Mechanic caught doing 247 km/ h on bike
« on: May 19, 2020, 05:30:10 am »
On netnuus, a mechanic was caught doing 247 km/ h on the N1 near bellville, riding a client's motorbike, apparently he could not get away from the traffic cop, traffic cop must be a Rossi?

Client: it feels slow. Can you have a look?
Mechanic: Certainly sir.

As GJ can attest, I have successfully ran from cops many, many times on the roads. :thumleft:

The big problem with people getting caught, is panic.  The fleeing suspect >:D seem to freeze up out of fear, or simply give up.

Even on the N1, it is highly unlikely that one would be caught on anything fairly fast, as there are so many escape routes, even through the "middelmannetjie", which is open all over.

Metro Cops have those ST1300 Hondas, top speed Ī225km/h, probably less with all the crap they stick on it.

Perhaps a case of:

Cop to biker:  "Do you know why I stopped you?"
Biker:  "Because I let you."

Doubt if it was a bike  cop. You never see them other than arranging parking at filmshoots (glorified meter-maids (remember them poppies!!)). Those GTI's that the ghost squad use can really move it. They also have a couple of lexus (not sure what model).

Problem is that, contrary to popular belief, not many riders do those kinds of speeds too often (if ever) and kak bricks. Doubt if they could outrun a fast car with a good driver.

I agree, add to that panic and it's game up.

Sub 160km/h pay the fine, if over - get pulled over, walk a few meters and have a kak whether you need it or not, gross but I pretended to do it once over Sir Lowries when I  was caught at something like 225km/h on my BILs BMW superbike, he was following me on my 990 and paid a big fine, I was riding with an expired license at the time, the cop didn't bother checking it mid crouch - maak klaar en beweeg Meneer:)

Mechanic was clocked at 247km/h on a customer's Ducati . Then they casually followed him home and arrested him when he stopped at home.
