The zinc and clear passivated ones did seem to break very quickly. I expect it was hydrogen embrittlement.
The ones we had made were mechanically debured and then polished to increase life.

yes Mark. i believe they look Zinc plated. i say "shiny" 'cause everybody knows shiny.
too much heat goes into them - my metalergically ignorant opinion.

It is a slippery slope fro a law abiding citizen to a wanted criminal beat....but being done for speeding is like being caught out in cricket....but you probably have no idea what I am talking about. Well done anyway :thumb

Unlucky beat!

Let's hope that's the end of all the bad luck in this particular story.

I suppose the question is this the first time you have been caught or the first time you have been speeding?
Either way luck comes into it. Generally I rate myself in the former camp.

If the latter applies I am totally amazed you could go that slow on a B50SS with its top gearing, unless that is you are really set up for dirt but use it on the road.

We are have 40 limits around schools and work zones, 50 in the burbs and country villages, 60 on main burb roads and 80 on city arterials, 100 on main ACT and 110kph on interstates (except State of Victoria who I believe expect you to disintegrate over 100kph on their country roads) and police and vans with cameras. I noticed in Sweden they have fixed speed cameras on most roads. The worse thing here are long distance average speed zones where they have steep downhills.

I must admit the only time I have been caught on the B50 was being followed at night by a polite car right on my rear end and I tried to get out of his way instead of letting him go round me on a NZ main road. I thought he was a drunken fool who had been tailing me but he apparently turned off and the cop car ended up following me instead. He admitted in court he was just wanting to find out how fast I could go and I got off with a low cost fine.

Either way welcome Beat to the real world of crims.

usualy, - I am known as one who is doing a " right " job,- evan it is something wrong let say.
so, eleven KM/h to fast, - it looks more for a " missanderstanding " of something I guess

our police commissioner is on record as saying that even one death on our roads is too many.
totally unrealistic, considering they seem to have an aversion to increasing funding toward driver/rider training.
you are not the problem Beat, but they would have you think that you are.
missanderstanding eh? i'll give you missanderstanding sonny boy. :shock: bam, right in the wallet. :shock:
