Wednesday evening, a cop in Key Largo saw two motorcycles whiz by on Overseas Highway at more than 100 mph. The cop, Dep.

Half an hour later, one of the motorcyclists attracted attention again -- by crashing his purple bike through a gate at the Ocean Reef Club, an exclusive Key Largo community with its own airport and golf course.
