Re: Poll: Whats The Fastest You Guys Have Ever Gone?
I've been 150 many times in different vehicles, I usually get scared there, as you get tunnel vision. These were tracks or runways, or closed roads. If you go fast with the public, you are bound to get burned. An example is when I went up to north Texas to see my sister graduate, I was on my precious 1990 zx7, riding with my buddy on his seca. Well, being 19 or so, I wanted to top it out, so I waited for a clear stretch of road and hit it. Officially, the bike toped out at 155, but it wasn't stock. Well close to that speed I went over a rise and there in front of me were ten cars piled up, five rows of two. I knew that I couldn't stop, so I stayed on it a went right between them all, lane splitting, I half expected to die, but I got through ok, started to slow down, and looked behind me, the seca was doing it too, though probably at 130 or so. I thought to myself, he's gonna die, but then he got through. We had to stop soon be cuz his rear tire threw out a plug at speed. I never did anything like that again, becuz I should have died, and you will if you push it on public roads, things happen real fast at triple digits.
I'd like to do the standing mile, so many have that I know what it will do, so I probably won't. I don't like going real fast, just accelerating really fast, top speed runs are testosterone induced, like so many of the mistakes we all make.
