A 29-year-old motorcyclist is in serious trouble, police charging him with drink driving and high-range speeding over a ride near Brighton yesterday afternoon.

Highway patrol officers spotted the man overtaking dangerously on double white lines on Tea Tree Road.

He was allegedly going double the 60 kilometre-an-hour limit.

The Moogara man also tested more than three times the legal alcohol limit and turned out to be disqualified.

Police will apply for the permanent forfeiture of his black Suzuki GSXR 1000.

"Anyone who observed the motor cycle in the area or has dash camera footage of the riding behaviour at the time is asked to contact Southern Road and Public Order Services at Bellerive Police Station on 131444," said a police statement.
