Everybody on this site speeds. Even RacerX. We just keep it to ourselves.

Sorry about the bird, but I wear boots everytime I ride. The first thing to fly off in a crash are tightly laced shoes.

For shame. I would never do 160 while not wearing boots. UNless I had been at the bar. Who wears moto boots when they are bar hoping. lol

Exactly why I ride an R6 and not a Harley

I hate to admit it but I always where my low top chucks when I ride. About 8 months ago I took out a guard rail. My ankle hasn't been right since. Just saying

talking about a curfew, preaching about boots while speeding their off, mentioning their dad and how he is the almighty curfew enforcer

If a DPS Trooper clocks you at that speed you're going to have a permanent criminal record. Curfew will then be the least of your worries.

You are absolutely right about the boots though.

most cops would not pursue at that speed. they will instead just wait for you to splatter yourself into the back of a vehicle. less paperwork and effort on their part. plus most cruisers top out around 125-130 anyways.
