A man’s partner called police and begged them to arrest her speeding biker boyfriend over fears he would die on the roads.
North Wales Police released the transcript of the woman’s anonymous call as the number of motorcyclists dying on Welsh roads continues to rise.
More motorcyclists have died on roads in north Wales so far this year than in all of 2017.
The woman told police: "My partner is a biker and is visiting north Wales this weekend and already boasting that he will be doing over a ton whenever he can.
"I know where they are starting from. Please, please try and find and stop them.
"We have children and I would rather him banned or in jail than dead.
"I am sorry to put this on you as I know you are already overworked."
To date, eight motorcyclists have died after rider Gareth Wyn Roberts, 53 from Holyhead, was killed in a collision in Trearddur Bay, Anglesey, on Wednesday.
In 2017, seven motorcyclists died in the north of the country while eight lost their lives in 2016.
Police said they will be sending more officers to speak to bikers in the coming weeks.
Sgt Trystan Bevan of North Wales Police said eight people having died by late May was a cause for "concern".
Asked why so many have died, he said: "You have to look at everything, to be honest, but one of the main reasons is that north Wales is very popular and its beauty attracts many people here…
"And the good weather has meant that more people than usual have come to visit our area."
Road safety consultant Tom Jones said police officers "work very hard to speak to motorcyclists" but added they could do "more than just instil fear".
He said: "They could talk more with bikers.
"We need road safety courses to be available, ones that don’t look down on bikers."
