    Randy Scott back in the news.

    Just watching the news, our now infamous R1 299 video guy Randy Scott, just paid ICBC $13000 to get his licence back.

    They never confirmed he got it either.

    Soon to be back on the roads after all that's happend? Waddaya think of that?


    You think ICBC still gives two shits about safety or more about profits?

    Sounds like they should do an investigation as to where the cash came from.

    I'm pretty sure it's up to the Superintendant of Motor Vehicles. $13,000 sounds punitive to me.

    and to peewee, what do you think? should he be crucified for doing something that maybe a few on this sportbike site have done? the only difference is he got caught and obviously doesn't know about times and places or cameras. he didn't hit anyone, kill anyone, all he was doing was speeding. we get pissed off at these 40 over laws and bitch and whine but when some guy gets caught speeding he's now satan? i'm sure his character will be brought up, which again, has nothing to do with his offense. anyone know what he ended up getting for his 299 ride? 13k seems steep to me.

    [QUOTE=ssblade;1750264 all he was doing was speeding.

    he wasn't JUST speeding , he was riding in an incredibly reckless manner that put himself and others at risk of serious injury or death

    13k seems steep to me.

    How many other people split lanes at "300", posted it publicly on FB and forums? I think that's slightly different than doing 120 on a highway by yourself.

    when i rode at speed gopro's didn't exist yet. i used to ride to work from van to burnaby going ludicrous speed on the highway, just never got the chance to film it. it's a sportbike site we're on, not a knitting site. these things can and do happen.

    I don't think he was on his way to work on Good Friday ...also he doesn't have a job.

    do either matter? separate the actions from the individual and you just have one habitual speeder. so what?

    It's more a sport-strom site I think. It should be renamed, it has less and less to do with sportbikes... and as the user base ages, it becomes even less so.

    no, this place is still a sportbike site. just cuz you and a bunch of other high post counters are not riding them anymore doesn't mean you're the majority here.

    I'd say it's a statement of character to commit such an offence in the first place, not to mention the notoriety he seems to have earned.

    It's not really accurate to say "all he was doing was speeding", his riding was reckless and dangerous to himself and others. That goes beyond having a bit of a rip at the right time and place.
