    Next thing he'll be telling us is that he steps out of the shower to take a piss.

    I don't run anymore, my Rocket is no where near fast enough to outrun our highway patrol, and it doesn't squeeze between rows of sugarcane like a sportsbike... But I have in the past and fuel was always the biggest concern, the TLR drinks massive amounts of fuel at WOT. I would hate to think how much a 250hp 2.3L drinks when held flat. FWIW, never been caught on a bike, never had a speeding ticket on a bike in 22 years of road riding. Touch wood...

    I wonder if a Oklahoma State Trooper on a 'Busa would give you a run....

    Makes no sense.
    How can a speed violation or a wheelie be a felony?
    Must be more to this , , ,?

    Looked up - Florida HB 137 is Employment after retire of School employees.

    Maybe because over 30 mph and wheelies become reckless driving which is a felony??? I’m no police officer, you would know better than me but I did read in the law where they can confiscate...doesn’t mean they will, but they can.

    Steve, take a look at this. I also saw where it had to do with retirement. This bill was from 10 years ago. They amended it to include cars. In smaller print which stupid me doesn’t read apparently it was proposed but never voted in. I stand corrected (d@mn mouse print!). So back to 140mph wheelies in the Sunshine State.:D

    They slip all kinds of things into bills that have nothing to do with them, wouldn't surprise me at all.
