Re: clocked at 183 MPH during chase......wow!

They never say where the clocked him at that speed, and they bust him at home in the middle of the night after he's left the bike somewhere else. Sounds fishy to me. I would like to know how they verified the 183 mph and what he was riding. Yes, there are absolutely bikes on the market that will do that, but it's virtualy impossible to get them to that speed on the street without a bit of straight distance and a pretty clear roadway.

The shortest distance between two points is for people who don't ride!
