Default Re: Keep the detector but....

I think you are right. There is a nice, alternate curvy back road with a couple of nice straightaways that I can take home from work instead of getting on the interstate. It tacks another half an hour onto my commute but considering I may be spending several hundred dollars to defend myself for my recent transgression, it would be time well spent. I should do it once or twice per week to keep the "demons" at bay.

Yeah I know your right. I really think it was new bike euphoria. Maybe I should buy a Buell Blast for my next bike?

Same like Russia....yeah we know this, now U.S. can kill people faster......



Then again, Lithuania was founded hundreds of years before US was created and we already lived here, when you had naked indians running all over the place there But its a history that neither you nor we remember very well.Right?

100 MPH is not dangerous, it depends on where you do it. I have lived in germany for 4 years and own a ZX-10, I commute every day at over 160 MPH and not just on the autobahn. new sportbikes are designed to handle this if the rider can. Its silly how spped is such a factor in the states vs. young drivers/ old drivers/ women drivers. Is going 100 MPH dangerous on a track?

If he passes you - thats OK. He won't touch you And even if he hits you in your car, you won't be injured seriously...



Then again, different situation here, kids learn to drive fast from the begining and they are used to it and probably they can control speed better (because they do it more often).Still risk is higher and yes, we have problems when people driving cars don't expect to seed bike doing 125mph and so on.....



But thats the way it is, bad or good i don't know...
