Most people don't do more than 20mph over? I think we have some liars. Come on now be honest. I won't tell on you. Throw in a wheelie here and there.

I'm about 50/50 between #2 and #6, with #6 being further broken down to 80% of the time 10mph over, and 20% of the time being up to 20mph over on the freeways. I chose #6 though, since most cagers go at about that clip. I don't want to be slower than them, since that would increase my odds of being clipped by them.

So #6 for safety reasons, if you could believe that!

You left out the option:

I speed moderalety 20-40 on freeways, and empty backroads might as well not have speed limits.

Yeah, what I meant on option 6 was that speeding on backroads (to any degree) was to be assumed - option 6 extended speeding (at slower speeds) to freeways in town as well. (you only have 100 characters per option and I edited it poorly from what I had initially described)

and assume that moderately speeding on the freeways can be somewhat faster than what I indicated at 10-20 over. Sorry for the ambiguous choice. But hey, at least someone chose every option, so we have pretty good range!
