Welcome Lee

you will find most people on here helpful and there is a wealth of knowledge on lots of subjects (not just bike related)

there is an old adage that the only daft question is the one that isn't asked.. however as this is a large forum there are often differing opinions which make interesting debates!

out of interest I have just checked to see if my bike would be charged (Triumph Thunderbird Nightstorm) but when I put the reg in it came up with my old bike (CBF1000) that I transferred the number off prior to selling it!)

wonder what would happen if I rode in and then got a ticket and I challenged it as it isn't the bike they thought it was! (as my NIPS post proves DVLA have correct bike for that plate)

When eventually I caught out it will cost me more than most because I have a paper licence and I believe I will need to pay for a photo one
I’ve had a few NIPs since the paper licence was replaced by the photocard one, they always send the paper one back with the points added… there’s no obligation to change to the plastic version if your other details are unchanged.

my NIP does state that if you have a paper part of your licence to send it and it will be retained & destroyed as it is lo longer valid.(I'm guessing that's if you don't have a photo licence.  I thought you had to get your photo licence renewed every 10 years? (just checked & mine runs out in 2020!)

What is the limit on that stretch. That's a bit harsh if it's a national speed limit.

yeah its National speed limit so 70, I was recorded doing 81!
hey ho! I broke the law & got caught. I can't complain.

I use that road a lot to visit my parents in Devon, a worry - what section was the camera on? And when did this happen? I only ask as I was visiting the folks last week but, as the weather was so nice, came home on the A30 instead... Possible lucky escape as I ALWAYS do around 80 on the A303.. (Doesn't everyone??)

it was on the A303 3 miles east of Sparkford 27/7 about 11:15
( just before you get to Maccy D'd / Yeovil roundabout!

I use it weekly to commute from Portsmouth to Falmouth, leaving Pompy approx. 10am  but have been coming back Via A30 as its such a nice ride (and virtually empty on a Sunday (5pm -8pm)
yeah that stretch of 303 is just after you have been held up on single carriageway and you can open up..
just be aware of cameras on other side of carriageway!
the pisser is I had flashed and warned couple of other bikes heading towards it to be aware but got caught myself... oh well lesson learnt!!

more a heads up than anything else!

just got a NIP through from Avon & Somerset Police doing 81 on A303.. on my bike by a mobile unit... fair cop yep hands up it was me...
paid the £100 fine & took the 3 points no issue or complaints  :o
looked at photos and the camera was over other carriageway!!
in the picture the ARMCO separating the lanes is clearly seen and I am riding away from him
I never realised that they could do that!! my ignorance, my fault.. so from now on when I seen a camera on the other side I wont laugh at others heading towards it!!!
oh n I will slow down too hahaha

my 2 pence worth!

I'd go Gortex simply if it does get wet it will dry quicker and nothing worse than pulling damp leather on!
plus by the time you realise its raining & get waterproofs over them you are already damp!
