It's been discussed or repeated before, usually 205 times. "Search" function is your friend.

The history is this: A rider got a ticket for going 205 MPH. For a couple weeks, everyone and his brother posted a thread without looking to see if it had been posted before. Closely related to the death of Rick James. As in, "I'm still dead, Bitch!"

There is a post up earlier in this thread about a guy getting a ticket for going 205 mph, and everybody was posting the story here, without searching first. 205 means redundant, repetitive, we heard it before. Asking what 205 means is 205.

Oh, I get it, 205 x 2 + 10 = 420. Makes sense, thanks. Hope that helps.
