Tasmania Police to support law abiding motorcycle groups

 Tasmania Police will continue to support MRA events and other events organised law-abiding motorcycle clubs as we always have, Assistant Commissioner Glenn Frame said today.


“There will be no change to our support for law abiding motorcycle groups,” Assistant Commissioner Frame said.


“The only change in the future will be for members of a proscribed outlaw motorcycle gang.  Those individuals will be banned from wearing colours in public places. If a rider wears the colours of a proscribed group to an event, it is the individual who commits the offence, not the event organiser.


“The new laws are targeting criminal motorcycle gangs. Clubs like the Motorcycle Riders Association, Tasmanian Motorcycle Council, Harley Owners Group, Ulysses Club, God Squad and Vietnam Veterans etc won’t be affected.


“Tasmania Police has and will always support motor cycle riders.”
