    Actually I got an endorsement for 48 in a 30 in about 1980. Apart from that I've been too smart to get caught, or i#ve just had bikes that are so cool you need to ride slow so chicks see you .




    Or maybe as you said!

    I've been pretty lucky to have never been caught. I'm saying this with fingers crossed because almost two weeks ago I happened to be rolling at around an indicated 60mph through a 50mph dual carriageway around Bournemouth when a mobile camera van hove into view from behind a bush, and the following day on the A303 around Winchester I was doing an indicated 80 when I rounded a bend to find another mobile camera van parked on the verge. TBH I try not to go much above an indicated 80 in the Elgrand because it gets a bit spendy in the fuel depratment, and on the GPS that's probably around 73-74 so generally I feel quite safe.

    The bike's a different matter tho and I'm glad the mobile vans are always forward facing, although it's not hard to see they could have a rear-facing camera or a plod with a notebook to catch passing bikes. Last week I was lucky on the A303 that at that particular spot I wasn't going much over 80, so hopefully they've deemed it not worth a follow-up.

    I got done in Germany a couple of months ago 76km/h in a 70 zone....a pathetic €15 euro fine but getting a letter from Die Polizei was worth it.

    What kind of a fine is €15?
    and 6km/h over the speed limit? WTAF?

    Let's see:
    1984, A75 near Dumfries - don't ride that road anymore.
    1990, M6 done by a Gatso pilot scheme. I still speed on the M6 from time to time.
    1996, A396 Exmoor - don't ride that road any more.
    2011, A34 Upper Brook street in Manchester - distracted while late for a work appointment. The photographic evidence they sent me of a 38 in a 30 offence showed a Fazer Thou standing on its nose, rear wheel in the air. I'm still quite chuffed I got it down to 38, and a course rather than a court appearance. I am well aware of this fixed speed camera (was then too, stupid!) so I don't speed here any more.
    Given that I exceed a speed limit on every single ride, 4 times caught in 37 years of daily riding is not a bad return.
