BERLIN (Reuters) - A motorcyclist captured on film by German police racing at 155 miles per hour on a road near Berlin has set a new unofficial national record for speeding, Bild newspaper reported Monday.

Travelling more than twice the speed limit, the motorcycle rider was caught on film in a police radar trap near Bad Freienwalde outside Berlin but authorities don't know who the speeder was because motorcycles have no front license plates.

"We are not able to identify him," said Lothar Wiegand, a spokesman for the Brandenburg Transport Ministry in Potsdam.

While German motorists who break speed limits are identified by their license plates in police photos and receive their fines by mail shortly after their infractions, motorcycle riders often escape unpunished.

I assume they are talking about Germany only, wasn't some guy caught in Minnesota over 200mph on a Honda?

Re: German speeding record (LDH)

I got pulled over yesterday on that now famous 205 mile stretch of road in Southern Minnesota. When the local sheriff asked me why he pulled me over I said "For doing 205?" He chuckle and said "Umm, no. 70". He did let me go with a warning. :)
