High-speed motorbike escape foiled by slow-crawl traffic5/4/2012
Motorcycles are so frequently and unfairly derided as the transport of the young and stupid -- though in this case of a 25-year-old New York rider clocked going 166 mph on the New York State Thruway, it happens to fit. Nikkolaus McCarthy was clocked by cops at that incredible speed -- for the record, that's three times a 55 mph speed limit, plus one -- but they couldn't catch up until heavy congestion slowed him down. One officer said on the record of the fleeing motorcyclist: "there was no way we could catch him at that speed." Hey, Officer Barbrady, stop encouraging more idiots.
What's the fastest you’ve ever exceeded the speed limit?
