Can't we forget these stories till they catch someone going like 200. 144 yawn.

Good thing his bike wasnÂ’t loud and he was wearing a helmet, otherwise he would have been irresponsible Â…

I used to think this was fast. Heck, 100 used to be considered fast. Now even HD/Buell make bikes that will do 144?



Yep, it's still illegal. But, the shock factor is totally gone. "yes, yes, ho hum, 144 mph, big deal!"



As a casual observer of society, I worry that legislators are over due to step in and put the brakes on fast bikes?



I am especially worried after seeing the hype in the MC press about new bikes that are on their way and producing 170+ HP right out of the box.



How much faster can OEMs make their bikes before government says enough?



I worry that each and every stunt such as this is nothing more than another nail in the coffin being built to bury our riding freedoms.

Yawn... not really a story. It's not like cops don't stop autos doing 100 all the time and it was only 144 mph on a bike that's built for it.

Bad original story. No details listed there at all. I must agreed with the above - 144 is no longer fast. I think my cruise control will keep that speed up. Yes - good thing the pipes were not loud...

Heck, he was on the Interstate! He was probably keeping up with the soccer moms.



We'll probably find out he was in his "Squid" uniform, and when the Cops saw him, his wife-beater shirt was blown up over his back and his baggies were pulled down - and they thought he was moonin' them!
