nowBuzz up!CHESAPEAKE, Va. --
CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) A Virginia motorcyclist whose throttle was stuck open has had his conviction for driving at least 130 mph thrown out in court.

The Virginian-Pilot reports a judge overturned 27-year-old Frank Parker's conviction on charges of reckless driving and eluding police.

The Virginia Beach resident says he was heading home from work in August when the nightmare occurred on U.S. 58. During the incident Parker was involved in a 2-mile police chase. He was able to bring the bike to a stop after holding in the clutch.

Parker got the conviction overturned last week after he produced a repair order from a motorcycle shop.

Parker had bought the motorcycle about three months before to save gas. Now he says he's just happy to be alive.

I always go 2 mies and crack 130 MPH, and like at least 2 squad cars behind me before I think I may have a mechanical problem. Wonder what that mechanic got paid?
Does Toyota make motorcycles?

But, good for him for squeaking out of a ticket. I'll bet I've already paid his fine through my transgressions.

Heh! That was my own first thought!

Two miles is just far-enough to think to yourself: "Self, that highway appears to be moving-by AWFULLY fast, and those Officers in my mirror look AWFULLY P.O.'d - what kinda story can you come up with to get our dyck outta the fire?"

Its.......A FACT!
