First Ride This Year

Hi All.
Had the first ride of the year last Sunday, went to Laverda owners AGM in Warwickshire a couple of hundred miles round trip.
Received the speeding ticket today ! 36 MPH in a 30 Zone in Woodstock Oxfordshire.
I now have to decide if I want to pay the fine and get 3 points or go on a Speed Awareness course and be patronised by somebody half my age with a fraction of my driving experience but not get any points.
Incidentally it chucked it down on the way home stoping when I got to the M25.
Oxfordshire has masses of speed cameras and I must have had a momentary lapse of concentration that will teach me.

Re: First Ride This Year

A bit of bad luck that Ron,I have heard lots of people are having the points but the course will save on your insurance cost's over the next few years.I am not sure which the cheaper option would be, also do you have to declare to the insurance that you have been caught speeding.
I can see thisbeing a grey area.
