maybe hte cops were on street bikes too?

i dunno... most people i know that have street bikes will outrun the cop if they're giong that fast. maybe he was kinda new to biking and too scared to try and outrun them.

nevermind... i read the link.

well... cop cars CAN go fast. especially once they're already going fast, their cars are equipped to take off when already doing 80 or so.

but 205? im guessing the kid on the bike was inexperienced.

he was caught by a choppey in the sky timing the cycle between white lines...many think the cop had a itchy finger to calculate such a speed. The kid was racing another biker along hiway 61 east of St. Paul when he sped up away from his rival and that in when the chopper starting his timing...i've driven that hiway many times--not exactly a dragstrip--and all I can say HE'S CRAZY!
