Sounds like an abuse of power by the Sussex Police and the new seizing laws, surely pulling the whole group to the side of the road and having a word with them would of sufficed. It would also have saved the tax payer a large sum of money over the amount seizing the bikes and taking the riders to court has cost. Were they harming anyone? Without the police's side of the story (a video from the unmarked bike) I hasten to believe that it's just a copper trying to justify his unmarked bike.
Here is a post concerning the group taken from another discussion:

F.O. with that abuse of police power crap. The 11 tossers in question are 11 of the dumbest cunts to ever mount bikes. People like them only further the nasty misconceptions the public already have about motorcyclists. Here is a post concerning the group taken from another discussion: I know this group of people who got nicked, as already said all bikes returned bar one which is to be crushed as I was told. Some of the bike had flip up plates so the old bill are doing them for that as well as wheelie, rolling burn out and other things. They went to the same area at around the same time each week, no wonder they got caught It seems a bit late to be posting this for discussion as we have spent the past two days on the subject.
Without reading the forum discussion mentioned above, there's only half a story here.
FFS, who do you think you are, MCN?
All i can say unless you know any of the people involved i would keep your kind words to your self.
i have been out with most of the riders and i can tell you that they make a ride out worth while. what gets me is that the police are using unmarked bikes.
i also know other people who have been nicked by the unmarked fireblade and all i can say is it is a form of intrapment

I am the woman out of the 11 bikers that were pulled over on the A24. I do not appreciate being called a dumb cunt as you do not know the full story,99% of all road users, car and cyclists break the law every day they go out, doing 35/40mph (which is what most people do) in a 30mph road and that is breaking the law and we all do it. The cyclist that goes through the red light is breaking the law and I see god knows how many every day, the difference is that the police are not sitting at the road side waiting for them. Who is more likely to knock someone down,those people in the built up areas in rush hour traffic, or me on an open dual carriageway on a sunday. For your information, we were on a open dual carriageway, not a town centre or built up area and we are all out and about, the majority of us without charge.
Riding is one of the few things in life I cherish. For me it’s almost a religion. Stupid acts like those of you and your group place all of us bikers at risk of even greater regulation. Mind you, motorcycles make up less than 1% of the motoring population. Just look at how difficult it is to get a full license these days.
You obviously know me
i have no remorse because i have done nothing wrong, i did not break any laws. this is obviously where you have been listening to gossip when actually you know nothing. yes when im riding with other people who may be doing wrong i expect to be pulled over, i've got no problem with that at all, but when people like label others and call them "dumb cunts" this i do have a problem with. you must have your head stuck so far up your own arse, the smell must be clouding your judgement. As far as people witnessing my behaviour, they did, and thats why i got released with NFA from the police.
The only F'in Moron is the one that has to use swear words as he obviously cant speak or understand the english language. I dont go to any of your local haunts as you put it (except boxhill) i just ride. Now i'll ask you again, unless your all mouth and no trousers, to make your self known to me.
On my way home today I did 143mph on the M62, I also knocked two bikers off. I'm fine with what I did, as a lot of other people were going over 70mph and there were also a few other road accidents, so I only did what everyone else was doing. I wouldn't do this on a normal road though, because that would be wrong.
Of course I'm quite lucky, in that I view it that laws don't apply to me so I can act like a cock with impunity. I also have insurance and road tax, so this gives me free reign to do whatever I like and see the road as my own personal race track.
Of course I only do it on roads that I know, but that's quite easy as I only ever drive on the same 10 mile stretch most of it straight as an arrow, so that I don't really need much skill, just a lot of luck.
viewng the above messages you all should be completly ashamed of yourself. being a biker myself, i always thought that bikers watched each others backs who ever we are, yet you lot are a bunch of children arguing over petty matters. what ever happens police will always know due to snitches, so people enjoying themself of acting stupid dont add to anything. the matter with 11 bikers is up to them, they do what they do and they get the consequences, not any of the rest of us so we shouldn't care.
so stop bitching at each other and get on with your own lives
A full on rant.
I knew you'd want to have the last word, so you up for boxhill meet on Sunday or what?
Hmmm let me think, should I travel hundreds of miles to a congested SE, where I get to ride on such interesting roads as a "wide open dual carriageway", or stick with the joys of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.
Tough one that
