Howdy from Antwerp
« on: October 15, 2017, 04:17:50 PM »
Hi fellows,

I am from Antwerp, Belgium. Age 43.
I've been riding motorcycles since 1996. This is my first Beemer and maybe not the last. I've been riding twins mostly.
My S1000XR will be available November 10th. Counting down...

It is not as bad at it seems. At least not in Belgium.
Most speed cameras make use of 2 loops in the asphalt. As long as you don't cross these loops... Lanes are approx 2.5 meters wide. Loops are approx 1.5 meters wide. That means you have a gap of 1 meter between two lanes where speed can't be measured.  :305:
I haven't been ticketed for a couple of years now. Touch wood.
