"A man who was caught riding his motorbike along the Eastern Freeway in Melbourne with a barbecue strapped to his body was fined $800 today and lost his license for one month.
Michael Wiles spotted the cast-off cooker on the nature strip where it had been left for rubbish collection and, not wanting to splurge on a new one, decided to pick it up and take it home.
