Exactly bud. The justice system is a bag of turds but we peasants just put up with it and nothing will change, either plan the revolution or look forward to summer. :D

Presumably considered contributory to the crash. As in, wouldn't have happened if he wasn't speeding. But still a disgusting double standard.

There was something on the news the other day, female copper grabbed round throat, head smashed into the ground and then had large mass of hair from scalp ripped out - for doing her job.

12 week suspended sentence.

The law is an ass, run by the media and whoever stomps their foot the loudest.

Save your filming for the track or fields.

I have seen this footage pop up quite a few times in different places and have to say that if you stop looking at the speedo and start looking at the riding style you can see why he ended up in a hedge.

On the corner he crashed the BMW was positioned left on the road took a smooth line round the bend to the right and looked at where he wanted to go rather then what he didn’t want to hit.

The guy on the KTM was in the middle of the road, paniced quite a way before the corner. Clearly target fixated on the hedge and if you watch did not manage to lean or turn the bike at all just kepted going straight.

If this is the way your going to ride you can have this accident at 60mph just as easy as at 120mph.
