A Sunshine Coast man has been fined more than $17,000 and is facing criminal charges after filming himself doing wheelies on a motorbike, as well as other alleged dangerous acts while riding.

Police discovered footage of the alleged offences on his helmet camera when they caught him speeding on a wet road in Maroochydore on Tuesday.

The footage also showed him riding dangerously through traffic on multiple occasions, according to police.

That includes when he performed a wheelie at 109km/h in a 60km/h zone from a red light, and another one at 201km/h while passing cars in a 100km/h zone on the Sunshine Motorway, police allege.

In total, police identified 33 traffic infringements, including speeding, unlawful lane splitting, failing to stop at a red light, stopping on a footpath and disobeying a direction arrow on the road.

He was fined $17,512 for the infringements.

The 27-year-old’s Maroochydore property was raided the following day and his BMW motorcycle was seized.

Police also allegedly found a marijuana “grow room” with a hydro setup and eight mature cannabis plants.

He has been charged with one count each of producing dangerous drugs and possessing dangerous drugs.

He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on May 10.
