    Probably the best advice so far.

    I'd be surprised if anyone on the forum has never thought " I wonder how fast it can go" and done it.
    DeMyer's Laws - an argument that consists primarily of rambling quotes isn't worth bothering with.

    Just thinking aloud... to the OP... if you need your licence for work and you lose your licence, what happens to your position? Would it be a good idea to chat to your employer about this wee problem?

    Forget diversion. Once the summons arrives consider getting a lawyer, try to find a good one that won’t bankrupt your arse in the process. Sell the bike and take documents to show this to court, along with some knee pads.

    There's a fair bit of "holier than thou" in evidence here. Many years ago, when I was a lot younger, I used to cruise at that sort of velocity sometimes. It's hard to even imagine R1 riders who would never do 180kph, they'd be about as common as unicorns.

    If the letter comes then, as has been suggested, it's time to consult a lawyer. The judge should give you credit for the fact that you are playing the game of money-go-round that is our court system. A JP may not be so understanding.

I have emailed asking for a photo and also done some research on what I'm looking at including fines, loss of liceanse for 28 days, careless, dangerous or wreckless driving witch is a criminal offence . Anyone had or heard of similar cases and the outcomes? ,I need my liceanse for work I'm looking at pleading guilty and more than likely trying diversion... If or when I get a follow up letter.

    Cheers.
    That's unlucky. Clearly you were not rural enough

    If the letter comes...

    Lawyer
    and have the bike "sold"

    1. He made a pass up and back on the road and didn't see the speed camera van on the first pass ... ???

    2. He was a disqualified driver at the time and thus entitled to a LESSER fine ... How does that work ...
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.

    Read it again Trev. Reads to me that the leniency with the fine was due to the imposition of the 6 month disqualification, which is mandatory with that charge.

    You won’t get diversion for a charge with a minimum specification for disqualification, all the dangerous driving charges including dangerous speed have a minimum 6 months disqualification.

    The issue with speed cameras and particularly motorbike riders with helmets is proving identity. Unless they have an admission or conduct a search warrant to match clothing they will struggle. The best that can happen is they serve a notice on the registered owner demanding details of who was using the vehicle at the time of the offending.

    That said, I agree with a lot of the comments that the speed was ridiculous and those that do the crime.....

    What caught You ? Was it one of those new digital cameras on a pole that seem to be popping up all over the place or a van . If it was a van did you get caught going into rear or going away from it? 182 KPH almost as fast as I got caught at with stationary radar last year.

    I'm currently conducting an experiment to see if those fancy new cameras can result in a ticket for riding an unlicensed bike. Another week or so and the results should be pretty clear.

    to get the record it must be an average speed of BOTH directions...
    High miles, engine knock, rusty chrome, worn pegs...
