Found this on a different site.....

copy and pasted for ya.

All right, I was the one who got the ticket and it is time to clear some things up. For one, I was riding a 2003 Honda RC51, "heavily modified" with 2 Brothers slip on pipes and, well thats all the mods I have unless you count the "I stop for wh***s" sticker. Next, the bike wasn't impounded, it was towed so it wouldn't be in the roadway. Ok, on to the tickets. 205...uh no. I am personal friends with the owner of "Hitman Motorsports" and tonight, Sept. 22, we did a top speed run on his dyno, in 6th gear, and maxed nearly 60mph slower than I was arrested for. The "no motorcycle endorsement" is because my licence was expired, I do have a motorcycle endoresement for all you people digging into me about that. The stop watch method may be accurate at times, but this is un-conceivable for my motorcycle to approach 205. Honda's RC211v, which is Honda's MotoGP race bike, 5 cyclinders and 268 horespower, just broke 200mph on the track within the last week. And we are talking about a 1/2 to 3/4 million dollar bike. And for you gear-heads, I had on Joe Rocket Boots, Shoei helmet, Leather gloves, Ballistic coat, and leather bottoms. Also, both of us were arrested, and no, the slower one did not get a warning, he was ticketed for 111mph on a F4i. I hope this clears things up for everybody, I am just sick of everyone saying things about what they dont know, making me look like this horrific person. People speed, and if anyone knows anything about the "Flood Run" (which was the ride I was on, which by the way benefits the Gillettes Children Fund) I would be a hell of a lot more concerned about the 7,000 bar-hopping motorcyclist out on the road. 99% of the people you hear things from are misinformed. If you have questions, I will answer them. And one last note, this is information you don't know, the pilot who clocked me, was clocking me, the F4i, and flying his plane at 110mph all at the same time. Think about that for a second.

If he can prove that he wasn't going 205, he will probably get out of the ticket all together.

$215 is great for that speed. I would hate to see his insurance if hes convicted!

Does anyone know how this case ended up? Seems like it should clearly be thrown out, but he might have pleaded it down...

This whole incident happened less than a week ago. I am sure that it has not ended up anything yet.
Date of offence is marked out, but court date is 10-24-04. I think its safe to say its all well over and gone by now.

old news. If I remember correctly he didn't fight it. Just took an ass raping. that shit should have gotten tossed with the dyno test and anyone who would actually believe that an rc51 could go over 200 is retarded. Don't know for sure... but confident he got raped on his charges. If someone heard differently then let me know.

That's what I remember of this incident. Surprising that he chose not to fight it. Most of us were in awe when it happened and of course the brand touting started when it was said that a Honda broke the 200mph barrier. Too bad he didn't fight it.

If this was in Florida and the helicopter crashed, would he have been responsible and sentence to 30 years of jail?
You joke, but that isn't any more absurd than the real-life story.

I bet you could forget to turn off your brights, blind some drunk a**hole, who then runs off the road, and you go to jail. in florida... :barf:

If I only had to pay $215 for that ticket, I wouldn't bother fighting it either.
You know thats an awfully good point.

But the precedent it set is pretty scary.

But a wreckless driving ticket on your record isnt good, especially if its a case like this guys......depends on the position but I would prob. pay it......can he still have a bike?(legally)
