Deputy Commissioner Scott Tilyard said about 20 “Foolish Few” members arrived in Devonport on the Spirit of Tasmania ferry.

Deputy Commissioner Tilyard said no arrests were made. 

A large contingent of Outlaws Motorcycle Club members and the Foolish Few members rode in a convoy on the Bass Highway between Burnie and Devonport. The mass of bikies was an intimidating sight and sound as the bikies rode several abreast at times.

“The community can be assured that police will not tolerate criminal or anti-social behaviour and the activities of the OMCG members while they are in our state will be monitored and police will respond to any issues that may arise,” Deputy Commissioner Tilyard said. He rejected speculation the Bandidos had established a clubhouse at Shearwater, or anywhere else in Tasmania.
