AirHawk great story.. Atlanta Fox 5 did great job on it. Fair and balanced reporting(too bad the national cable FoxNews isn't watching). On a 45 mph road with a curve that has 25 mph recomended speed limit if you are going over 60 you are nuts in my opinion. Have I've done it? Can't say for sure cause I was too busy to look down at the speedometer. But after a couple of tickets from some King Co. motorcycle officiers I slowed down.

I don't buy the Sheriff's opinon it can't be stopped. In WA the state patrol would end it.. I think they could solve this problem with a few BMW police bikes, some police cars to block the road and maybe a cheap air surveallance by a Cessna 150 or 172..

Also in WA you get stopped going 20 over the speed limit it's speeding and reckless driving, they arrest you and impound your bike... Bet you they don't do that in GA..

Do they have troopers on bikes?.. In WA state the troopers work in teams of 3, 2 guys on bikes and one in the car. Probably have some air support if needed. In WA the State Patrol would end it I guarantee it. also the laws up here are real tough you get thrown in jail and lose your bike..

Not what I heard. I've seen 2 videos of Busa's hitting 200 mph. One was an early model with the "speed control" removed. The other was a Busa on some nitro.. Busa's can go over 180? ask longride.

Must be a political leadership problem then.

I did the same i.e but I said "Thank you sir"

It's matter of will then. The GA authorities don't have the will to do so.. Wait till some cruiser couple or a young family in small car gets killed by a couple of out of control sport bikes. Suddenly they will get the will to stop.. Guess it's a red-state leadership thing i.e. they have to wait till innocent people to learn the hard way (e.g. Iraq, Katrina, etc.).

Dumb hicks Blue state leaders tend to use intelligence to figure out if things are going to be a problem in the future rather than waiting for it to happen.

Re: Must be a political leadership problem then.

I'm sure things will change on Tuesday... :) You can fool all the people some of the time (Americans) and some of the people (GTPB red states) all of the time but you can't fool all the the people all of the time (Blue-state residents).. Help is on the way... Call it the Blue Wave..
