GREENVILLE, N.Y. (AP) — Authorities say four motorcyclists in upstate New York were clocked driving nearly 140 mph on an interstate and issued speeding tickets.

State police say the four men registered 138 mph on a trooper’s radar gun in a 65-mph zone on Interstate 84 on Sunday morning in Greenville. The town is on the New Jersey border 60 miles northwest of New York City.
