I threaten to take it easy all the time but always fail at least a few times on a day ride. It is not about being rushed for time , it is all about the thrill of the powerful bike. We have discouraged riding partners with our "spirited" riding but I always encourage them to ride the way they want to and i will stop and wait for them.

BUT

That one day I had the ****z and sharted I was in a big hurry to get of the bottom of the hill.:banghead:

Not me sir, 65mph max.

Back in the 1970's a friend of mine was driving a Ford GTHO (Ozzy car) at 90MPH (before KPH was introduced in OZ) in a 30MPH zone - in front of a school - for blind children - and given a $30 fine. The idiot decided to take it to court and challenge it rather than paying the fine because he was driving a high performance car and he believed that he was therefore driving safely at the time. The judge put him in Maitland gaol for three months.

I would never do anything illegal!
I try to do everything illegal, if possible.

A friend of mine in high school was showing off with his Chevelle in front of the school, unfortunately a cop clocked him at 120 mph in a school zone, I forget how long they took his license (correct spelling), at least a year I think, he had to sell the car.
