I nearly made the TV news yesterday. I was riding through Gippsland on the way to 90 mile beach on a Honda Blackbird. There was long stretches of open road so I was having some fun and doing between 200 and 220 for a while on the straight bits. I was well over 200kph when I saw about 80 to 100meters ahead of me a traffic cop with his car facing the same direction I was traveling on the left hand side of the road. I braked like I’ve never braked before but couldn’t slow down enough in time and tripped his radar at 121kph. I get to hang on to my license by the slimmest of margins but ended up with 3 demerits and a $244 fine. Suppose it could have been worse if I hadn’t seen him at all. I wonder what kind of fine 200+ gets these days?
