Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang are currently travelling in convoy through South Australia.

Police monitor bikie gang 'run'

A number of members of the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang are currently travelling in convoy through South Australia.

Police say that Crime Gang Task Force members are managing the convoy over the next few days as it heads across the State.

'The Rebels are heading to their annual national 'run' which is scheduled to start in Mildura on Friday, 7 October 2011.

'It is believed several hundred members will be attending.

'Police have been closely monitoring the Rebels group.'

Police say that one member has been reported for speed dangerous while riding his bike approximately 10 kms west of Kimba in the State's mid-west.

'Police will allege the 50-year-old Rebels member from Western Australia was detected travelling at 191 kilometres per hour in a 110 kmph zone,' police said.

'The rider immediately lost his licence for six months and had his Harley Davidson impounded for 28 days,' Detective Inspector Steve Taylor from Crime Gangs Task Force said.

'This is a typical example of why SAPOL directs resources into managing large numbers of outlaw bikies on our roads.

'Unless we convoy manage and control them they have a complete and utter disregard for the law and other road users.'

Police have a number of contingencies in place in the event that some of the Rebels head to Adelaide after the national run.
