Dangerous Motorcyclist Speeding in Giralang

By LSWCHP - 15 December 2011 43

Every weekday morning for the last 6 weeks or so some lunatic has redlined his motorbike through Giralang at about 7am. I’ve also heard his bike screaming, and I mean screaming, down the road in the evening on a number of occasions, as recently as ten minutes ago.

This is unacceptable.

I used to ride a large motorcycle, and I can guarantee that regularly riding at well over 100 km/h on a suburban back street will soon result in disaster for the rider and other people. I don’t care too much about the ratbag on the bike, but I don’t want someone to be killed while they’re waiting for their bus or walking their dog in the morning.

If the arsehat who is doing this reads RA or has friends who read RA, be advised that I intend to let the cops know what is happening, and hopefully they’ll be able to send a patrol car over at the appropriate time and sort things out.

Be further advised that I intend to take my trusty smartphone with its HD video camera for a walk every weekday morning from now on. If this stupidity continues I guarantee that within a couple of days I will get clear footage of the individual involved, with his plates identified, and I will submit that to the cops along with a complaint that I will put my name to.

What’s Your opinion?

If you are the rider of the bike, please stop. If you know the rider of the bike, please ask them to stop.

If this dangerous riding doesn’t stop, the rider of the bike may end up dead or maimed like the bloke from MacGregor that Thumper mentioned. Other innocent people may end up dead or maimed. If nothing else, the rider of the bike will end up receiving a visit from the plod once I get some footage.

Thanks for your contributions folks, interesting or otherwise.

You need to calm down mate, and google ZX2R. Redline of about 17,000, they make their best power around 15,000rpm – they just sound fast, while barely making the speed limit !!

I regularly hear these little jiggers (and other similiar small-capacity high-revving bikes) up the main road behind my place – well before I see them. They sure as hell are not breaking any speed limits, regardless of the fact that they sound like an F1 taking off !

As an ex-biker, you should show a bit more tolerance and stop carrying on like world peace is being threatened by some kid on a high-revving slow-as-buggery 250 ! You admit you have never seen this bike – only heard it – so you are not coming from an informed position at all, in regard to the speed it is doing – only the noise you are hearing.

If you saw how slow these things were while they made all the noise in the world – well you would probably be more embarrased for the rider really.

Funny. A mix of armchair critics, and folks with immature attitude to their fellow Canberran. You are all experts. You have seen this rider in Giralang, speeding and/or revving their bike in low gears?

Easy to take a shot as anonymous, gutless internet wunderkinds. Give the dude (the OP) a break, you insignificant whiners.

Hope he gets his video.

This rider is perfectly safe ‘cos loud pipes save lives…

I can never decide if this sentiment is more selfish, or arrogant.
