    Default Speeding Ticket May Set Record

    A Minnesota motorcyclist may have hit a record for a speeding ticket: 205 mph.

    Minnesota State Patrol pilot Al Loney was flying over U.S. Route 61 near Washaba, part of a task force cracking down on this fall's "Flood Run," an informal motorbike ride that takes place twice a year along the Mississippi River.

    He looked down and saw two bikes racing at high speed, and when one shot ahead, Loney waited till the rider reached a white marker in the road. Then he clicked his stopwatch.

    A quarter mile and 4.39 seconds later, the rider reached another marker. Loney did the math: 205.11 miles per hour.

    "I was in total disbelief," Loney told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I had to double-check my watch because in 27 years I'd never seen anything move that fast."

    Samuel Armstrong Tilley, 20, had soon been pulled over and booked for reckless driving, driving without a motorcycle license and driving 140 mph over the posted speed limit of 65.
