MOTORCYCLIST CLOCKED AT 122 MPH

A 23-year-old motorcyclist en route to see his girl friend was clocked at 122 mph on Route 246 at 5:52 p.m. Wednesday.

Wyoming County Sheriff's Deputy Lance Hanes said he was operating a stationary radar check when a purple motorcycle zoomed by headed south. Hanes gave chase and was able to catch up with the cyclist because of traffic conditions.

"He got behind two vans and couldn't pass them because of oncoming traffic," Hanes said. "He pulled over when I signaled him. He was polite and offered no problem. He said he was in a hurry to see his girl."

Hanes issued the cyclist, a Brockport resident and a student, a ticket for going 122 mph in a 55-mph zone and for operating the racing-style motorcycle with an expired inspection sticker.
