Jailed bikers - is this fair?

Just  thought i would bring this subject back up as the justice system is becoming a total joke. As i was returning home from work the other day (in the car) when a news item came up. A bloke who had tried to commit suicide by driving the wrong way along the very busy M60 ring road, deliberately doing u-turns and crashing into other vehicles as well as speeding, had been sentenced, now don't forget that some bikers have been jailed for 12 months just for simple speeding on a virtually empty motorway,can you guess what sentence this guy got...... yep a nine month suspended for two years and banned for 12 months ..... now if that is not a case for dicrimination against us bikers then i don't know what is.. Can anyone beat that for a joke.This Government needs to get its head out of its own backside and get real with what is going on in its own country because personally i do not think they have a clue and if they do they don't really care:mad:

Perhaps

the reason why cars get away with murder is that politicians can hide in cars but on a motorbike there is no where to hide. No protection from their real or imaginary assassins.:ph43r:

To everyone else

We are rebellious, non-conforming outlaws.
Society hates anything different and the media hype any bad press and play down the good stuff we do. So we will always pay the price for not being sheep.:mad:

I saw

A clip of a car driving at 109mph.

The driver got banned and 2 months community order or some shite.

Last bike I heard about going at similar speeds got jail time, despite the substantially lower risk to anyone else.

I'm assuming

Given that the guy was trying to commit suicide, his state of mind was taken into account and he was treated leniently because of some sense of 'diminished responsibility.':unsure:

i think

 i think the reason bikers get such a raw deal, is that the cops know bikes are constantly speeding and are harder to catch than cars. so when they do get one. they want to make a proper example of them. like i say it aint fair but what is in this wonderful country of ours?
