Ridiculous, purely because he "only" got up to mid 90s in speed and slowed down. Think he thought he was either being followed or the guy wanted a race, so he slows down to let the guy go. The guy doesn't go, so he gets fed up and floors it.

 

Surely that's provocation and entrapment!?!?

Provocation?

 

What planet are you on? The biker was a complete arse and, IMO, should have got ten times the ban he did get. He should also forfeit his bike, like they do to speeders in France.

B0ll0x ! Imagine you re joining a trunk road, where you expect, perhaps, the fastest thing approaching to be doing 80 mph, and some ***t on a bike, whose front profile is less than a 1/4 of a a car's width, is doing nearly twice that. What chance would you have of spotting him ?

 

And car drivers are constantly warned to 'Think Bike'; "Think Berk" more like.

 

( Apologies to St L, et al, who I presume are ALWAYS sensible in their riding. )
