That is messed up. If anything they should be charged kind of like parents that let their kids in cars and the kid dies from heat stroke.

How often do you drive through a neighborhood and see a a group of kids even out playing? It was clock work that after lunch or dinner the neighborhood will fill u with kids playing baseball, dodgeball, hide and seek. Now with computers and video games it is all gone also. I want to go back to the simpler times.

So yeah, okay, whatever.

Duh, he was referring to you flipping everyone off on your road trip afterward, as indicated by the specific quote.

I want to know what the fine will be for doing 140+. You never know it may be worth it some day. $200 and 4 points isn't all that bad.

With the right jury this guy could get off, except for the fact that he is a trooper.

Meef, If I were you I would write that family up for anything and everything I could.

Duh, so was Mark. He metaphoricaly flipped off all pedestrians. Perhaps a few in real life too. This was describing the anger/pain he was feeling for doing a good deed and it backfiring on him. I dig this shit. I readed that Phillip Shakespear dudes books.

When it's all said and done it all comes down to a serious lack of common sense in this world. I've ridden with Mark back when a stupid speeds. It wasn't down the center of town and it wasn't through a neighborhood. The punishment needs to fit the crime and circumstances.


In the mean time here's another video from Vinton County for you all to make fun of.

I speed too at times. I ride wheelies leaving most all stops unless I visually see an officer of the law. I do alot of stupid shit, the difference is if and when I get caught I won't wine about it, I will know it was just my time.

You fuckers have gotten me to go ATGATT but I draw the line at pop a wheelies!

lol

Of course the news has yet to say anything of the bike cops yet......oh the drama!

I did find this in a Google search:

"Both men face misdemeanor speeding violations, but not citations of reckless operation or street racing. Discretion on those matters rests in the hands of the law enforcement officer who initiated the stop, according to Davis and Newark Law Director Doug Sassen."

Doesn't 147-149mph seem reckless?
