speed camera Fail!

A motorcyclist was caught by a Swiss speed camera last week, accused of doing 107 km/h in an 80 km/h zone. The surprise bit; he was sliding along the road surface at the time.


Reports say he tried to brake when he saw the camera but lost the front end, slipped and fell. The rider was not injured but will loose his license for at least 3 months.

That photo has been chopped up, in the original the speed was indicated at 102km/h in the upper lefthand corner....still that had to be a rush sliding at that speed!

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

If you're caught, you're caught. What's a $300 ticket compared to fairings and parts for an RC51?
