Motorcyclist's 200kmh in peak-hour traffic: police

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' at netrider.net.au started by spawn, Oct 24, 2008.

    Thursday night speeding blitz? Time to move the MR to another night? Not that anyone breaks any laws on the MR of course.

    Seriously though, this kind of stuff fuels the negative perception people have of bikers in general.



    Also, the article is a bit biased imo, starts off stating large number of motorcycle deaths and states various offences implying they were all bikes but not saying so explicitly. Surely they were targetting all road users but the whole article implies its the bikers breaking all the laws.. :roll:

  6. the cb400 is speed restricted to 200kph afaik to meet the requirements of a class2A bike in Japan / Singapore / etc.

    (as reported from some of the singapore bike forums)

    That said, you'd be doing 13krpm in 6th anyway.

    With a larger rear sprocket i'd suspect that you could go a bit faster.

    still I suppose I suppose it sells more papers than "studies show 90% of motorcyclists obey speed limits and follow the law"

    (please note, statistical figures pulled out my arse)

  18. ^ Top notch, guys! Loving it.

    By the by, did anyone catch the video in the article about a fellow in Qld done for doing 80km/h...on a skateboard? Got nabbed over...YouTube! Hahaha, nice. Anyway, worth a watch. Interesting to see how it pans out, he's arguing in court over the definition of 'vehicle'. As in 'dangerous operation of a'. :LOL: Hope he wins.
