A South African motorcyclist tried to obscure the identity of his bike using somewhat novel means, but to no avail. The rider was clocked by police driving at 192km/h along a stretch of road close to Johannesburg. Having secured his underwear over the motorcycle’s licence plate, the rider had hoped to avoid being identified. However the fast response of the police meant the rider was not able to escape and, after the officers had taken down his particulars and removed his underwear to ensure proper identification, he was charged with speeding.
