Hey dude im a trucker to does that mean im an a-hole.You show your lack of an iq when you make such statements. And if you speed then you cant say chit.Trucks tailgating ,changing lanes like there in a miata.Come on man give me a break.If were tailgating its because some moron just cut right in front of us witch is often the case.Face it 99 % of the things you have in your home were on a truck at some time. So suck it up.

The owner/"passanger" of the car was part of some shady failed mulimedia game company. Did it ever turn out he was the driver, or did "Det. Dano" take him for face value and closed the case?

155 mph is pretty good on an R6. I know it is dangerous, but sometimes it gets the better of us.I bought a 'Busa and drove it from LA to Vegas Out of the pass going down to State line (now known as Primm), I was doing 140MPH for a number of miles. I saw a helicopter on the Nevada side, and slowed down well before the state line. He must have saw me because he followed me for a while on the Nevada side, and I was eventually followed by a trooper, but I kept my speed down, and cruised into Vegas. 140 on a 'Busa feels like cruising Woohoo!

I'd love to see how well the one's who write off the R6 as a "girl's bike" ride the R6 on a track against skilled riders. Love to see it.

Probably not too bad after removing the factory pink & white handlebar tassels. I heard that they create a bit of drag going down the straightaways.

I ride against them on the track.

With you on an R6, yep it's a girls bike.

So they shouldn't jail him nor impound his bike?????



No, SUV drivers going 100 should not be jailed. Your point is what???? If they did 150 they would be.
