Our Friday Action Nights (FAN) kick off again on March.
Barry Schreiner has organised a night ride from the MECGC Clubrooms to the Heritage Hideaway Cafe, 362 Tallebudgera
A Highway Patrolman waited outside a popular biker bar, hoping for a bust. At closing time everyone come out and he spotted his potential quarry. The man was so obviously inebriated that he could barely walk. He stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes, looking for his motorcycle. After trying his keys on five other bikes, he finally found his own bike. He sat on his motorcycle in a good ten minutes, as the other patrons left. He turned his lights on, then off, and again on and off. He started his engine and pull forward into the grass, then stopped. Finally, he pulled out onto the road and started to drive away. The patrolman, waiting for this, turned on his lights and pulled the man over. He administered the breathalyzer test, and to his great surprise, the man blew a 0.00. The patrolman was dumbfounded. “This equipment must be broken!” he exclaimed. “I doubt it,” said the man, “You see, tonight I am the designated decoy… I haven’t had a drink all day!”
For those new to the club and group riding, take a few minutes to watch this video about riding in groups from Join the Drive by Mick Doohan
Although this video was first released in 2015, it’s worth watching again as a reminder of how much of our body hits the ground in a crash.
Feel sorry for the unfortunate stunt rider!
