that is the whole video,  i had just turned from a T-junction and started recording because i was entering the town. 

Anyway im not going to sit here and defend it.  And certainly wont get into a pissing contest on here so this will be my last post.

I'll add the poll shortly.
Regards,

Sheldyn

I think you guys are way too serious; give the cops the benefit of the doubt;
those cops knew once they looked at the footage that sheldyn had a case for contesting that fine and he was being friendly thought "lets not waste his time "
he was being humble and respectful and they used their professional judgement and save taxpayers money by not letting it go into the court system
if he was "hardegat" on the other hand it would have cost everyone money
Kudo's to those cops and to sheldyn
Is'nt this video why we luv SA?

its always interesting seeing this type of video being posted, had a good laugh. and heres the but....... its reckless posting this on social media, not only are you putting those cops at risk but you are also putting other bikers at risk-how do you think those cops or other cops would treat others due to seeing that video.
Please take that video down-hopefully no one saved it.
keep calm and trust in God

Not only that but you admit on camera that you had no number plate, that can be used against you should a public prosecutor run over the video in the course of casual web browsing.

Rule #1 of social media = Do not admit guilt! :deal:
It can get you;
1. Fired!
2. Criminally prosecuted.
3. Castigated by fellow users of said media. (Like now)

Rule #2 of social media = Do not post stuff that can get you in shit! :biggrin:

BUT! You have a very smooth way of worming yourself out of situations... it may even work in above scenarios as well. :thumleft:
