News -Police take Harley off speedster -

A man with alleged links to an outlawed motor cycle gang had his licence suspended and motorcycle confiscated after he was stopped travelling at more than 60km/h over the legal limit in Yass on Saturday afternoon.

About 5pm  police from Goulburn were checking motorists speed on the Hume Highway when they detected a Harley Davidson motorcycle which they say was travelling at 154km/h.

The motorcycle was stopped and the rider, a 26-year-old Yass man, was spoken to by the officers. The police say the rider had a provisional license, which restricts him to a maximum speed of 90km/h. The Harley Davidson was not displaying P-plates, and the engine exceeded the capacity limit, according to the officers.

Police confiscated the motorbike and issued the rider infringement notices for the offences, before suspending his licence on the spot.
