Seattle Times: Eugene police: Motorcyclist going at top speed of 164 mph
EUGENE, Ore.—Oregon State Police say they've never seen a faster speeder—164 mph on Interstate 5.
And on a motorcycle.
And the evidence of the precise speed came from a video camera attached to the bike and aimed at the speedometer.
Senior Trooper Jeff Leighty says he was off-duty Sunday north of Eugene when the motorcycle zoomed between his unmarked car and another vehicle.
He says he radioed the license plate to troopers down the road.
Police arrested 37-year-old Eugene resident Ben Howard Kelley on a charge of reckless driving.
Leighty calls it “absolute insanity.”
He adds that some speeders have boasted of going faster, but this is the top speed the police can verify.
