The Rocketeer

A motorcyclist was clocked doing 205mph on MN highway 61, near Wabasha. The biker was spotted by a police aircraft, which notified highway patrol. The biker was cited for speeding 140mph over the posted 65mph limit. The citation may be a Minnesota record. Kind of makes you wonder how much he's going to be fined. The article doesn't say, but I believe that 20+mph over the limit is an automatic trip to jail.

The best part? The kid is the son of a sheriff's deputy. Think Dad's gonna bail him out? Me, neither.

Ironically, the incident comes to light only a day after the St. Paul Pioneer Press published an article about the rising number of people caught doing 100mph or more on the state's highways.
