We heard radio traffic last Sunday from one of the Arkansas State Trooper Units patrolling US65, calling for the local PD Unit in the town a few miles up the road:"I just clocked a Crotch Rocket MC at 137 MPH" :22yikes: and for him to be on the lookout and gave the color of the bike and the color of the riders shirt. They never found or caught him.

If you went down, how far you would skid and for that fact stay alive at that speed? :eek:4:

I went down at 100+ in leathers and armor, slid down/off the road into a field, and got up and walked away.

No issues whatsoever.

Young. Dumb. Lucky.

We watched a tv show about how they made the racing suits, they protected at those speeds and riders would walk away.

It was simply amazing.

Year or so ago, one of Ohio's finest Ohio Highway State Patrol (attached to the M/C Division) and another LEO from a local department were busted on the Interstate at 149 and 150. Local was fired, Trooper lost his highly desirable position in the Moto Div. and maybe some days off. LOTS of publicity, stink, hints of cover-up, etc.... They were both on CR's...

Just sayin'...

1.Right up to the sudden stop. 2. Not long after the sudden stop.

If properly geared and the good Lord wasn't through with you yet, I would say you would walk off. Sliding doesn't hurt. Running out of skin and impact is what get you.

YMMV
