I had my CB1100F up to 140+ a couple of times. A loaner 88 IROC-Z to 140+. But I've only had my 98 Z28 to about 112. Gettin' old, I guess.

Live and learn (with the operative word being LIVE).

It does feel exhilarating, doesn't it?

I had my nissan 240SX to 108. That was on a long straight isolated road in the mountain/coal regions in Pennsylvania. That was 7 years ago. I have wised up a bit since then.

I can't remember the last time I took my car over 65.

90 in 17-year old Volvo 240, summer or fall of '06, before I started hypermiling it. Yes, I was bad. Somebody wanted to pass me and I didn't want them to...

Odd, all the time I've spent in Europe, sometimes miles from the German border and once or twice within, how is it nobody ever speaks of no speed limit on the Autobahn over there...?
But if I ask they give me a look like I must be out there somewhere.

How come I have to cross a pond 8000 miles away from the source to start hearing it?

Montana has no speed limit roads, you drive too fast they nail you for reckless driving.
So how is that 'no speed limit?'
Oh, I get it, no signs!
Ok, so because I see no signs it means drive as fast as it will go...
Or does it?
But at least you can ask Montana folks, and you might hear them talk about it.

Driving a car is about control.
Unlike what that might imply control is not about how well you can handle the car at high speeds. Because there is no such thing when all it takes is stomping the pedal and holding the wheel, hence control is about not doing it.

By the way...
They can throw you in jail for that, 30 days, 1,000 dollar fine, suspended license.
Sadly, technically speaking that's doing the driver a favor.
What if they had lost control?
Either the trees in the median stop you...
Or you spin into oncoming traffic...

PARTY POOPER!

Im pretty sure all these drivers understood the risks they take, and felt they were in a place and time to do so!?
