When was the last time you were speeding on your bike?

Lately with all the Fellow riders going down. i have been following the speed limit since Rogers memorial ride. since its not worth it to go fast, you prove nothing and you learn nothing good out of it. i use to care about having chicken strips on my rear tire. now i just don't give a .

last time i was speeding was today 86 mph in a 60 for 1 second just to get past a 18 wheeler. i didn't feel safe being next to him /nor behind him. so post up people.

i never really commuted to work with my bike....and the other times i do ride, it's too tempting not to hammer the throttle. i have no self-control....so i choose not to ride on the streets until i can be responsible doing so.

depends on what you consider "speeding". i ride my bike pretty much at the same speeds as i do in my cage. about 5-10 mph over the limit--flow of traffic. as far as "haulin' " down the freeway, havent done that in several weeks.

Got on the bike today after a long time. I couldn't resist todays weather. I tend to stay speed limit, but caught myself a few times get away from the pack of cagers doing right around 100. Needless to say I didn't feel good about it and slowed down. For some reason I am not as comfortable on the streets after roger =(

I did 60 in a 55 on my Vespa the other day. It tops out at 64 or so. Still get the same feeling of wind and freedom, but in a more restrictive package. Massive brakes on it means I can stop it from full speed in a under 100'. Get old and you figure out ways to get your kicks a bit safer. Still got to watch out for the rest of the world...............
