    State Police say two motorcyclists were going 160 mph on a highway in central New Hampshire.

    Trooper Charles George was patrolling Interstate 93 in Ashland around 1:30 Monday afternoon when he saw two bikes speeding toward him. He recorded their speed at 118 mph in the 70 mph zone. 

    Twenty-six-year old Christopher Grant of Manchester and 25-year-old Brandon Clark of Weare were ticketed for reckless driving. 

    At the time of the initial arrest, a GoPro video camera was seized. As of result of the evidence obtained, warrants were then issued for the two men on a new charge of reckless conduct. This charge is based on the actions of the two men prior to being stopped, at times passing vehicles at speeds up to 160 mph. 

    Grant and Clark were released and are scheduled to return to court on November 19.

    A message left at a number listed in Grant's name was not immediately returned Monday. A number for Clark could not be found.
