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...

Sorry to hear about it Cookee. Thats about my average for tickets though. Glad to hear he dropped your speed down a notch though. Keep your wrist down and watch your rear views! (I don't mean the Rear Views thread:twofinger )

I never saw him coming up behind me. I could see a light in my mirrors, but just thought it was from the car I'd just passed. It took a few seconds before I could see his flashers.

I haven't had a fine, of any sort, in years. Actually, I'm a bit disappointed with myself, for riding so squidly.
