Rules of the road

I just came back from Germany, whilst there I read an article on speeding in Switzerland.
Rider 100KMPH thru an 50KMPH zone
Loss of license,
hefty fine and facing 1-4 years in JAIL.
In some swiss areas motorcycling is prohibited because of excessive speeding accidents and deaths.

In British Columbia, 40 KMPH will result in siezure of vehicle on the spot..

Know the rules of the road where ever you travel, ignorance is not an excuse.

Re: Rules of the road

Probably a BAD idea to run double the speed limit whether MPH or KPH!

Re: Rules of the road

As we were riding around Lake Superior last summer on the way to CCR in Duluth, we passed a sign that listed the penalties for excessive speed. From memory, it was something like: on-the-spot impoundment of the bike, mega-fine, mandatory jail, and loss of license. It was pretty thought-provoking. And, I think they defined excessive speed as 30mph over the posted speed limit.\

First we saw some of these (this is an example from Google Images):


and then this (again, an example from the internet):
