I read this article concerning the top 20 speeding tickets issued in Texas last year. Interestingly, but not surprisingly 13 of the 20 were motorcycles.

In Moto GP, you win money. Going 181mph on the street can cost you money, a lot of money, and probably your license. But I've been guilty of going close to that speed in my younger days so I'm not one to judge.

I can see that. HP to weight ratio most cars can't go that fast. This is the top 20 list.

You also need tire that can take the speed safely.

I think #12 & 13 were riding together.

I doubt any Harleys were used as chase vehicles.
In Dubai however, they do have some good ones but don't use them as chase vehicles.
