ROCHESTER — It was warm Sunday, apparently warm enough to break out the motorcycles.
It may not have been too cold, but two motorcyclists were going way too fast, according to New Hampshire State Police.
Two Barrington men face multiple charges after they were stopped on the Spaulding Turnpike, driving well above the posted speed limit, police said.
William Emerson, 22, was allegedly traveling at 125 mph. His companion, 24-year-old Dennis Pinson was clocked going 118 mph, according to police. Trooper Craig Gagne arrested the two at 11:20 a.m. Sunday, with the help of another trooper. The two men were clocked by laser, police said.
Pinson faces charges of reckless driving, driving after suspension and misuse of plates.
Emerson is charged with reckless driving.
Pinson and Emerson are scheduled to be arraigned in Rochester District Court on March 6.
The N.H. State Police Special Enforcement Unit regularly patrols the state during commuter traffic periods and holiday travel times.
