Biker 'was flying' at 243km/h
« on: April 28, 2006, 08:01:56 am »
The roads are safer with him behind bars....IDIOT... probably wearing his jeans pant.. and t shirt
      
A motorcyclist on an unroadworthy Suzuki was arrested after he was allegedly clocked going at 243km/h in a 120km/h zone in Ekurhuleni on Thursday.

"He was flying," said metro police spokesperson Kobeli Mokheseng.

The man, in his thirties, was nabbed on the N17 in the Rondebult area at 07:45.

The bike was "discontinued" after it was found to have oil leaks, no registration plates and handlebars that were not aligned.

The man would remain behind bars until his appearance in the Boksburg magistrate's court on a charge of reckless and negligent driving on Friday.

Why did he stop?? At that speed, no cop car will catch him.

Maybe he ran out of oil?

Just thought I would let you know it was not me, as I seem to be the only stupid bugger still here and working today!

That's the road from Wadevile towards Springs innit :?: It used to be such a nice quiet road and used it alot during my rep days in SA. I have also gone down that road pretty fast even though it was in a BMW 333i and dead of night :D

the more important issue here is, the ekurhurhlueni metro (well known to be a law unto themselves) are STILL having a go a "whiteman" practices.
 
1. last year they were confiscating quads left-right-and-center. yeah, yeah, i know some of you hate quads, but the fact is a lot of my mates from the Quadtorque forum were accosted by these cops. they tried to confiscate their quads, and many times succeeded - on what grounds you ask? for riding an unlicensed vehicle under suspicion of theft. that is because my friends werent tresspassing, or being a nuisance at the time. they weren't fined, or arrested, but were charged exhorbitant release & storage fees at the pound, after proof of ownership was provided. then we got clever by taking our license discs and registration papers on each ride. the cops then started focussing their attention elsewhere......

2. on superbikes. a month or two ago i read an article in the paper about the eekurhlhurleni metro arresting a multitude of bike riders on a sunday morning.

my point is.... they only go after the "crimes that pay".
by that i mean the ones that pay them [the police]. they dont go after taxi drivers because taxi drivers are faceless, nameless, and have no address to send a summons to - they have no money to pay the fines anyway. using manpower to police real crimes like rape and murder cost the government more money in terms of legal fees and the running of already overfull jails. policing crime has, due to the mis-apropriation of funds within our "new and improved" government, been forced to become a profit making enterprise. they are using the term law enforcement as a mask to hide behind, in order to bring in money.

quadbikers, superbike riders etc. provide a ready source of income for a crippled justice system.

the moral of the story: it seems like they have the art of catching fast bikes and cars fine tuned on the east rand (perhaps they use a trap coupled with a roadblock a few k's further), so dont ride fast on a sunday morning, especially not on the east rand.
