A motorcyclist has copped a hefty fine, lost eight points and been suspended from driving for six-months after being caught riding at more than 120km/h in a suburban Gold Coast street.
The 28-year-old man was pulled over by officers from the Gold Coast Road Policing Unit just after 5pm on Wednesday, after they detected him travelling at 126km/h in a 60km/h zone on Musgrave Avenue in Labrador.
Police say he was observed overtaking another vehicle at the time.

The Southport man was issued with a high range speed infringement which includes a $1,218 fine, eight points and six-month suspension.
The incident has prompted police to issue a warning to motorists about the dangers of speeding in built-up areas.
“Speed is a contributing factor to a high proportion of serious traffic crashes in Queensland and local police will continue to target dangerous road use behaviour across the Gold Coast,” they said in a statement.
