Here’s an update on the latest chapter in the infamous B.C. speeder saga.
It all started when this video hit the web last spring; YouTube watchers were outraged at the motorcyclist’s 299 km/h top speed on his R1 along the streets of Victoria.
The police haven’t held on to the bike for long, though. It sold at a government auction this week for $4,651 – likely a generous offer, considering its somewhat troubled history. And, it seems the new owner will have to do some repairs to the ignition system – it doesn’t sound like the previous owner gave the police the keys.
