Suspended sentence for 150mph biker

A motorcycle rider has been hit with a suspended jail sentence, after he uploaded videos on the internet of himself driving at up to 150mph.

In April this year, 48-year-old Robert Mark Owens filmed himself four times while out riding in Buckinghamshire.

The Kawasaki 600cc bike rider captured the recordings with the help of a camera mounted on his helmet.

According to a Thames Valley Police spokesman, Owens, of Whaddon Way, Bletchley, admitted four counts of dangerous driving and was given a suspended sentence at Aylesbury Crown Court, which was sitting at Amersham Magistrates' Court.

The 51-week jail sentence has been suspended for two years. Owens will not be able to drive for five years either.

Among the other penalties he received, the spokesman said Owens will be made to complete 150 hours of unpaid community work. His camera and bike have been taken away from him and he has had his licence endorsed with 10 points.

People's ability to access cheapcar insurance can be affected if they are convicted of speeding offences.
