About speed, I know that there are motorcycles faster than my tech-ed up KZ1100 was but jeez it was fast.
I was once a brain dead type who used to go fast (read that as fast as it would go) I never, let me repeat that, NEVER, had the time to study the speedometer so I could tell everyone how fast I was going. Call me a pansy but after about 125mph things are happening so fast that each additional 10mph seems almost an exponential increase in the concept of time & distance. I never had the guts to try to read the speedo!
I have always listened to the guys who would detail to me their exploits at 130mph with the same ear that I used for the guy who would tell me about the ten point buck he missed. My thinking on the latter was always that he was full of it,(poop) because any deer I ever saw that I could tell you how many points were on his antlers would end up hanging on the wall, not as a story about one that I missed.
The point, the same guy who claims to be keeping careful record of his speed and actions at or above 130mph also misses ten point bucks on a regular basis.
