Cool caught 110kph OVER the speed limit....bummer

G'day,

ok....certainly it wasn't me......

Just on the radio this morning...Yammy rider caught doing 110kph over the posted 60kph speed limit by a Police radar trap yesterday (Sunday)......had his license immediately suspended...that would make walking home a PITA...

BUT the "quirk" of the tale is that he was caught going down Con Rod straight, on Mount Panorama, race track for the biggest V8 supercar race in Oz, at Bathurst...seen here at

http://www.ltl.com.au/bathurst/Bathu.../bathurst7.htm

as Mount Panorama is a public road during the non race times legal speed limits apply....I have poodled around Mount Panorama with Beryl Beemer once or twice, at the legal limit (boring?????) but as shown...I'm still riding around, as opposed to this ex Yammy rider....

Guess the week can only get better for this guy.....

cheers

Phill

Got bagged at 111mph in a 35mph in my younger, wilder and little sensible days. Cost a bunch for a lair, I mean lawyer to get me back out of it. He called it speeding, reckless and something else. Way back in '76 on my first HD.
