Well, today I had the opportunity to open it up some and hit 75 mph. First time at that speed.

FUCK it was scary. I don't know how you guys ride at 100+. I guess ya get used to it but at 60 years-old. Geezz. :eek:

It WAS kinda cool in a oh-shit-im-gonna-die way. :D

usually I can get up to 160 on the track after 140 I think it gets scary. 100 seems like nothing to me anymore.

What is scary is when you are going 75 and a damn dump truck is trying to pass you with a load and a nice big hump in the pavement (overpass) just ahead and I'm 62.

Ahahaha oh you old farts crack me up. ;)
LOL, yeah... we are old farts but still racking up memories. This is from a surfing trip in Cabo Mexico a few months ago with this black swim-suit model I was dating. Did INDY 500 a few weeks ago. Being single and retired rocks :D

For me the only thing that makes going fast scary is the wind... hate it when I'm going at highway speeds and a big gust of wind hits me from the side.

Hahah, the speed limits here are 75! If you aren't going at least 80 little old ladies in Pirus's are passing you.

Going over a bridge when its windy.that was the scariest thing for me when I still owned my little scooter that maxed out at 120kph.now I open it up more in windy conditions.it feels like the bike is easier to get blown around when I'm at slow speeds.

Drove through a huge downpour yesterday going over 80mph to keep up with traffic for about 30 minutes. I was riding with my wet weather gear so I stayed dry and was comfortable the whole ride.
At work today, one of the guys was talking about how terrified he was driving home under the speed limit with his hazards on in the same storm and said he could only see like 5 feet in front of him and was scared shitless he wasn't going to make it home.

Guess putting my time in on two wheeled vehicles has made me indifferent to the weather.
