Christine, Bennett's partner of three...

122 ?

Just watched the video on youtube.

Hard to tell what speed he was doing on the straight section of road, But i don't believe he was doing anywhere near 122 around that corner hardly leaning over and in the wet. Looked more like 70 tops. Maybe i'm wrong ?

Also i didnt see a brake light go on , assuming he was doing 122 when the camera first picks him up , maybe he just backed off the throttle for the corner.

Jailed Biker

If the video clip we have seen was the basis for the prosecution of 122mph speeding offence then there is something very wrong with the justice system. Unless he was clocked prior to the clip then his solicitor needs shooting as there is no way that bike was travelling at 122mph....look at the lean of the bike in the bend, 60-70mph tops. Why did he plead guilty?.....surely legal advise was to put your hands up so that the punishment will be less severe. Wrong! he should be appealing his conviction!!.

Then we come to much commented on....how the hell can you go to prison for speeding when criminals walk free or near enough as makes no difference, after all sorts of horrific crimes.

I saw on the local news about a car accident on the A52 in lincolnshire, the driver that caused it all went to court and was acquitted on three counts of causing death by dangerous driving but found guilty on a lesser charge of driving without due care and attention. It was caused by him over taking a car with a minibus and collided head on with a car comin in the opposite direction killing 3 people, he only recieved a 2 yr ban.  Where is the justice in that! once again it shows you will get a harsher sentence for just having a motorbike!
