Default SHPEEEEED KILLLLSSSSSs

So who was the lucky fucker who got caught doing double the speed limit when the roads were probably deserted the day after christmas.
Sorry for your misfortune dude..but...

Literally fish in a barrel.
Bank holidays, nothing else to do so the flash for cash and the hairdryers will be getting plenty of use. Guaranteed.

The question you need to ask is... are the lights in the mirror getting bigger, or smaller?
Got caught once clocking 85 (mph) near the Stag outside mallow by a stopped plod.(I didn't have a Deauville then, I had a flying teapot)
Considered for a moment not stopping but I was approaching a 30(mph) going uphill and all of a sudden there was a flashing headlight in each morror.

Indicator on, park bike, helmet off before they got out of the cage. Cop wrote down 70 on ticket he said because I stopped. Told me if you were caught doing more than 74 it was straight to court plus dangerous driving.
I got off with 50 fine. No such thing as points back then.
Choose your battles.

You mean his tax disk didn't fall to one side and partially obscure his barely legal numberplate?

You could take your chances not stopping and maybe not get caught, or you can take your chances and stop, and maybe not get done.... The choice is yours.

One cage was doing 120kph in a 50kph zone which is more than double the limit and arguably much more dangerous.

The bike was doing 198kph on a 100kph road which can be done safely but the media have an anti biker agenda.

Sure what more would you expect from gutter journalism.

They picked the biker because he was doing 200kmph (with rounding) and that is a good headline.

The average Joe cant comprehend doing 200. 120 in a 100 is not as dramatic.

If a cage was doing 200 that would be the headline too
