    Question

    Yes, I do enjoy exaggerating slightly for dramatic effect.
    I would get at least a 125cc

    But seriously, what part was I misinformed about?

    A NZ friend of mine said "don't bring that bike to NZ, you'll get deported."
    (a piece of my heart got deported when I heard that)

    So yeah. A rather dramatic piece of (serious) advice that I received.

    Not that I'm a speedster. I've never exceeded the speed limit intentionally. But these machines can do it quite quickly, then you're like britney spears "Oops, I did it again"

    I drove around Wellington, Auckland and the north half of the South Island. I saw the signs with my own eyes.
    If I said something that's not correct, please enlighten me?

    Is this just a fantasy joke that you wish was true? What are you actually saying?

    Speed limit in town is 50kph, although some town centres are 30kph and that's usually plenty fast enough where it applies. Once you leave town the limit is mostly 100kph, although there is a current fad for an 80kph limit in some places. Additional taxation may accrue if you ignore these, but many do. Time and place etc...

    Wrong. NZ Highway Patrol on the move and camera vans use microwave radar. Laser jammers don't work on them. Hand held lasers are a bit less common in terms of use by the police over here. As an aside, I recently saw that a UK motorist got absolutely hammered for using a radar jammer as the judiciary charged him with perverting the course of justice.

    I didn't bother to re-fit my detector and screamer when I bought the current bike 3 years ago and it's just sitting in the shed. As Pritch says......... "time and place"
