How soft are our bikies?

johnboy 26 March 2009 147

There’s a lot of talk about the bikie threat at the moment.

Media, Government, and the Outlaw Motor Cycle Gangs all have their own interests in talking up the menace.

Which seems to miss the point that in Tuesday’s excitement it was the bikies who wound up dead.

(Bear in mind in the Downer murders it was the bikie associated Struan Bolas who went down as well.)

As far as we can tell, and without in any way pre-empting the trial, two older bikers Richard Roberts and Gregory Carrigan, aged 57 and 48, went to the house of the young Russell Field (aged 20) to cause trouble and are now in the morgue. In many an action movie one could imagine Russell Field as the hero of the piece.

Rather than anti-biker laws do we need to declare them a protected species? Or do we need a second gang in town to harden them up with some competition?

You think Harley’s are loud?

They’ve got nothing on the high pitched squealing of a dirt bike.

I find Harley’s to be quite an appealing and mellow sound actually.

Agreed. Also, whilst I always check my mirrors, I prefer to hear the bike coming, so I know to give him/her distance when Im driving.

29/12/2012 Ha ha! had to laugh about the head of the Rebels bikie gang, Alex Vella getting on TV a couple of weeks ago, saying that they aren’t doing any criminal activities, what a joke, they were the one’s who threatened and harassed a business in Mitchell, that they wanted it, without paying for the business, they are a bunch of speed, and Marijuana dealers etc. Very comical.

I know this is something of an old thread, but is anyone else intrigued about the link between ACT government investments and bikies?

Bloody time machine is playing up again, to be expected with newbie technology I suppose.

“A suggestion maybe JB could have a face to face meeting with the bikkis and see how soft he thinks they are, they would be great feedback for us that log on this site JB. “

Here’s a stock standard ‘I bet you wouldn’t say it to their faces, nyah, nyah’.

Here’s one for you. They are soft and I have said the above to them when the response was appropriate. I had one of their ‘hard’ men scream at me as he rode past me on my bike (push bike that is). When I stopped next to him at an intersection I looked at him. He screamed the old chestnut ‘what the f…k are you looking at?’.

I stopped, got off my bike, propped it against the gutter and gently responded ‘I’m looking at someone who’s about to be humiliated on a public street by a man in lycra, who’s probaly marginally larger than he looked when you screamed at him for no apparent reason a short time ago’.

The facial expression change from faux rage to fear and panic was priceless, as was his haste in dropping the clutch and flying away as soon as the lights changed.

“As far as we can tell, and without in any way pre-empting the trial, two older bikers Richard Roberts and Gregory Carrigan” – Greg Carrigan wasn’t a bikie. His connection to Rick Roberts had nothing to do with bikes or bikie gangs.

I lived in Asia and we all look the same to them also, after awhile you learn to tell the difference

I can tell you that if bikies want your business you will be hounded, I know as I worked for a business, the harassment went on for two years, and guess what, they didn’t get the business ha ha, little men on their own

One of the bikers used to have his own column and also helped street kids.

I used to work with some bikers at a newspaper in Parramatta (Cumberland Newspapers), they are the ones that give their time for charity, not the bikies, there is a big difference between them.

Ivan Milat wasnt a bikkie, nor were that Anita Coby murderres so why is it only in the ACT if a murder occurs it is directed at the underworld or bikkis?

Could it be that some Canberrians are being small minded, one would consider instead of individuals looking to have a stigma attached to certain people how about working together as a community to make Canberra a better place? There is good and bad in all places, groups, races and religions.

JB – Here you go again with the Downer murders I noticed. The Bolas was a ex bikki but the presumably murderer wasn’t nor was the deceased female so lets not start a new thread with more rumours, leave that one to the upcoming committal hearing.

Personally I’ve always been partial to scotch fingers (doubly so when attached to scottish lasses).

But a couple of quick points in reply:

1) We’re actually in agreement. I’m trying to point out here that the bikies have been the victims in these incidents/

2) There’s only one of me. How many “bikkis” need to be in the room to make their point?

I”m surprised no-one mentions that a significant segment of “bikie” (”biker”?) culture is alienated Vietnam Vets

As an ex member of the Patriots MC (ex services) and the Combat Vets MC, I used to ride with the VVMC.

These are people with normal jobs and (reasonably) normal lives. They just happened to fignt in a war in a faraway country some 30 odd years ago. They are in no way anything like the rebels, Gypsy Jokers, Commancheros, Angles, etc etc.

Besides, your average VV is now well over 60. At least my dad is 😉

Luke79 Yes bikies can be nice, if you haven’t got what they want and they aren’t wearing their patches
