Motorcycle hits 165 mph in two-state highway chase
From Staff Reports

PORTSMOUTH — A speeding motorcyclist evaded police in two states Sunday night.

Maine State Police, who at one point clocked the bike at 165 miles per hour on the Maine Turnpike, chased the motorcyclist for approximately one hour with help from several local police departments.

The motorcyclist was first reported speeding on Interstate 495 in New Gloucester, Maine, near the state police barracks. During the chase, the bike circled through several towns, including Kittery, York, Berwick, Kennebunk, Wells, Biddeford and Saco.

Maine State Police called off their chase at 7:32 p.m. for safety reasons due to heavy traffic in the area of the Kittery outlet malls on Route 1.

Portsmouth police picked up the chase briefly when the motorcyclist crossed the state line into New Hampshire. The bike reportedly went through the city in approximately 65 seconds.

Sgt. Steven DuBois said Portsmouth police lost contact with the bike as it was headed toward North Hampton on Route 1.

Maine state police said there were conflicting reports as to exactly what type of bike the motorcyclist rode, and they were unable to get license plate information.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call (207) 871-7755.

I have to wonder if the guy knew he was being chased. When you're going that fast it isn't easy to tell if there are flashing lights behind you.

This dude obviously has balls of steel and no brains what so ever. But like lawnmower said at least the cops lost!

A very small part of me cheers...but imagine a family crossing the street in a group getting blasted by a guy doing 165. Or any other accident you can imagine at 165 mph.

The kinetic energy produced by a 500 lb bike going 165 is 629,xxx joules.

If that bike passed something that could convert his kinetic energy into Ft/Lbs he would make 853,495 ft/lbs the instant he passed.

Thats a whole lot of destruction if he makes one mistake....

Only thing he did was piss off some cops, so when the next guy on a sport bike is crusing by at 5mph over, he's gonna get popped. I don't think he would have gotten away from the troopers in FL, they have some fast cars.
