I survived 98 mph thru a brickwall, but 200mph?
I don't think so!
Do you know the last thing to go thru your mind when you crash a motorcycle going at 205 miles per hour????
(sorry...I needed a little potty-mouth humor today)
You can guarantee he wasn't on a Harley.....
How do these people find someone to join them in their weird activities?!
140 Over the posted limit, you better have a good excuse. One story which survives from the Cannonball/Baker races is of the guy driving the Ferrarri through Ohio at 160 or thereabouts while dressed like a priest. Cops said"Buddy, we got you doing 160 miles per hour in a 65 zone, where's the ****ing fire?" and the guy supposedly turned around so they could see the priest's robes, pointed towards the ground and said "That way my son, give a priest a ticket for speeding, and you'll find out where the fire is..."
It didn't work but it has to rate an A for effort and originality.
I don't see what the age of the driver has to do with it. And don't forget that this was a handheld timer. A quarter-second error is quite likely, especially in the case of someone who is not used to doing this. Add a quarter second to that time and the speed drops a lot.
Have camera, will travel.
Sounds like a kerry voter.
Oh, boy... I can just IMAGINE the fine for THAT ticket...
"I got a need - a need for SPEED!"
>>I once called 911 when driving home because of a group of kids on bikes riding extremely dangerously and nearly causing a couple of wrecks. The 911 operator told me "We can't pursue motorcycles. There is nothing we can do."<<
Heh, heh. I love my Magna... 8^>
No. A Harley Sportster can be built to go over 200mph. As a matter of fact a Harley Sportster held the single engine motorcycle land speed record of 265 mph for over 25 years.
Pea-sized pebble in road.
As the leaders in turbine innovation, MTT has produced the ultimate in high-performance machines: the MTT Turbine SUPERBIKE. The critically acclaimed SUPERBIKE is the world's first turbine-powered street-legal motorcycle in its class. Powered by a Rolls Royce-Allison gas turbine engine, the SUPERBIKE has demonstrated over 300 hp and 425 ft/lbs of torque on the Dyno Jet 200 and has been clocked at a record-breaking 227 mph.

A Suzki Hayabusa can do almost 200mph STOCK. It would not take much to get 205 out of it. Sorry RUBs, your Harleys ARE NOT the baddest bikes on the streets.
I know what you mean. I used to wear skimobile suits to ride with in the winter. The rip-stop nylon allows you to zing along on the pavement quite nicely, having zinged along the pavement once.
