I like that bit about...... "unless he was wearing the kind of protective gear professional motorcycle racers wear, he was courting death at 200mph." Whew..... good thing he was wearing good clothes, otherwise who knows what could happen! (tongue-in-cheek). :lol:

:roll: Show me an RC-51 with a 4 second quarter mile an over 200mph
top speed, and I will buy it :roll: I will park it next to my 250mph Harley.
Geezer :capwin:
I am a firm believer that all motorcycles should have speed limiters set to 200 m.p.h. and not one bit more!! :shock:

Remember though they had been running close to 100 mph and being tracked by this a/c before the kid nailed it. Don't know what an RC51 can run, but I would think unless he had a fair amount of mods 200+ would be a stretch.

But here appears to be the real story from the kid who got the tickets..

I have to agree with the guy in the CNN article in that the trooper in the sky had an itchy trigger finger. If you think about it, that's a piss poor way to get clocked. I'd like to have seen a radar readout to compare it to.
