    No camera on the bike and not likely to be, knowing a rider got a year in clink for his speeding when reviewed by the Po Po for a stop check. W210 was 2005 and too busy enjoying the drive to be taking pictures - 3,500 miles through 10 countries. Great trip

    There's breaking it and then there's vapourising it.

    There’s speed and there’s inappropriate speed. Unfortunately whilst Traffic Police generally understand the difference speed cameras don’t and neither do Governments who see the cash cow.

    There's homicide, culpable homicide and justifiable homicide.

    I value your opinion, how do you rate this one?

    I had a ride on one of those when they came out. The Met Police were having one ECM tested, & I had a ride on it while it was there. Now Mr Sensible on a FJR1300.

    Had a 748 as a loan bike in the 90's for a day. Possibly them most uncomfortable bike I have ever ridden. But handling it was in a different world.

    I see the fuel gauge is going down in direct proportion to the speedo going up :D

    Did you manage to bend the speedo end stop? :p

    How much does that cost? (Must download an update from SCDB before I set off south at the end of the month)

    Edit - just realised that works out as about 72.5mph in a 68mph limit. A bit harsh I think!

    I've just been invited to attend a driver re-education course next month :( ... I was just slow enough to not get points. :eek: (49 in a 40 .... the cut off was 53 before points)

    Hmm.. going back to earlier in the thread, is the whole 90 limits are now 80 limits still a thing? I definitely went through some speed cameras at 90kmh which looked functional during Feb, March and May trips in france. I had no idea they had cut the limit down. Am i likely to get a ticket still do we think being a few months later?

    its still in effect ,and as the B,s have farmed the collection to private outfits i think you can say its still likely..
