Lane Discipline?

Ignoring all the speed stuff I was not surprised by all the numpties in the outside lane overtaking absolutely nothing. As another poster says, why do they never get pulled? Because there's no money to be had from educating but there's plenty to be had from geeing this guy up until he posted a big number.

There was plenty of opportunity/reason to stop this rider way before it got that dangerous. It's outrageous - Would they have taped a sexual assault & kept going till the rapist shot his load? What  hypocrisy too - the rider in front was dangerous but it was safe for the persuing officer? - utter bollox - they think we're all fucking idiots.There is only one explanation for this - Blatant propaganda to justify the revenue gathering that has grown out of all proportion to ANY reduction in accidents.

Grow up, you lot

nc30nutter has it exactly right - And here was I thinking that bikers had above average intelligence, knowledge and reason, yet so many of these posts could have been written by Daily Mail readers. Someone writes "- they think we're all fucking idiots." and then goes on to prove it!

maybe they should get a unmarked bike to stop murders, rapes and muggings first, or are these crimes low on the agenda ?    oh i see no revenue in it .

Wipe those tears away BUSA666...

Dear BUSA666 and other banging on about Police entrapment and what an unfair cruel world it is where the Police are just trying to meet targets and are out to get bikers and its a government conspiracy and everyone hates us and blah blah blah... NO ONE MADE THIS GUY RIDE AT 140 AND UNDERTAKE LIKE A DICK. He had it coming, go to a track if you want to ride like that. It's not Police entrapment, an officer will use his judgement to evidence the offence as fully as possible to avoid the rider trying to get off on some loophole at court later. I'll spell that out for you a bit clearer... they'll film until they've got enough to make sure the rider is knackered and will get a big punishment, hence the idea of releasing these videos as a deterrent. This video has already caused some discussion on here, and if that means people reading this think twice before they open it up then then it's done what the Police wanted. Well done Kent Police, we're all better off with this guy riding the bus.

Speeding biker.

Not supporting the entrapment idea, but 42 seconds in and he's already popped a wheelie, undertaken cars and exceeded 100mph, all on video. That's enough for the courts so why not pull him over then instead of letting it continue? Makes no sense at all.

Seemed Ok to me just a bit fast. No one had to brake late No one swerved As for undertaking well keep to the left unless over taking and stop hogging the fast lane, nothing worse than some one hogging the fast lane. Gives a bike no choice but to undertake.

Why did not the pig pull him as soon as he broke limit . Probably cause he likes to race at speed and he by following that way incited the biker to thing he was racing him
