The big pissing contest in Dayboro

I had a lovely visit from my brother and his mate Curley yesterday and after some chin wagging over a cuppa we decided to head on down to the big smoke, Dayboro, for a pie at the bakery where we found that the usually sleepy town experiencing a huge police presence.

We counted nine police bikes, six marked cars and a similar number of unmarked cars

No crime possible in Dayboro yesterday :)

The reason for this sideshow?

A group of aging bikies were having a club run and they had decided to try the tucker at the Dayboro pub for lunch!
where we were sitting at the Bakery we had ringside seats to the fun and games as scouts from the club did circuits up and down the roads to check out on the coppers and members of rival gangs checked them out as well.
Forgive me for thinking that the whole thing was just a little too much like a very big pissing contest.

Anyway that was our excitement yesterday
Cheers Comrades

    What a coincidence, Iain. On two levels:

    1. Here in Bright we often get groups of ‘ageing bikies’ too. They usually stop at The Alpine Hotel on their way up the mountains – and some of them don’t make it back.

    2. Tomorrow we have something called ‘The Alpine Valley’s Gourmet Day’ put on by the local wineries. It’s actually a giant piss-up in the park, by the river. In a huge marquee. Goes all day & night. And it’s always full … with locals. I’ll try to get down there and take some photos.

    I’m sure the pub did well out the visit as did the bakery as a steady stream of coppers bought their lunch. I reckon that most of the coppers thought that it was a lovely day out for a road trip.

    Those ‘ageing bikies’ riding around like sheep in big groups usually fall into one of two categories, Iain:

    1. Actual bikie gangs (like the Bandinos or Comacheros), that are fronts for organised crime and drug dealing (and making drugs!). I can’t understand why they’re just not banned and closed down.

    2. 50+ yearolds reliving their youth (or living the one they never had) by borrowing against the family home to buy a $25,000 Harley so they can pretend to be wild/free/a man (take your pick). Overgrown boys. Idiots on 2 wheels.

    My sister heard on the news that Dayboro was being taken over by bikies. Apparently it is a Hells Angels territory but it was trying to be taken over by another bikie gang… I live in Dayboro and havent heard anything about it being “bikie territory” think it is all crap . Probobly just makes a good news story :)

    They were apparently Gypsy Jokers rather than Hells angels Jo and welcome to the Sandpit ;)

    Dear Ray,
    I was one of those aging bikies that you don’t appear to like much. I hope that during my two nights at a local hotel, a visit to the food and wine festival and subsequent dinner at the Thai restaurant myself and my wife and eleven others didn’t inadvertantly support you. Coffee and cake at Omeo, lunch and drinks at Dinner Plain and a whole lot of Premium 98 was also purchased locally. I have been riding for 39 of my 58 years, and was meeting relatives and friends who rode down from Canberra to celebrate my brother-in-law’s 53rd. birthday with a ride in the mountains. From the look of it on the weekend, Bright and the local district were doing very well from people you think are idiots without any justification – just envy.

  7. Ray Dixon says:

    Good for you, Geoff, but Bright doesn’t need bikies to be doing well. Btw, I didn’t say that all ageing bikies were either gangs or drop kicks. This is what I said:

    “Those ‘ageing bikies’ …. usually fall into one of two categories”

    I stand by that.
