Not sure I'll have enough power to get around or out of situations if need be. Thinking of getting bigger bike. Maybe I'm just a wuss and overthinking it. Otherwise it's a great bike for other riding and not getting rid of it.

What do you feel would be a minimum top speed for these roads?

(I've seen bikes occasionally at that time in morning and they are usually hauling - over 85mph. I know afternoons are much more congested and has slower flows so not so worried about those times.)
wuss and overthinking it.

After I got a warning for 80 in a 60 by DPS in front of NRG on 610 I thought I would dial it back a notch. Next day I was almost sideswiped from behind by an Altima. No more. It is much safer to be the fastest thing on the road.
