I have a couple of friends here in Tally that are in the same trouble. They were out riding some of the back roads in the forest. They were doing triple digits and were riding single file, but the arresting officer said they were racing. Now, there is a big difference between speeding and racing. They are facing felony charges and also are needing attorneys.

Ok, maybe I'm just a newb, but triple digits on a public road and in a group?

Who cares if they were racing, that's just not cool.

Triple digits is a way of life.

I had the same mind set when I started riding last year. I could see no particular reason to run in excess of 100 mph on public roads, well.....It's my second year, a newer bike and +100 mph on occasion has occured. As you get more experienced, you will push the envelope as your skills improve. That's not to say that I am trying to perform a Rossi/Mladin/etc., impersonation on public roads but if the expressway should clear, I am definitely opening it up. I guarantee, you will open-up that sportbike eventually.

Maybe you should buy a cruiser and not a sportbike.

I have to agree. That's not to say we all couldn't be pushed into doing it, but I'd, personally, back off out of fear. Fear of jail and fear of crashing. But, that's just me. :2cents: :thumbs:

We have a spot down here that is almost 50 miles of straight,flat, level road through the forest where you can run triple digits for 30 miles and never meet another car, It is really easy to let the bike run comfortably, which as you know, will approach triple numbers quickly

:chill: Ok, bordering on uncool. That's almost an insult! :chill: Of course, I have toyed with the idea of a crusier and a track bike.

Seriously, I do want to go 100-150 mph. But the public road just doesn't seem like the right place. When I'm ready, probably later this year or next season, I plan on going to Texas for a track day.

I'm not trying to be a holier-than-thou: I've gone 100 in my Jetta, on the expressway, just to see if it would (yes, in 4th gear!) If I ever do go 100 on my bike in public, it'll probably also be on an expressway (I-80 in western Nebraska is usually sparsely patrolled, and I've gone 90 in the eastbound and cops in the westbound didn't even bat an eyelash.)

But I've heard too many sportbikers complain about the cagers when they're goofing off or speeding themselves.

I've got a family who depends on my existence so speeds like that are irresposible and selfish for me.

EDIT: Back on topic, sweeet bike! :luck:

That's why we go into the forest, where there are miles of beautifully maintained roadways and very few cars, of course, you could come across a deer, bear or armadillo...Expressways, interstates and the like are where you are more apt to find trouble

I'm sorry to hear you may be leaving the street. Are trackdays common where you live?
