Possibly both drivers would be assigned a percentage of the responsibility. If not, it would be the fault of the driver pulling out of the driveway. It is your responsibility to make sure that you have ample time and space to enter any roadway before you do so. If the other driver was exceeding the speed limit, they could be assigned the fault, with the thought that if they had been traveling the proper speed, they would be in control of the vehicle and could have avoided it.

Is it illegal to clock someone speeding while on their motorcycle on someones driveway?

In most states a property owner can make his property subject to vehicle code enforcement. Then the violation is the same as if it had occurred on the street. If you did not have permission to use the driveway you could also be charged with trespassing. Vehicle codes vary quite a bit from state to state. Several of my friends and acquaintances died on motorcycles doing stunts and speeding on private driveways and lots. The cop may be doing you a big favor.

Can you park your car on your driveway with no insurance?

You can park your vehicle on your property with no insurance. HOWEVER, in some cities you must have a current license plate on your vehicle for it to be parked in the driveway and to have a current plate, you are required to have insurance. The issue here is the driveway and what can be seen from the street. Unlicensed vehicles in a driveway could be viewed as a "junkyard", "car lot" etc
