Hmmmm....the old Honda I had 35 years ago would top out at about 85MPH. Think that cop had a itchy fast finger on that stop watch and may have needed some oxygen. Guy with good lawyer should beat the charge by asking that a un-bias biker cop test the bike using radar, and submit top end speed to the Judge. Even souped up bikes would be hard pressed to get to 200MPH.

I got clocked once on the wide open desert flats of northern Arizona, by a state trooper for doing 85MPH when the national speed limit was 55MPH. I had two radar detectors and a radar deflector and the cop had to admit she didn't use her radar but a stop watch. We talked about the ridiculous forced speed law and after joking about her female hand cream caused her finger to slip around on the stop watch button, she let me go with a warning.

We're hearing a lot of stories about such riders in Chicago.

One hit a truck and was dragged for awhile. Others have hit walls, light posts, cars, etc. All DOA. Sounds very DUMB.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
