YouTube speeder tells all

Published: 19 February 2007

MCN spoke exclusively to Jeremy Parrott, the YouTube biker, who reckons he has been treated like: “a sex offender” or “bank robber” for a speeding offence.

When Parrott posted video clips of his antics on board a 185mph Yamaha R1 Superbike on internet site YouTube the last thing he expected was a call from the Police and to face a jail sentence for his actions.

However, his clip of extreme riding on 30mph limit public roads shocked a local Somerset website community to such an extent that they demanded Police take action or they’d take the law into their own hands.

As a life long MCN reader, Parrott wanted to use MCN as his platform to explain his side of the story. Here are the edited highlights from our exclusive interview with Parrott.
