.

If an unmarked bike/car antagonises you into having a race - that is demed entrapment, thus illegal.

However, if the bike rolls up behind you and your already doing "Mach 1" you're toasted, cuz when the video shows up in court and you were approached by said officer after he clocked you breaking the speed limit by twice plus 35 - all the :rant in the world aint helpin' yiz.
