  1. 200km/h motorcyclist escapes
    October 15, 2007 12:20pm

    A MOTORCYCLIST clocked at almost 200km/h on the way to the Moto GP
    at Phillip Island was not pursued because the rider was going too fast, police
    said today.


    The rider was heading along the Bass Highway yesterday morning towards
    Phillip Island, where the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix was being, when
    police detected the motorcycle travelling at 197km/h.

    A police spokeswoman said the rider was detected on radar, but not a
    camera so a fine could not be issued.

    Police caught two motorcyclists executing "monos'' (back wheel riding) and
    impounded both bikes.

    The separate incidents happened at Phillip Island and the outer south-eastern
    Melbourne suburb of Cranbourne.

  8. Yeah but they were probably speeding man. Come on! SPEEDING! There's things we can let slip, things that are understandable like you know, killing someone because of "momentary inattention". But wheelies... fcuk they could have killed someone...

  15. Catch them and put them i jail for 3 months and mo licence for 2 years. That way they might learn what the privledge is to be able to ride on the road. Keep the stunts and racing to the rack

  16. Lovely, give me your mobile number and the next time I go to an accident with a motorcyclists head crushed to a pulp I can give you a call to come have a look.

    Think about the other people these morons affect when they come to grief.
