Very much an idiotic way of driving on public roads the Police must have had prior proof to get a warrant I would have thought.

Saw this last night on the local news - hand held footage of the speedo accelerating to 160+

Lucky to be nicked before smearing himself across several lanes I think.

Remember the police video of them chasing a guy from Sussex to Kent a couple of years or so ago?
The guy they were chasing was riding much safer than the copper following, who was unbelievably dangerous.
The video got withdrawn very quickly after loads of comments and complaints.

Well I've done quite a lot of 'riding like a twat', if that's what you want to call it. I like riding very fast, I like wheelies, stoppies, knee-sliders and general hooning about.

But I've never really understood this recent obsession with filming it all. Asking for trouble, surely? As for filming with one hand while holding on to the bars with the other at 189mph - well no thanks...

A good call. The article typically focuses on the speed and didn't seem to mention much that he handled stolen bikes, fake plates and the speed itself was on a stolen bike. Speed kills don't you know, let's not mention bike theft which has many more 'victims'

Apologies for the link. https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6822500/i ... -motorway/
