137MPH and B U S T E D

137 mph fame
August 8, 2007
REESE, Mich. -- A motorcyclist arrested whizzing through town at 137 mph told police he was just trying to be punctual, authorities said Tuesday.
The 37-year-old claimed he was "late for work."
A police officer stopped the biker at 3:35 a.m. about 80 miles northwest of Detroit. Authorities said the man had earned a spot on their bulletin board.
"We have a 'Wall of Fame' here in the report room, and when anybody arrests someone traveling over 100 mph, we mark it down," Tuscola County Sheriff's Lt. James Giroux said.
"This 137 mph is the new record," he added.
The man was in the county jail Tuesday awaiting arraignment on a charge of fleeing and eluding police.

I can do 137 on the Triumph, and at half the price of a Ducati. I can hold my little finger up as I ride. But I cannot do the Chills fingerless glove wave, that takes skill/class that only a Porsche owner can attain.

i think if the 250 hit 137mph it would instantly combust and turn into a pile of dust. Some things are just not meant to go that fast
