The pair, one on a Honda CBR1100 carrying a passenger, and the other on a Honda CBR600RR, were travelling southbound on the A11 at Snetterton on Sunday at 8.25am when they were spotted by an officer from the Road Casualty Reduction Team speeding.

The officer followed the two bikes and recorded their speed on video before stopping the riders.

They told the officer they were running a bit late to meet some people at the Superbike meeting at Snetterton.

Both riders were reported for excess speed and issued a Traffic Offence Report.

PC Mark Carter, from the roads policing unit, said: 'Police would like to remind all road users that excess speed can significantly increase their risk of incident and injury.

'Whilst encouraging road users to come and enjoy the county of Norfolk, we would ask that they respect the speed limits and drive to the conditions and roads we all use.'
