Well, nothing really exciting for me today other than a trip to the police station after inspecting my bike in great detail (I haven't had it out for well over a month).

In short, I received a red light camera traffic infringement recently which doesn't match my 955i at all. The licence plate in the photo looks dodgy, I wasn't even in the country at the time, and no-one else had access to my bike.

I requested a formal review and they weren't convinced (Apparently a silver 955i looks exactly like a black jap bike). So now I have no option but to take it to court.

Tonight I went to the police station to report my licence plate has been duplicated. Not much they can do as the plate wasn't stolen, and they don't take reports for cloned/fake licence plates.

As the desk officer said, all my evidence is in order so I'll have to take it to court where the prosecutor will most likely withdraw the ticket. Now I wait weeks for a court date and then waste a day of my time there.

Meanwhile, I'm waiting for some good weather to take a ride. I replaced the original (2001) plugs back in April but haven't ridden it since, hoping for some minor improvement.

Hi Andrew it hasn't happened to me but I live in the State of Queensland, it's not quite that draconian up here in the Sunshine State yet.

State of Victoria has heavy duty traffic policing.

It can be. You can lose up to 12 points in a 3 year period, then licence loss.

I'm nowhere near that but am miffed that I've been charged for something I didn't do, and the upon review the police rejected my arguments. There's no choice now but to face the court and argue my case, which is just wasting tax payers dollars.

I've an ironclad case of innocence.

Broadford trackday. Sussurf, honour was regained (you know what I mean, Phil)... plus a great battle with a Z1000 (Triumph came out on top). Youngest on his K7 GSXR750 - 1 week after purchase.

Cool Gave a Roo a headache!

Well

it wasn't intentional, took off this morning at 6:30 am (dawn here at the moment), off over my close and fun motorcycle roads in the hills was travelling at a very respectful posted speed limit speed of 100kph.

When what felt like a 150mm rock hit my left leg just below the knee and above the top of my Falco race boots about where my knee slider would normally go (I don't wear them on my leathers on the road anymore).

Feeling that was a really hard hit through my leathers and thermals, I thought what the [email protected]#k was that???

as I glanced down at my leg, to see if it was still intact, and whilst backing off on the throttle at the same time I spotted in the mirror a small kangaroo (likely around 40kg) beating a hasty retreat back into the scrub line on the left side of the road, from whence he clearly originated.

I'd say the poor little bouncy guy has a really bad headache Lucky for me my Tiger Angel leather pants have a 10mm thick CE shin and knee armour and that I have a skeletal bone density measurement that tops the charts (recently determined about 6 months ago by a Dexa scan). I had a sore leg for about an hour and a tiny bruise.

No damage to me or the shiny red Daytona 955i

In 48 years of riding motorcycles I have had at least 4 really close calls with larger roos, but once again I was very very lucky.

Also managed to dodge a revenue camera and an unmarked Police car...... bounus.

cheers
