Biker caught at speed trap, sliding. (in Off-topic)

When he noticed the speed trap, this biker tried to reduce his speed by braking hard. The result is this police photo, a ticket for doing 137 km/h in a 120 zone, a broken wrist and no doubt a lot of damage to his motor cycle...

that's not very nice :/

Did he get the ticket for the speed he was going before or after he came off?

Bet he was glad for his leathers.

HLA ftw? what does 137 km translate to in English? :P

QBJohnnywas April 30 2008 10:02 AM EDT

85.127 853 337 miles per hour.

Flamey April 30 2008 10:02 AM EDT

85 mph.

He was going 82 in a 72, basically.

Hah, ironic story:

I went to get GTA 4 at midnight the night before it's release. On my way home, i had my cruise set to the speed limit, low and behold, and cop flys past me going the opposite direction, he pulls a U-turn to follow me (why i will NEVER know, stupid cops and their quotas). Anywho, i was driving over the hill and then back down to the stoplight ahead, turned right before the cop came over that hill. Drove past the first street and then into my driveway, parked and turned my lights off. I then noticed that same damn cop pulled down that first street thinking i went that way, lol. EVADED, HAH!

So, ironic? I thought so... End of story.

On *this* topic though, i want to see this video on "Cops" haha.

where I live a cop wouldn't even have noticed a motorcycle going 85 in a 75 zone, a) its incredibly common b) everybody including the cops ignore the speed limits.

I believe this is in fact the latest craze. No?

Extreme Riding!

137 was the speed he was doing while sliding. He was going much faster before he decided to use his front brake ;)

This answers one of lifes great unanswered questions.

"When a biker falls of his bike and no one is there to see, does he really fall of his bike..?"

Ahhh, memories! I've done that too, used the front brake when going too fast. I did 2 flips into a tree, was a pretty good crash from what I'm told
