I don't know where you did 187, but cars have enough trouble figuring out when to pull out on the highway when one headlight is coming down the road at 70, much less 187. I love speed too, but I remember a conversation I had once with a lady I used to work with. When I mentioned I ride, she calmly related that her son had been killed in his car making a left turn (which was literally cut in half) by a sport bike travelling at high velocity. The turn signal was still blinking when the cops arrived. The guy on the bike just had no time to react. Both died instantly. You want to roll the dice, hey...it's your life, just don't take anyone else down with you.

I forgot to mention in my post..the car in this case didn't turn left in front of an oncoming bike, the bike was overtaking.
