World Fastest Production Road Glide

Apparently, I own it..
It was built in 2003

Last night I was "clocked" by a sheriff officer on Interstate 95 @ 133mph.


I was on I-95 last night (early this morning) on my way home from a night ride when I got off on my exit. Exit 87. I was sitting at the light at the bottom of my exit when a PATROL officer (on the cross traffic street) made a left turn at the light and pulled up to the front of my motorcycle, telling me, I needed to pull over to the side of the road because there was an officer on his way to talk to me.
I pulled over, turned my bike off, and took my helmet, gloves and glasses off and waited. Another officer (not the one I was waiting to "talk to") pulled up and the 3 of us began talking. About the bike, Harley Davidson bikes in general and baggers. About 5 minutes had passed when the 3rd officer showed up on the scene. He immediately walked up and looked at my bike. He said 100th Anniversary! I have a 100th Anniversary Road King. Have you had motor work done to it, because my Road King has never seen the speed I just clocked you at.
I asked, what speed is that? I just clocked you at 133mph...
I literally Laughed Out Loud...
I told him, I can PROMISE YOU, THIS motorcycle is mechanically and physically incapable of going 133mph. It is a 99.9% stock 88ci. True Duals is THE ONLY MODIFICATION that has been done. He continued with "you were the only motorcycle on the road"

After talking about motorcycles and asking me if I had been drinking. I told him no. He went back to his car. The first two officers were still with me at my bike, the first officer even said.. you do understand, I don't have a dog in this fight. When I clocked you, you were doing ZERO, because you were sitting at the light...

The "clocking" officer then made a comment to me...

Which is why I posted this in the DYNO section...

He told me,
If you go to Savannah HD and get a DYNO print out stating your motorcycle is NOT CAPABLE of running 133mph, I'll drop the ticket..

So I called Savannah HD this morning... it's a 4hr minimum at $85hr
$340 to DYNO my motorcycle..

They let me go.
No Breathalyzer
No Field Sobriety test
No Handcuffs for going 65 OVER THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT

To me, something just doesn't seem right about the whole stop and the MANDATED DYNO run for proof that he wants...

Can anyone tell me where I can find (If it exists) some literature stating the to speed for a stock 2003 Road Glide? Preferably from the manufacturer..'
The service writer looked up my chin and the HD database shows no motor work had been done to the bike. I purchased it from the original owner and I KNOW he did nothing other than Stage I and Rinehart True Duals...

I'm thinking if you were already stopped and off the bike he has nothing on you anyhow.

Huh, imagine my surprise to learn that this took place in Georgia. Have you checked to see in the Savannah HD service manager and the clocking officer have the same last name?

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Did he have a "lock" on you? I got out of a ticket because of that...ie: no lock. I always ask now and ask to see it. Sounds like the radar gun is out of wack.

Not only will a stock H-D Touring 88" not run 133 mph, neither will a stock 96", 103" or 110". I think I would have suggested to the two other officers on the scene that the "clocking" officer have his radar equipment checked for proper calibration...and if you were running 133 mph, you've got to share the Dyno sheet with us!

You should be able to get a dyno run not a tune for about $50. This would prove the top speed and give you HP/TQ #'s. The HD shop should be able to do a dyno run for you.

How much was the fine you were getting? The way I see it, here in CT, at the very minimum and at speeds 20mph over the posted limit that is a $350 ticket. More than likely though it's a not so fun luncheon date with a judge and or prosecuter and a lose of license for a minimum of 30 days if not more resulting in a massive insurance increase if not complete insurance cancelation. Regardless of who the cop is related to, it may be worth your while to prove that the bike can't do what it's being claimed it did.
