NO SOLO MIO

IN VICTORIA police solos began with country coppers doing their rounds on horseback. In 1929 Police Commissioner Blamey put the horses out to pasture and introduced new technology ... motorcycles.

After that police motorcyclists generally operated solo even in traffic in urban areas.

For decades the original Motorcycle Riders Association (MRA) then the Independent Riders Group (IRG) wrote to Victoria Police Commissioners calling for a policy change from solos to patrol pairs for officer safety and a change from big bikes to mid-sized machines that would be easier to operate and more cost effective.
