When you say beat it, do you mean go fast enough that the camera can't get an angle on the plate? If so, I'm not sure the zx-10 can do it either because the stationary radar cameras here go up to 300kph. The nice thing is the camera radars here in Germany only take a pic of the front plate, so if your on a bike your in the clear.

I saw that episode last night!! I don't think it could see our plates since they are so much smaller, but then again, you never know.

They should have had a bike on there. ZX-14 turbo charged or even a turbo Busa. That would have been better!!!

I got a toll road ticket once on my bike. I passed through the toll at around 120mph and it got it. I even had the plate behind the tire on my old SV650. ya no more running tolls for me lol
