Man gets $1,103 speeding ticket

LAPINE — A Washington state man has a hefty speeding ticket to pay after getting clocked at 130 mph on his new motorcycle in Central Oregon.

Sixty-one-year-old Gregory Zaser, of the wealthy Lake Washington enclave of Medina, east of Seattle, told the trooper who pulled him over Monday that he'd just purchased the Ducati bike and wanted to see what it could do.

The ticket for going 130 mph in a 55 mph zone is $1,103 — that's the automatic fine for going more than 100 mph in Oregon. Oregon State Police Lt. Steve Mitchell says Zaser also could have his license suspended.
