Motorcyclist Allegedly Broke Speed Limit By 140 MPH



<TEXT id=txt_posted>POSTED:</TEXT> 2:05 pm EDT September 21, 2004


<!--startindex-->WABASHA, Minn. -- A motorcyclist in Minnesota has been arrested for speeding -- while allegedly going faster than 200 mph.

The speed limit was 65 mph on U.S. Highway 61 near Wabasha. Police said Samuel Tilley was breaking that limit by 140 mph. They said a state patrol pilot who was flying overhead clocked Tilley doing 205 miles an hour while racing with another motorcyclist.

Pilot Al Loney said the bike was traveling nearly twice as fast as his plane. He radioed ahead to another state trooper, who pulled the two cyclists over. <TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 align=right border=0><TBODY><TR><TD></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

Only the faster one was arrested.

Tilley is charged with reckless driving and driving without a motorcycle license -- in addition to the speeding charge.

lol Did anyone see that episode of Real TV where a Police chopper was trying to keep up with some in what I think was a blue 'busa with FI.... It was amazing to see how quickly he pulled on that helicopter. Dude must've been crazy, but jeez what a rush to go that fast so close to the ground. He's lucky he made it out alive.

Imagine what it's like on the salt flats during top speed tests.

Anyone hear the story about the Y2K (Helicopter turbine powered motorcycle) where the guy was going 250+mph in a 65mph zone and was pulled over and given a $10,000 ticket. The owner of the Y2K sent a copy to the ticket to the manufacturer.
The bike is well capable of going over 300mph

As I recall, Jay Leno has one of them too.

The new Ford GT40 can do this too. If you go to Ford.com and dig around there is the commercial there where its all filmed...watch the HOW IT WAS MADE video and the pilot talks about how he couldn't keep up....

(watch the extra features, the one guy talks about how they had their scanner on and were listening to the cops calling in the mile marker like 10 miles behind them)
