A motorcyclist in San Diego was caught doing 181 miles per hour on a San Diego freeway and is now facing felony charges of evading, reckless driving, street racing and being an unlicensed driver, according to NBC

The driver, 32 year old Scott Meiner, was riding in the HOV lane back on March 29 when officers chose not to pursue him due to the speed he was traveling at. He was seen near the Mira Mesa Boulevard exit at the time, before running a red light on Mira Mesa Boulevard. 

CHP spokesman Salvador Castro said: “Our units were conducting a lidar incident and, basically, they got this motorocycle going 181 and weren’t able to catch up to it.”

He continued: “So we forwarded all the information to our investigators, and a couple of months later, they were able to identify the [rider] and link them to several street-racing and reckless-driving incidents, and also running from several police officers from various law enforcement agencies on numerous occasions.”

Meiner’s Facebook page lists “motorcycles, golf, cars and work” as his interests. It also shows him selling a Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10 motorcycle, which retails for $15,399. That bike has a top speed of 180 mph. Meiner wrote on his Facebook paged that he is “Training to circuit race in the Isle of Man TT and MGP by ’22.”

Even at the famous Isle of Man Tourist Trophy race, however, the top lap speed is 135.4 miles per hour, set in 2018. 

Meiner was taken into custody on Tuesday after investigators executed search warrants. He was booked into the San Diego County Jail and released on Wednesday of last week. 

No word if the bike was on “Autopilot” and if he plans on using “unintended acceleration” as a defense…
