Z750 on youtube

By squashee - 31 December 2008 156

After we have all had some great discussion on road safety in Canberra, particularly relating to motorcycles recently, I noticed a new posting on YouTube today.

Hopefully nature will be kind to “Joel” in the clip, but it proves that we “normal” folk worry about going a few kilometres over the limit and being caught by the cameras, while some idiots choose to break the law and film themselves doing so.

Let’s hope the cops catch this guy before a kangaroo does – shouldn’t be hard – how many Z750s are there in Canberra?

What’s Your opinion?

Since you obviously are an expert in this field, please grace us with your plan on how this could be achieved to the satisfaction of everybody….

I didn’t claim to be an expert, I gave my opinion. Also, what makes you think I need to come up with a plan to achieve this?

Nice bit of sleuthing there Kramer….

Simple, put more police in marked cars driving around. If you want to even go one better tell them to be on the lookout for people doing stupid things, not just speeding.

And how much of this sort of behaviour do you think we’d see if there was a regular and visible police presence on the roads?

What is it with F***tards doing illegal stuff and then placing all the evidence of it up on the web for all (inc the coppers) to see?

I personally hope that when he has his accident (and it will happen, the web is littered with people bragging about their skills to have an accident only days later) it’s between him and a tree, and not some other road user.

Damn, nice work Kramer!

That wouldn’t be the same as this Joel?

With photos of the same red speedo doing 200+ on Anzac Parade.

and more photos including a Z750. The latest pics have an obscured number plate, but there’s another on of what appears to be the same bike with the NSW rego JMM88. Male 20 years old, virgo sign (so August/Sept ’88 DOB). Is that enought for the AFP to send him a ticket (or at least a caution)?

What a tool. Only a matter of time before he comes unstuck.

Personally I hope the roo gets him first…

Pisses me off. Pricks like this give sane riders (the vast majority) a bad name. Don’t get me wrong, riding a motorcycle at high speed is one of the most awesomely fun things you can do, but public roads are not the place to do it.
I’m less worried about a kangaroo catching him than some poor bastard’s driver-side door…

As a sports car driver I can tell you that over the last 2.5 years I’ve seen a definite increase in the amount of marked patrol cars on the roads, well at least down south here I have.

I pretty much see one every time I get in my car and drive, and I don’t forget the amount of unmarked vehicles going around as well.
