    i highly doubt the guy knew he was tagged at over 200 mph...

    prob just figured it was a routine stop... not knowing big brother had an eye in the sky...

    thats some bullshit...

    get a radio that can recieve police calls... if its legal in your area of course :)

    Unless the cop on the ground clocked him at 205 MPH, then that ticket could be easily fought.

    This was posted over on the bike board I chill at...


    i



    Anyways, bottom line he was doing over 100mph and will get a ticket for that =)

    He should tell the judge he's never been able to get it over 180mph no matter how hard hes tried=)

    Honda 1000RR will not break 200mph I think the busa is the only 200+ MPH bike ever made

    unless turboed =)

    this is what I'm thinking... clocking by hand depends on reaction time, which with that short of time can be off by quite a bit.

    a properly traind cop can estimate speed by eye plus or minus 10 with a stop watch doing it evryday he know what he is doing and the judge will bend him over

    when judging the speed of 10-20mph over YES but hes NEVER EVER tried to time a bike doing 205mph thats tripple the speed hes use to giving tickets for

    btw if hes so great at it how the hell did he get him for doing 205mph? once again no honda 1000RR will touch that speed anytime soon

    This is apparently from the guy who got the ticket:

    All right, I was the one who got the ticket and it is time to
    clear some
    things up. For one, I was riding a 2003 Honda RC51, "heavily
    modified" with
    2 Brothers slip on pipes and, well thats all the mods I have
    unless you
    count the "I stop for wh***s" sticker. Next, the bike wasn't
    impounded, it
    was towed so it wouldn't be in the roadway. Ok, on to the
    tickets. 205...uh
    no. I am personal friends with the owner of "Hitman Motorsports"
    and
    tonight, Sept. 22, we did a top speed run on his dyno, in 6th
    gear, and
    maxed nearly 60mph slower than I was arrested for. The "no
    motorcycle
    endorsement" is because my licence was expired, I do have a
    motorcycle
    endoresement for all you people digging into me about that. The
    stop watch
    method may be accurate at times, but this is un-conceivable for
    my
    motorcycle to approach 205. Honda's RC211v, which is Honda's
    MotoGP race
    bike, 5 cyclinders and 268 horespower, just broke 200mph on the
    track within
    the last week. And we are talking about a 1/2 to 3/4 million
    dollar bike.
    And for you gear-heads, I had on Joe Rocket Boots, Shoei helmet,
    Leather
    gloves, Ballistic coat, and leather bottoms. Also, both of us
    were arrested,
    and no, the slower one did not get a warning, he was ticketed for
    111mph on
    a F4i. I hope this clears things up for everybody, I am just sick
    of
    everyone saying things about what they dont know, making me look
    like this
    horrific person. People speed, and if anyone knows anything about
    the "Flood
    Run" (which was the ride I was on, which by the way benefits the
    Gillettes
    Children Fund) I would be a hell of a lot more concerned about
    the 7,000
    bar-hopping motorcyclist out on the road. 99% of the people you
    hear things
    from are misinformed. If you have questions, I will answer them.
    And one
    last note, this is information you don't know, the pilot who
    clocked me, was
    clocking me, the F4i, and flying his plane at 110mph all at the
    same time.
    Think about that for a second.
