Two thoughts I have on it:
First, kudos to the officers involved for neither employing “professional courtesy” or being put off about not getting it, as sometimes happens. Clearly everyone involved acted very professionally.
Second, the whole concept that 149 mph is necessarily risky or awful or any of that sort of thing is just such nonsense. Even in a car in many areas there are many places where it’s perfectly safe if there is no traffic. On a motorcycle, even more so.
If you counted all the times that I’ve been to 150 on a bike and then perhaps within seconds back down to 60 or whatever, and gave me 6 months suspension for each time, I’d be suspended for lifetimes to come.
There’s nothing to it. It takes only seconds to get up there and seconds back down if need be.
The law can be an ass. (I’m not referring to the officers, I’m referring to the process and treating given speeds as supposedly being inherently reckless.)
