Cobram police have reported a quiet weekend in the local area, despite the presence of more than 115 bikers.

The Black Uhlans gang spent the night in Cobram on Friday, staying at various motels in town.

Acting Senior Sergeant David Arnold said police had had no issues with the gang.

‘‘When we heard they were coming through town, we thought it would be pertinent to increase police numbers,'' he said.

‘‘The gang members were very well behaved, we haven’t received any complaints from members of the public.’’

Extra officers were brought in from Melbourne, as well as different operational squads.

The Black Uhlans were stopped in Katamatite on Friday for mass licence and registration checks, as well as drug and alcohol testing.

Vine Leaf Cafe owner Carmel Eddy had about 30 members in for breakfast on Saturday, and said they were ‘‘very polite’’.

‘‘They were absolutely no trouble ... I’d have them back again at any time,’’ she said.

The Black Uhlans left Cobram around lunchtime on Saturday, and were believed to be heading to their clubhouse in Albury-Wodonga.
