I used to fantasize about going Down Under on a motorcycle vacation.
Australia and most specifically Queensland, are on the bottom of my bucket list nowadays.
I'd still love to experience the country, but the more I look into the policing situation there, the more I know it will be many years, if ever, that I go there.
In following this situation and researching all kinds of video, it appears to me that this country really needs a charter of freedoms and rights and that the police services in Australia have a real problem. They are not only harassing motorcyclists. Just go to YouTube and do a search - you'll find stuff there that will curl your hair. (Assuming you have any to curl)
Watch the video below and then tell me how you would feel about the number of police officers who stopped this guy. His plate and information taken down by two officers - separately.
What are your thoughts on this video?
Riders stopped for being in a funeral cortege - and they called in before hand.

Queensland Australia and all of Australia for that matter - now officially on the bottom of this rider's bucket list - how about yours?
Would you ride in Australia?
