You mean the cops might have *gasp* lied?



Careful. You might p*** off some of the fainthearted socialists around here.

Lucky for the cops they have such things as radios and helicopters.



Laser is easily accurate to 1 mph (really much higher) as is radar and the timing strips/VASCAR (which can be done from that pesky helo, a stationary or moving cruiser.)

Awful steep hill.



The only way the HDs I've owned would do 142mph would be to strap a JATO bottle to one or drop it out of a C-130.

At least he knows how he'll be spending his weekends for the next 6 months. Oh the joy.

I don't think the ol' batwing fairwing was wind tunnel tested at 142.

$20,000 bail? Maybe he had one of the children he was supposed to be protecting on the pillion.

Loathe as I am to be associated with someone who calls himself BIGDX and thinks witty reparte consists of talking about bagging your wife,he does sometimes make good points. And his point here is cogent....the same folk who attack anti helmet law folk as being irresponsible also seem to be the ones who think high speeds on public roads is OK. this is sloppy thinking....riding without a helmet endangers yourself.....riding 142 on a public road endangers others as well. Which is the most irresponsible behaviour.?

Don't tell Dave Campos that. He pulled 322mph at Bonneville on his HD. Although I am sure it wasn't quite stock ...
