Do mean youll be riding in France on US plates? I doubt very much theyll even bother to get hold of you - I think it is very unlikely they have agreements with all the US states to obtain information. Such agreements are usually reciprocal and the French would find it very difficult to share information outside the EU.

Nevertheless, dont think you can get away. Yes, if they pull you over in a mobile speed trap they take you to the nearest ATM to pay the fine in cash, BUT, beware: there is a tolerance of up to something like 25% over the limit (I think thats what it is) and at anythiong over that they will take your drivers licence and potentially impound your bike. So DO NOT be tempted. At that sort of speed the fine will be EUR750, but losing your bike would seriously spoil your trip.
