A Niagara man has been caught speeding at 111 km/h over the posted limit.

Police in Thorold used a radar gun to clock a man zipping by on motorcycle at 161 km/h in a 50 km/h zone Thursday afternoon. It  happened on a long, straight stretch of the Welland Canals Parkway. "People do tend to use that as a bit of a speedway," says Niagara Regioal Police constable Jacqueline Fuentes. "But 111 kilometers over is a little exessive to anybody's standards."

Fuentes says police found the driver's licence was suspended, he was not insured and the plates on the bike were not intended for it.

A 45-year-old man from Welland has been handed nine tickets.

The motorcycle he was riding has also been impounded for seven days as part of a stunt driving charge.

    I guess the long straight road, a 45 year old on a bike will a pea brain and the need for speed will entice you to go that fast .. but really.. he was prepared to face the consequences after all he knew he was riding with suspended licence, he was not insured and the plates on the bike were not intended for it..

    9 tickets, he will probably rather go to jail then pay the fine..
