North Yorkshire Police admit they are disappointed that so many people are still speeding following a joint clampdown in the Dales with colleagues from Cumbria.
One motorcyclist was clocked travelling at 107 mph during the operation in Craven.
The speeding biker was one of two motorcyclists who received court summonses for excess speed during the operation.
A further eight bikers and three car drivers were also stopped for speeding in North Yorkshire and were given fixed penalty tickets.
Cumbria Police, who had their safety camera van stationed on the A65, issued 30 fixed penalty tickets to speeding motorists.
Traffic Sergeant Pete Stringer, of Skipton Road Policing Group, said: "Craven and Cumbria are extremely popular areas with bikers and it is important that road laws are respected at all times.
"The number of collisions we see in these areas is something that needs to be reduced and with a combination of enforcement and education activities hopefully we can save lives.
"People need to realise that speeding kills and we will keep targeting the areas where we know people are breaking the law until the message through."
