    they are a 1% club

    i could understand if it was a relatively new relationship, but if they've been doing these runs and supporting this charity for 20 years as the letter says - it's pretty poor form

    poor form indeed spose cops will feel threatened with a mass ride regardless that  its for charity, I just feel that the demonstration of a caring social input should count for something

    its a shit action by the cops, ive been on a couple of their rides and events when i lived in the hunter and they are a decent bunch of blokes, this is just another dumb ass idea to stop bike clubs looking good in the eyes of joe public and a disaster for charities that rely on these types of rides as the government does fuck all for them :(

    if an organisation of any kind is registered as a charity or doing charity , its for taxation reasons .
    cops probably trying to upset their financial charity status , get them deregistered .
    theres a Trust some where amoungst it all

    If the letter is genuine and there's nothing to suggest it isn't. The letter context and bit of the content about volunteers doesn't even make sense. I guess the charity could have responded to the police threats with an "or what?" but they chose not too.
    A little bit of feel good stuff, doesn't make the majority of OMC's or other criminal groups any less, well "criminal"

    pretty much my experience and thoughts about some of the 1% groups I have met and the involvement of a fair number of their members in charity rides

    There's a million and one social clubs out there now, well in WA anyway (facebook anyone?), maybe they can pick up the slack

    Very sad 
    The kids in need don't care if the $ they require is sourced from Gladiators or Jesuit priests.The government's desire to appear "clean" to appease the whingers should be irrelevant to the focus of giving the required financial help.I suppose I'm stating the bleeding obvious?
    look at the little kid's face on the advert? heartbreaking image.To use the analogy,wild animals in bushfires or floods will stop trying to eat each other as they face a bigger issue.Wild animals can do it but police can't.I say again, look at the little kid's face ,20 years of support down the tube for preserving a bureaucratic political image.
