Mono’, speed, may lead to court


THE rider of a Yamaha R1 sports motorbike performed a “mono” near the Bungower Rd on-ramp on Peninsula Link, Moorooduc, by lifting the front wheel.

After slowing down for the speed camera at Eramosa Rd, he accelerated to 173 kph, 9pm, Thursday 10 August.

Somerville Highway Patrol police manning their radar said the motorcycle then accelerated again to more than 200 kph approaching Golf Links Rd, with the windy weather visibly blowing the bike around.

The 25-year-old rider, of Skye, was intercepted and is expected to be charged on summons with driving at a dangerous speed, improper use (loss of traction of the front wheel), and exceeding 100 kph.

His motorcycle was impounded for 30 days with a release fee of $1032.
