205mph Speeding Ticket

205 mph on a honda RC51

Did he or didn’t he? Minnesota State Patrol claim they clocked a teenager by the name of Samuel Armstrong Tilley speeding at 205mph over a measured quarter mile on his Honda RC51 motorbike.

A regular RC51 can “only” go 165mph, so either something was wrong with the speed measurement or Tilley made some major modifications to his bike.

The 200mph+ club for motorcyclists is an exclusive club, achieving 200mph over a quarter mile is something usually reserved for well planned events at places like the bonneville salt flats.

If Tilley keeps behaving like this he will be up for a Darwin Award soon.
