Motorcyclist clocked going 193 mph on NY highway (http://news.yahoo.com/motorcyclist-clocked-going-193-mph-ny-highway-113500876.html)

ROSENDALE, N.Y. (AP) Authorities say a 28-year-old man in upstate New York has been charged with driving his motorcycle at nearly 200 mph on a highway in the rain.
State police say a trooper clocked Anthony Anderson of Poughkeepsie driving at 193 mph around 8 p.m. Wednesday in the southbound lanes of Interstate 87 just south of Albany the same stretch of road where another motorcyclist was spotted doing 166 mph earlier this month.
The trooper was able to get a description of the high-performance bike and alerted nearby patrols.
Troopers eventually stopped Anderson in the town of Rosendale. He told them he was headed to a hospital to visit a patient.
Anderson was issued 14 traffic tickets, including one for speeding.
It couldn't be immediately determined if he had a lawyer.

I think it just advertises how insanely in-accurate their clocking method/radar guns are.

I'd love to educate this guy with a 2x4 as to how to ride in a safe and cautious manner. Dipshits don't under stand that if they do shit like this eventually someone will start crusading to get all cycles neutered for 'our protection'
