Only thing captured is video of unofficial German record

Updated: 9:16 a.m. ET June 13, 2005 BERLIN -

A motorcyclist captured on film by German police racing at 155 mph on a road near Berlin has set a new unofficial national record for speeding, Germany's Bild newspaper reported Monday.


Traveling more than twice the speed limit of 62 miles per hour, the motorcycle rider was caught on film in a police radar trap near Bad Freienwalde outside Berlin but authorities don’t know who the speeder was because motorcycles have no front license plates.

“We are not able to identify him,” said Lothar Wiegand, a spokesman for the Brandenburg Transport Ministry in Potsdam.

While German motorists who break speed limits are identified by their license plates in police photos and receive their fines by mail shortly after their infractions, motorcycle riders often escape unpunished.

Well, I know in NY they must STOP the chase if a bike hits 100mph or greater. They even have to stop the chase in cars if the car goes 125mph or greater, I think. It may have changed down to 100 though.

I blew past five motorcycle cops on "TransMountain Rd" the other day, it's a road that goes over Franklin Mountain State Park here in Texas with a buncha twisties on it. They were all sitting at the entrance to the park, one was actually on the bike, I did like 127 right past them. That's how I figured out the shift light comes on at 125mph!

be careful about the stories you tell on the net.
It might come back to haunt you.
