21yr old R1 biker caught doing 140km/h over speed limit

Haha, I had to laugh when I saw this article. A young fella from Australia was caught at 3 times the speed limit along a suburban road with his Yamaha R1. The problem is that his bike was unlicensed as well. And, not far away, last month a biker got killed, there are still flowers around a pole. If I am not mistaken it was also a Yamaha R1 rider.

Okay, I hate speed limits, but please, use your common sense. Although I can imagine the guy must have had good fun riding at this speed in a suburban area. The thrills are just inimitable.

To ride at such a speed was "ridiculous,'' Hobsons Bay Traffic Management Unit's Sen Con Marcus Owen said.

"We don't get that every day. You are looking at three times the speed limit and if you were there would have been lucky to see it going past,'' he said.
