Bike journo caught at 160mph was ‘euphoric’ after proposing to girlfriend

£15 to the victim

Who was the victim?   The dude who'd been goaded into speeding by the pig, of course!

Looks like the East Peckham by pass near the Hop Farm, for those that are bothered. Whatever,  it shows a lack of observation on this dimwit's part. Here's a clue - if something is matching your speed, chances are it's an un marked Plodmobile of some description. Use your mirrors; if you see a motor doing what I just described above, slow down and let it pass. If it sits behind you, either you have a really cute arse, or its waiting for the next display of fuckwittery from you.

By the way, the "euphoria" will wear off once the stretch marks, loss of nights out, ditching 2 wheels for a car etc. kicks in.

Wasn't there a chap the other week that got caught doing less than 160mph, and got banned for a year, a larger fine, a fair amount of weeks unpaid, and had to do all his tests again?

“What is the Safe breaking distance at 160mph when following a vehicle?”

It is not safe to have anything break on your vehicle when you are going 160 mph. ;)
