    A motorcyclist clocked travelling at almost 200km/h on the way to the MotoGP at Phillip Island was not pursued because the rider was going too fast, police said.

    The rider was heading along the Bass Highway on Sunday morning towards Phillip Island, where the Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix was being held, when police detected the motorcycle travelling at 197km/h.

    A police spokeswoman said the rider was detected on radar, but not a camera so a fine could not be issued.

    The incident was one of few at Phillip Island over the weekend, despite more than 50,000 spectators at Sunday's event.

    A minor assault took place at the Champions Bar on Friday night, resulting in two arrests.

    Police caught two motorcyclists executing "monos" (back wheel riding) and impounded both bikes.

    The separate incidents happened at Phillip Island and the outer south-eastern Melbourne suburb of Cranbourne.

                      Fool - it's the same here. Wheelies are deemed (along with stoppies, burnouts, 45+ over the speed limit and looking at a traffic cop the wrong way when he failed to get laid the night before) hoonish behaviour and if witnessed by a member of our fine thinblueline community will result in pineapples and public transport.

                        Wheelies are (funnily enough) a loss of traction to one wheel - a 'hoon' offence.

                            I wonder if there was also an incident at the Cranbourne MacDonalds involving a diesel Daewoo?

                              Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it "one or more of the driving wheels" for that part of the legislation?

                              Not saying that wheelies are ok, just that I think they'd claim a more general reckless driving charge in that you weren't in full control of the vehicle or whatever it was.
