I will pay to not have this guy try it again and possibly endanger my family, not worried about him.

Reread the post, if 14 tickets were warranted, the officer did the right thing. I was not there so I do not know what the 14 tickets were for, when you find out we will decide if they were "applicable" or not I guess.

Shoot, I'm mad and I was not there! Each ticket carries a penalty, so it may keep him off the street for a few days longer.

And on today's bikes, almost any 1Kcc or bigger with the right computer programming will do this: right now they are supposedly  electronically limited to 186MPH. So name the manufacturer, including BMW.

I'm guessing that when the facts come out, it will be much like the "205mph" RC51 skywatch ticket several years ago.  As reported, the story just doesn't hold water.  Yeah, the guy probably was speeding, but getting an accurated 193mph clocking in the rain is somewhat unlikely, as well as some of the other details.

There have been several members here who have reportedly found their bikes speed limiter of 155mph but noone was calling for their heads on the chopping block. Is the extra 40mph this guy was doing that much more horrible???  WTF!!!
I read the news report yesterday and I may have forgotten it but I don't recall it saying he was riding in t-shirt, shorts and flip-flops. I thought that was pretty much the definition of squids. So how did he rate being a squid?
I am guessing a newer ZX-14 that had been modded a little to bypass the speed limiter wouldn't take long to go from a regular highway speed of 70 or 80 up to the 193 he was clocked at. He may have just seen a long stretch of open interstate and decided to open it up to see what it would do. Even the rain story could have been bs just to make up another ticket. 14 tickets is stupid and the cop was just piling on. 4 would have been sufficient, 2 would have been realistic, speeding and wreckless driving.
With the thousands of hard core criminal biker types out there giving bikers a bad name, I don't think this guy is worth worrying about as far as image goes.

   I'm with "Dweller"-I've hit 130-ish +/- several times-don't think I'll prolly ever go beyond 140 on the connie (Did 140 in my cage and still pulling). That said i've read a h*ll of a lot of threads about some serious MPHs in our little group. I also believe the "take it to the track stuff "....done it ,on bike & cage both   more fun than you'd think AND you'll learn quickly you are not and will not mess with top speed of any serious sports vehicle.

   I think that leaves long straights of public roads using "best judgements" unless of course you have access to The Flats or The Texas Mile.

    Its a bit nutty to me- but these thing are really fast Right??

I really want to do an all out speed run on my Connie. I have just never seen a road I am willing to try it on. It would have to be something like the salt flats or something where the likelihood of a critter or other thing is virtually zero. I have done 138 on a road not to far from my home. It is about a mile long straight with flat clear land on either side so no critters can come on the road without being seen. No places for Johnny Law to hide either! It isn't long enough or clear enough for much more than 140 on my Connie though.

After being pulled over, Anderson claimed that he was en route to a hospital to visit a patient. He was issued 14 traffic tickets and booked into the Ulster County jail in lieu of $1500 bond (he has since been released).
 
Anderson's motorcycle, a 2005 Suzuki, was impounded at the scene.

I thought radar didnt work well in rain?    Or maybe they used a laser?
