Much better to speed at 150mph than 80mph

Is there a Ajay Lodhari, Amanda Flood or Sam Sanfilippo on the board? Congrats, you made the Chicago Tribune.

Ajay Lodhari

Ajay Lodhari and three fellow motorcyclists found an open stretch on Interstate Highway 94 in June and gunned their engines. Within minutes, Lodhari and one of his friends pulled off an exit. That's when three state police officers caught up to them.

The bikers were going so fast the troopers didn't even get a radar read. They asked Lodhari, who admitted it was 150 mph. He didn't know it, but that was the fastest anyone had been cited in four years of available data.

Lodhari, 24, of Kenosha, looks back with mixed emotions. He enjoyed the "adrenaline rush" and could have gone faster: "I had a whole other gear to go."

But he said it was stupid to go that fast, considering he could have been jailed, lost his job and "gotten in some really, really deep trouble."

Instead, he and his friend got court supervision. As far as his driving record goes, the incident never happened.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection

GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

Again, the more the Tribune reports on this stuff, the less we're likely to get off when we get caught.

When asked how fast I was going, I said "pretty quick". Then I was asked how fast "pretty quick" was, I responded "a little bit more than pretty slow".

Cop = puzzled look on face.

In the end = sqrly get ticket for "failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident".

Late 80's some group of guys with GSXR1100s would head out on 88 west of dekalb with two spotter vehicles equipped with CBs (remember them bandit) One vehicle would advance about 3-5 miles and report the to trail spotter. When clear the trailing spotter would launch the riders for a WFO run to catch the lead vehicle.

or so the rumour goes

NESBA 917 A
CWIRA 917

RS250 dsb
