PsychoPhil: darch: Jesus. I get nervous at 70mph on my Street Glide. I can't even imagine what 290 must feel like.Wimp. I've pinned the speedo on my '99 FXDWG a few times. Yeah, it gets there...eventually. But it gets there.
Z-clipped: Rent Party: I've been leaned waaaaay over at 100+ on highway 2 between Idaho and Glacier, passed cops going the other way, and didn't even get a blink.That's because by the time they slow down, stop, turn around, and get moving in the other direction, you're already too far gone. In fact, most cops won't bother chasing sport bikes at all, because they know they generally can't catch you if you don't want to be caught. I blow by cops all the time... as long as you're going sufficiently fast (120+), they usually don't even bother turning their lights on.

darch: Shakin_Haitian: I love it when some prick on a bike comes tearing down the road, startling other drivers. It's also fun being behind a car that has to hit the brakes because a bike cut them off. Impatient assholes can't wait ten seconds for cars to pass each other, so they just have to cut them off.[24.media.tumblr.com image 300x236]That's just it- no one driving a car/truck/etc should be startled by ANYTHING on the road. Your attention should be total and complete. But alas, I watch people weave all over the road like they've been on a bender all afternoon and when I pass them- yep- texting.
staplermofo: Can motorcycles have aerodynamic downforce stuff, like spoilers, without it making them crash more when they turn?
Abox: See, this is what happens when 285 bashes your head into the ground and you DON'T have a gun. And don't start with your 'he went after 285'...point is when he got there, 2thugty5 assaulted him.
Durboloid: It was exhilarating and terrifying simultaneously.
GuidoDelConfuso: what's the ... difference between 200 and 290?
