I got done on the way to work this morning. Who knew I'd come across a motorcycle cop at 4:30am, on a rural road??? He got me for crossing a solid line (I overtook someone illegally) and doing 100km/h (62mph) in a 70km/h (43mph) zone.
I copped one demerit point and a AUD$60 (US$44) fine for the solid line and three demerits and a AUD$250 (US$183) fine for the speeding.
I was fortunate in that he downgraded the speeding from my actual speed of 105km/h (65mph). If that had stood, I was looking at a AUD$600 (US$438) fine and loss of licence for six months!
I have been turning the wick up a little lately, so I guess this was my cheap reminder to take it easy and ride safe...
