    Saw a post from Maine troopers today with a photo of a 19-year-old who was going 50mph over. Apparently this is a thing now, cops shaming people on social media before they even go to court? I weep for the future.

    Eh. You can drive for hours in TX at triple digits and still be in the middle of nowhere. Story reminds me of the Vette dude in CA who outran the airplane chasing him until he ran out of gas though. I can only imagine how that "stop" went down in reality.

    Didn't know a 2013 F150 pickup could go 150 mph. I did laugh at the rider trying the "I didn't realize I was going that fast" line when getting pulled at 134. WTF?

    An 02 CBR600 doing 156. Shit, I need his tuner. My 08 CBR600 tops out at 148 on the back straight at COTA. You ever hit the rev limiter at 148 mph? Its fun!

    Sport rider in 2002 tested the cbr600 F4i at a radar verified 157mph.

    When I was younger I may or may not have gone 110 in a 25 before. There's certainly no proof if I was.

    My dad told me I could be anything I wanted when I grew up. So I became an Asshole.

    Re: Texas Speeders

    The most alarming high-speed moment I had was on my FJ1200 on I-95 north of Lewiston-Auburn. I wasn't going 150 but I also wasn't going slow, when a legitimate grey-haired granny in what looking like a Le Sabre absolutely scorched me in the right-hand lane. Totally calm, eyes forward, both hands on the wheel - she must have been doing 130+.
