140 km/h over the limit

How do you get your kicks? Probably not by riding on two wheels at speeds of 220 km/h, but one man in Delta was caught doing just that.

Delta Police posted a video to YouTube today showing GoPro footage from a motorcyclist they caught back in April.

The video shows the rider travelling down Highway 17, weaving in and out of traffic, and hitting speeds of 220 km/h in an 80 km/h zone.

The rider eventually comes around a corner and sees a police speed trap, where they clocked him going 213 km/h.

Delta Police said in the video’s description the motorcycle was impounded and the rider was subject to multiple charges.
