nope - I was wasn't near MN..
I am sure what happens. Swanson is correct it's not pretty.
Hair, teeth an eyeballs everywhere.
Not to mention the innocent people that may be involved in the accident.
I flew an EMS helicopter for a year an this type of MORON!! Pisses me off!
After reading about this, and discussion on motorcycle forums...I'm pretty sure the ticket will be thrown out. If it holds, it will mean a new land-speed record for a 1000cc bike - as even full-bore racing 1000s don't often see 200+MPH speeds.
He would have been liquified. Would you believe that this was the top story on the news, above the Rathergate scandal and other news? Then again...we are known for being liberals, but that is about to change.
but he didn't crash.
I doubt there was anything 'reckless' about it.
Driving at 205 MPH on public roads, regardless of your abilities or safety equipment, certainly qualifies as reckless.
And, fortunately for him, it was 'wreckless' as well!
HUH? Nothing reckless about operating a motorcycle or any other vehicle down a PUBLIC highway at 200 mph? You doubt there was anything reckless about that? Man...sit down an think about it for a minute. You're joking, right?
No, he is a biker - we have a different mentality - after all, we ride bikes don't we?
hey Rick!! wassup buddy? I've missed you!
Tell me P - would it be reckless to do a 12-second speed run down this road?
We have a saying in the Army: "That briefs well."
Saying "XXXmph over the speedlimit is reckless" briefs well, but is not an accurate picture of reality.
200mph - (Or even the 'real speed he was going, likely 170 or so) is DANGEROUS in there is a level of danger there which is likely higher than riding a bike at half or less than that speed.
RECKLESS on the other hand, would be if one were riding those speeds thru-in-around traffic of any variety.
The only traffic we know was present was 'another bike' and an airplane.
Not much, missed ya'll too. Would love to take a spin down that road - even on my SLOW hog. :teeth:
