Check out this video of an SV1000 rider enjoying Deals Gap/Route 129. He takes many corners at 45-60, and I saw the speedo hit 90+ at one point. Too fast for me. Watch for the oops near the end.

The operative word is highlighted in red.

There is a challenge in everything we do, for me although I try not to do anything extreme during the day, I accept the challenge of making it to my recliner in the evening and enjoying a glass of wine. lol :lol:

Does not surprise me. The very first time I rode the dragon I was running at a respectable clip on my FJR. A few guys on crotch rockets that I later found had racing slicks went by me like I was standing still.

It looks like he was doing it right (i.e., not stupid fast) and having a good time in the process.

Obviously he doesn't care about his life nor does he care about other peoples life. As long as he is happy the hell with everyone else. This could easily ruin someone day. How would you react if he is coming at you with that speed?
