clarification: WHEN TRAFFIC IS CLEAR ENOUGH.

80-85 mph on the beltway for me when it allows, keeps me in flow of the fast lane, and I pass the majority at about 2-5 mph. A few insane still pass me. No tickets yet.

Depends on what I feel like. Typically I ride rather non-aggressively, but if my wife calls or something it will be much faster.

75-80 for me, depending on traffic. I usually ride just a little faster then the majority of traffic. In my expierence, slowly riding through traffic is safer then staying on one spot.

Left lane when possible so I can watch for idiots behind and to the right instead of 360. 65 to 90 depending on traffic flow and how late I am for work...

I drive top speed anytime on the street. Especially in active school zones or construction areas.

If you know exactly how much it is off then you can do the math in your head and figure it out.


Speedohealer FTW!
