    Different rules for some

    Some posts in the past mentioned Police issuing tickets for riders taking their feet off the pedals while the bike/scooter is moving. Apparently that "law" doesn't apply to the Police themselves. Yesterday on the highway at West Gosford I saw a motorcyle cop riding with both feet hanging free, in heavy traffic at about 60-70 kph. This same officer would be quite happy to issue a ticket to anyone of us for the same infringement. No wonder there are a few people around who don't respect the law or the enforcers.

    Carpe Diem

    I can't see that happening.

    There's no offence for lifting your feet from the footpegs.

    I'm thinking it's an urban myth.

    We know that we are sitting ducks as far as the cops are concerned .

    It is probably safer for them to pick on a lone rider and after all most of us are breaking one law or another at some time  

    Further in country areas their pickings are fewer and a biker or scooterist is always going to get picked upon

    I was told last saturday that if you have a topbox on your scooter then there is less chance of them booking you --Dont ask me the reason because I find it as fascinating as you

    Cops are cops we love them when they help us and hate them when they book us

    Riding in a group of 6 today through Lizarow on the old Hghy our tail rider on a Yamaha Bee Wee was tailgated for some time by a motorist

    Pulling up at the lights the motorist pulled alongside our rider and gave him some lip about not going fast enough even though we were doing 60 in a 60 zone

    The motorist told our rider he could book him and pulled out his wallet showing he was a member of the police

    Or rider told him to bring it on in not too uncertain fashion  and the motorist then drove on

    Puts a dampener on the entire ride -there sure are some a----holes out there

    And had he been on duty he would have booked you for doing say. , 70 in that vone. 

    Wonder why there's not alot of respect  for the force.
