I must agree with you. I live near a school and there is a 20mph limit on all the surrounding roads. A few weeks back I saw a bike with a driver and pillion passenger go across the end of my road doing a wheelie. Having ridden bikes for many years I reckon he must have been doing at least 40-45mph to be able to hold a wheelie with 2 up. Unfortunately I was not in a position to be able to see his registration number.
"This case should send out a clear message that such reckless riding will not be tolerated." ...when the article also states that after the 18 month ban that his 39 points will be cleared from his licence.
Isn't it normally 12 points followed by a years ban??
If so, then he has accumulated over 3 years worth of points, and the same periods worth of disqualification, but gets it cleared after only 18 months?
quite often in and around London - a favourite place seems to be the Hatfield tunnel on the AI at night. Many of these riders are probably quite competent, and they probably think they're safe enough. The problem is that with the front wheel off the ground they have no steering, and all it takes is a split second......
