REESE — A motorcyclist charged with speeding through town at 137 mph told police that he was just trying to be punctual, authorities said yesterday.

The 37-year-old man said he was “late for work.”

A police officer stopped the biker at 3:35 a.m. about 80 miles northwest of Detroit. Authorities said the man had earned a spot on their bulletin board.

“We have a Wall of Fame here in the report room, and when anybody arrests someone traveling over 100 mph, we mark it down,” Tuscola County Sheriff’s Lt. James Giroux said.

The suspect was in the county jail yesterday awaiting arraignment on a charge of fleeing and attempting to elude police.
