    Gone in "6" seconds Own3d ....speed limit broken by over 140mph !!!

    Motorcyclist Allegedly Broke Speed Limit By 140 MPH



    POSTED: 2:05 pm EDT September 21, 2004


    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.


    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.
    The Official MUST READ OF THE MONTH:
    /forum/showp...7&postcount=27
    Turbo hype + Turbo lag - Turbo power = VTEC
    The MSP doesn't really "hesitate". It's just unsure of it's movement.


    Now for the fun stuff!
    Performance mods are: Apex 3in open j-pipe, Injen, H2O Intercooler Sprayer (I swear it makes a slight difference), Kartboy shifter bushings/exhaust hangers, Corksport SS Clutch line, NSN Motorsports Throttle Body Spacer, Turbohoses Aluminum Hardpipes, BoostSciences Dual Stage Boost Controller, DSM AFC v. 2, Turbohoses SMIC, Front and Rear EBC Dimpled and Slotted Rotors, EBC Yellow Stuff pads, AWR MTX Motor Mounts, Street Unit Intake Manifold, QTP Electric Cut-out, AWR trailing arms, GT Spec V brace, Evolv Rear Sway Bar Brackets, MAM Exhaust Manifold, TWM Short Throw Shifter, MAM 60mmTB
    Mods that have nothing to do with making the car quicker are: Alpine CDA-9855, JL Audio 12w3, Stewart Warner Boost Gauge with way more boost than I'll EVER use, HKS TT, AEM WB O2 Sensor

    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....
