Motorcyclists have compared the way the Queensland government's anti-bikie laws have impacted on innocent riders to the Nazi's treatment of the Jewish people.
The Queensland opposition has been handed a petition carrying the signatures of 10,000 people who are furious about the crackdown's impact on innocent riders.
Petition organiser and journalist Mark Hinchcliffe says ordinary motorcyclists with no links to bikies are being unreasonably targeted by police.
He says one woman was stopped three times on her sports bike on her way home, and was asked if she was a bikie and directed to reveal any tattoos she had.
"We are not political animals but we are getting angrier and angrier and angrier," he told reporters on Friday.
"Every day they keep making up new rules. Now they want us to ring them up when we are going for a ride.
"We are going to have to wear a Star of David on our chests next, it is just ridiculous."
Earlier this week, the government encouraged recreational groups to inform police when they were setting off on rides to avoid unnecessary police attention.
The petition urges the government to look again at the new bikie laws, which among other things ban criminal gang members from gathering in groups of three or more.
Opposition police spokesman Bill Byrne said it would be tabled at the earliest opportunity.
He conceded Labor MPs had voted for the laws, but said the Opposition had been forced to take the government at face value because of the speed the legislation went through parliament.
There was no opportunity to examine it in detail, he said.
"The government has not implemented this program as they stated they would in the chamber and I think that is a disgrace."
