Oh, he was being irresponsible all right, but for those of us who *aren't* fixated on defending the rights of all mankind, one naked head at a time, that was obvious enough that it didn't need to be stated.

Man, that Bergen county lock-up is tough. I hear they make the inmates pump gas at the Mahwah Chevron if they don't toe the line.

The article's pretty sketchy but there's one thing we can be sure of. This guy wasn't riding a Harley.

It is a bad thing because it shows that the POH-leese don't have the fastest vehicles and that not everybody is a sheep-like follower.



But $20,000 for bail - c'mon. All he did was cause the cops to burn up some gas. Maybe he was trying to get to an emergency child welfare situation. Give him a medal.

Why not?

Do their guns only display speed at 5mph increments?

Perhaps they were using the visual marker/counting technique, just like with the fellow on the RC51 that was clocked at 200+mph?

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.)

Re: It could have been on a down hill dude ...

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.

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 ... ;-)
