Motorcyclists not immune to front-facing speed cameras

Motorcyclists can be caught by front-facing speed cameras even though they don’t capture our number plates, a court case has shown.  Steven Skilton, 22, pleaded guilty to six separate speeding offences after being linked to speed camera photos by tiny details on his motorcycle and clothing. An expert who usually helps identify murderers and armed robbers from CCTV footage had...

Steve, your a f*****g twat!! I bet you even saw the van and thought in your tiny brain, 'bet i will look well cool by poppin one infront of old bill'... Well thanks for making us all scapegoats now you mug!  We all like abit of  fun on our bikes... Otherwise we would just drive cars alone. If you had a brain you would save this sort of stuff for quiet, country roads, not busy 30mph town roads. Thanks Steve Skilton, (aka the twat!)

Camera Madness?

The best place for tricks and stunts is.......the track not out on the road.

A while back some chappie was riding his rather snazzy and rare BMW Tourer down in the Home Counties i believe, and on passing thru' a camera decided in his wisdom to give it the two fingered salute! the police not finding this amusing turned every stone to find him, turned out his bike was a rarer special edition, only a handful exist in this country, so he got done.

One last point, if you are going to commute or ride through camera zones, do it in black on a black bike, something common on the roads and get your face behind a tinted visor or screen, making you anonymous.

Ride safe everyone.

He was identified by the jacket

The video is on the BBC website and the officer states that the "criminal" was identified by wearing a green/black/grey Dainese jacket of which only 2 were imported into the UK. Hmmmm, I have a matching Dainese jacket and a green Kawasaki. I wonder where my court summons are?
