Dr D, 1st post to a mutual interest forum & I’m already spanked.. Despite a handful of trusted friends/riders that’s why I don’t group ride or frequent these places despite some intelligent offerings here that are interesting. I refer you back to the final 2 sentences of my OP & add that it’s not how fast you can go but how far you can go fast. Ever doubled the speed limit & added 10pm? In the mountains? Ever been over 180mph multiple times? Do you have all 50 states, 3/4 of Canada & a bit of Mx? 95% alone w/o gps at any time? How many 1000 in 1’s ya got? Just curious.
