Not to mention the road surface, oil or diesel, the effects on braking from 140mph when you hit a pot hole or a change of surface/road type. The only way you're going to properly test yourself and a supersports bike is on the track. ...

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

The problem is, you can never easily and safely predict a stopping distance on the road as you cannot control what other road users or pedestrians might do. And what they might be about to do might be perfectly safe if all other traffic was travelling at the speed ...

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

Have you ever sneezed while riding?? Try that at 140mph on a clear road and see what happens. Halfords estimated that those who sneeze while driving at 60 mph may travel 50 feet with their eyes closed Not forgetting the physical response that is transmitted ...

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

140 will kill at least one person if anything happens. If you're involved with anyone else then they're dead as well /

Seems a bit selfish to me.

How many aircraft collide mid air?

How many vehicles collide on the road?

That's why you can't compare the two.

Re: Speeding charges dropped against 4 bikers

Doing 140mph per se in the right place isn't dangerous but when the speed limit is 70mph other road users have a right to expect that someone will not be doing 140mph anywhere around them. This makes for interesting reading. Look how stopping distance increases exponentially ...

Re: Must be getting old

... i like to tinker with bikes over the winter. Plus i don't like the fact i can't see over or round other vehicles very easily when riding it on the road. And age is catching up with me. We will see, its not set in stone. Just an idea i am toying with.

Yet another bike ...

Yes I have bought another bike. After swapping and changing my track bike around I tried to live with the 675 on the road it just was not for me. I find riding a 1000cc on the road a lot easier. A freind was selling his old bike which suited my budget so the deal was done. The icing ...
