Bandidos ride into town

THE Bandidos bikie gang will visit their Sunshine clubhouse tonight for a strip show and heavy boozing after their blazing run into Melbourne's CBD yesterday.

Bikies in leather jackets and full colours took over the roads, blocking the Princes Freeway under a police escort.

Eight motorcycles, two four-wheel drives, one unmarked car and the police helicopter were among the resources poured into the VIP escort.

The Herald Sun yesterday revealed police anger at having to clear a path for the gang.
Police Association legal manager Sen-Sgt Greg Davies said the bikies weren't saints.

"They haven't come to town for a cup of tea and an Iced Vo Vo," he said.
He urged those partying in the city over the warm weekend to keep a cool head.

"Taking on one or more of these people is not the way to make a name for yourself.

"It is bound to end in tears. Leave that to the police."
"This is purportedly a family event and they are not looking for trouble from police, and they won't be actively visible around the city other than the functions they are going to have," he said.

"If they breach in the first minute they know we will take a different course."
