Like I said back in 05, my next HD is on the way and I've been on this champ for over a year now.

The Larry - prototype skullfuk?

How fast did anybody go?

My 250cc Ducati, with the sketchy speedo, told me 105, which is about the number speed skiers were doing at the time. Yikes.

I've been thinking about the parallels between riding and free-soloing quite a bit lately."

That's my mantra for staying safe on bikes! This is the first I've seen anyone say it. Haven't free-soloed much but that's exactly what I think.

Currently: 88 KTM 600 (enduro).

Previously:
125 Honda enduro
1200 HD sportster
1200 Yamaha Venture Royale
440 Kawasaki (up and over Donner pass on several occasions. Once in a miserably cold light snow.)
Honda 400 Nighthawk(?)

It's all dangerous. All we can do is try to manage and mitigate some of the risk through knowledge and judgement. So why do I keep posting here?

We spent yesterday trail riding in the clouds all day. My sons on their little KX's and me on my trusty CR500. They are getting fast and will skool me sometime in the next few years no doubt.

I just picked up this fuel injected CRF450 for track duty and after a test session at Piru, I'm totally addicted to big air, again.

Took both these beasts out as well over the weekend. Just for some mellow road time.

My buddy has taken his Hayabusa up to 180.
It gives me the willies just to type it.

Yeah, but he did it on a two-lane back road in the San Joaquin farm country
not knowing if somebody would pull out of some fruit tree grove. Kinda hard
to find a road you can lean it over at 130, isn't it?

Reilly, your buddy is playing with fire doing those speeds on open roads.

Hit a coyote anywhere over 150 and you won't be going home that day.
130 or 180 mph on a track with slicks at proper temps is incredible.
It is awesome to control a bike at those speeds.

Busting out 180 on a two lane is hairy. Too many objective hazards in an already lethal environment. Your friend should take it to a track.

180 and 130 are mighty damn fast any way you look at it.

Speed skier Sean Cridland set a training record of 162mph on a car on the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1985 which still stands.

Simone Origone - did 151mph (251.4 kph) sans car in 2006.

I thought I was moving right along on HWY395 @ 160mph in my 280z (sans skis).

I won't ask about crashes, outa kindness I suppose.
