Curious police activities

Discussion in 'Australian Motorcycles' started by Julie and Deb, May 23, 2004.

  1. As expected, Mt Glorious yesterday had a bit of police presence. However,
    we knew they were there and where they were, so we were behaving ourselves.

    One thing that did make us sit up and take notice however - initially we
    thought it was a radar or lidar, but the cop was actually using a digital
    camera to take front on shots of us. Couple of guys at the cafe later
    mentioned that a while back the cops were there taking down the rego number
    of each bike parked out the front.

    Wonder what's happening and what they're up to?

    Only thing I can think of as to why they would be doing that is to
    try catching any unregistered bikes.

    If they get speed camera photos that arent clear, they could use this
    shit to ping you.

    Id tell them to piss off if they were taking photos of my bike at a
    cafe etc.

    Unfortunately, since it is a public place, they (as are any public) are free
    to take any pictures they choose, so they would then tell you to piss off.

    Probably trying to demonstrate that it is not possible to identify a
    motorcycle from the front unless it has a number plate. Why else would they
    be taking front-on shots that wouldnt give any identification.

    Could be they were looking for stolen bikes. Word has gotten around that I
    have a hot Ninja and they obviously misunderstood. :p

  9. Japan, Biggus. Ninjas are a Japanese thing...

    (wanders off contemplating the likelihood of specifying "ninja" as the act
    when arranging a stripper for a buck's night...)

    Ahhhhhhhhh the fictional copper spook.. Well in that case I'd hang my
    arse across the # plate, and give the finger.

    Baileyana Embroidery is of the opinion:
    Dodgy as in...? If they're only looking for unreg'd bikes, they don't need
    to be taking photos. If you mean that they were trying to catch bikes with
    speed-camera-rooting coverings, then you may well be right, since (from hazy
    memory) regular digital cameras have similar problems to speed camera
    digital cameras.

  13. (Steps outside)
    (looks at bike's ducktail.... "N"-"i"-"n"-"j"-"a")
    (trots round to the other side, just to be thorough... "N"-'i"-"n"...)
    (somewhat alarmed, runs around carpark, checking where the steering wheels
    are on all the parked cars; right, all of them. What the hell is going
    on!?!)

    And you think they need photographic evidence to demonstrate that a bike
    without a front number plate has no number plate on the front?

  17. With respect, Nev, since I didn't run into you when I was Melbourne this
    past weekend, it could be entirely possible that you're actually in the
    US... hear anyone say "y'all" recently?

    I am presuming that you're not calling the ZX6R american, you're referring
    to some yank phenomena or character?

  20. I suspect he's referring to the American quaintness of calling just
    about _every_ Kawasaki a "Ninja"...

    As well as the ZX6, ZX9 and ZX12, I've also seen in the states a "ZX6E
    Ninja" which was what we know as a ZZR600, and the "Ninja 250" which we
    call a ZZR250.

    It wouldn't surprise me too much to see a "Vulcan 1600 Ninja" or a
    "KDX250 Ninja" over there as well...

    big (seen that High-speed car ferry "Kawasaki Jet Piercer Ninja"?)
