Pure supidity. The area he was in is a 2 lane highway, with little farm houses scattered here and there. Damned lucky the fool didn't kill somebody.....

Looks like if i don't see a cop it'* still not a good idea to speed out of wabasha....I don't think that could ever hold in court because the speed was "estimated." I don't think that you could judge a speed off of a stop watch or watch and get an accurate I dea. Of course ya know 4.39 sec a 1/4 is f*&$in' MOVIN!!! I also don't think the cops could have figured that out right away like it sounds. I dunno, either way that kids not gonna have that bike for long that'* for sure.

I was reading about it...It seemed to say that they were driving then decided to race and somehow got from whatever to 205 in 4secs. Unless they started at 150+ I wanna see pics of that bike!

Also "I had to double-check my watch because in 27 years I'd never seen anything move that fast." What the heck watch does he have that reads 100th of a second?

He has a specially calibrated stop watch that they issue to all "Flying Cops" (air patrol). Seen his on TV and saw one in person once when we had a conference with the local police when I was an MP. Pretty neat toy, but lots of boring training to learn how to use it.

It'll definitely hold up in court.....

What a moron. Fools like that give all motorcycle riders a bad reputation, especially because he didn't even have a license!

I'll go with the latter. Experience would come from actually being licensed to operate a motorcycle, and doing so responsibly... which certainly didn't seem to be the case.
