A 27-year-old man from South Australia, who decided to take his Dad's Harley Davidson motorbike for a spin, has been detected doing 130km/h along Wollaston Road in Warrnambool.
A police spokesman said the speeding rider was clocked at the high speed in a 60km/h speed zone.
"And he only has a learner's permit for a motorcycle," he said.
"Warrnambool police highway patrol unit members intercepted the rider and impounded the motorcycle for 30 days at a cost of $1130 dollars.
"The rider will also be heading to court to face charges including riding at an excessive speed and failing to display L plates."
Anyone with information about driving offences, or who has dash camera footage, is requested to contact their local police station immediately or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
