Motorcyclist who was banned from riding for 82 YEARS leads cops on a wild 160km/h pursuit

  • Jason Flood asked to pull over while riding motorbike at 10pm, allegedly refused
  • Police alleged he accelerated to 160km/h in an 80 zone and stopped the pursuit
  • Flood was already banned from riding for 82 years when he was caught

A high-powered motorbike clocked doing twice the speed limit had fake plates, was uninsured and was being ridden by a man who’d been banned from riding for more than 80 years. 

NSW Police say Jason Flood had six decades remaining on the licence disqualification he copped in 2001, when officers spotted him riding a black Suzuki superbike in Wollongong’s southwest. 

When police tried to pull Flood over on the Princes Highway at Unanderra on Tuesday night he sped off, allegedly reaching speeds of up to 160km/h, double the speed limit, before the chase was called off. 

Flood was riding a black and gold Suzuki GSX-R1000, which can go from 0 to 100km/h in 3 seconds.

Police say they later found the bike on a road at Kanahooka and the rider a short distance away. 

The man was arrested after a foot pursuit, and then allegedly lied to police about who he was. 

Checks revealed he was disqualified from riding a motorcycle from 2001 until 2082 and the motorcycle was uninsured.

Police say the bike’s registration expired more than two years ago and the licence plates were cloned.

The man has been charged with 10 offences relating to the motorbike, the pursuit, and lying, and also had four outstanding warrants for drug supply, assault and other offences in Dubbo and Parramatta.

‘Police will allege in court the number plate on the motorcycle was a clone, and that the correct registration expired in July 2020,’ a police statement said. 

He was refused bail and appeared in Wollongong Local Court on Wednesday. 

Flood faced 10 charges in court including 'recklessly/furious' driving, driving while disqualified, driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, providing false information, resisting arrest and destruction of property
