    I bet the type of people who'd want to stand there all day with a speed gun would be old codgers with nothing better to do and their cataracts will stop them from reading the numberplates anyway.

    Also the fastest thing that overtook me on "The Road" that day was a bloody car :D

    Well they are only worried about the 30mph bit/bits so there's not really a problem in the twistys. What made me laugh is that all they do is send you a strongly worded letter, If you are brave enough to ignore a few letters then the Police will pop round to give you a good telling off. :( + :D = :p

    A couple of years ago one of the villages around here had a group with a speed gun. As soon as the weather turned I saw them less and less frequently. They eventually disappeared altogether.

    I think everyone slowed right down in the 30 zone. I know I did and everyone behind me. Better the purple rinse brigade then the boys in blue though. God love em.

    They did this in my local village, was a spectacular own goal as most of the people caught were from the village, including a number of them that had been vocal in condemning the speeders in the first place :D

    Unfortunately not. Youtube "lost" my channel and when they found it the videos were all gone never to be seen again. I had built a new PC by then and didn't bother keeping the originals. Shame as I'd like to see Agnes tear arse past me on his 1098S down 4T5's special road.

    You were on your thou mate. Breaking in a new rear tyre if I remember correctly.

    But yes, The SV is gone and the CBR is in it's place so can't say I'll have the same bike this time round

    edit: Ah this is the 2012 meet. Thought it was about last years meet
