    134 mph


    Maine State Police nab pair going 134 mph on I-295


    Article Date: Sunday, February 17, 2008
    GARDINER, Maine (AP) _ A lot of speedometers top out at 120 mph, but Maine State Police say they clocked a pair of Massachusetts college students doing 134 along Interstate 295 in the Gardiner area.

    Using laser equipment, troopers spotted a 2008 Mercedes SUV and a 2008 Volkswagen GTI just north of Cobbossee Stream. The vehicles were pulled over and the drivers, both Babson College students, were cited for criminal speed.

    Police say the men then proceeded to the mountains for a weekend of skiing at Sugarloaf.

    The fastest Ive ever gone on my bike was 140. Nice and legally at NHIS. Course, Ive never done 135 on the highway ever. At all. Not once. But the fastest Ive ever been was legally. So there.

    Not to sound like a squid here, but to their credit, it was in GARDINER, MAINE, there is nothing there, NOTHING! Probably more runoff than NHMS I've never been on an NESR ride that ever touched that speed either :

    maybe in the summer, space between snowbanks is getting narrow this winter, frost heaves are growing too

    I might add too, that frozen compacted snowbanks are pretty much just as hard as a concrete wall, snow depths on the other side of the snowbanks is making roads the preferable place for deer to travel

    not necessarily. I can't remember the way the law is written exactly, but there is no statutory right of arrest for going any speed in MA. In ME, however, they CAN arrest for 20 mph over the speed limit (that's any speed limit, highway or back road)...

    And summonseseses are wonderful things. You don't have to chase the bastard, but they still get charged, fined, punished, etc. just the same as an arrest. Best part is, they think they got away with it, until they get a letter in the mail from the court... muahaha.

    EDIT: M.G.L. - Chapter 90, Section 21
    ^ soooo sick of reading M.G.L. But, Chapter 90 Section 21 lays out the rights of arrest without a warrant regarding motor vehicle violations, nowhere does it state that a PO has the right of arrest for speed alone.

    Wow... It's stories like that that make me glad I don't live surrounded by ski resorts anymore. Those types are the same ones who don't respect the area they stay in....

    Re: 134 mph

    I went to 100 MPH with my Ninja 250 once. Not cool. I did the same again with my 500, a little better, but still not that cool. I did 100 MPH with my car, one of my Michelin tire blew up, I think it was a sign.

    Re: 134 mph

    fastest I have even been (I was a passenger, not the driver) was in a 1968 Plymouth GTX 426 hemi on the Adirondack Northway back in 1971, I won't say how fast other than I never want to go that fast in a cage again and the Mercedes SUV & VW would have been a long way back in our rear view mirror

    Oh yeah...I forgot that one...I went to 200 km/h (about 160-165 mph if I'm correct?) driving my husband's '98 Eagle Talon, with the big mitsubishi turbo charged engine. THAT was f*ckin cool. ZOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

    Wow. I almost got arrested for 81 in a 50 in Vermont. I'm shocked those kids didn't get arrested and have their vehicles impounded.
