True 'dat, cookee. My perspective is a monkey can go fast in a straight line (though riding the drag strip is an entirely different subject).
As for riding that fast on the street, its moronic. If you want to go crazy fast go to the strip or a track day. Few things say "poor rider" to me like one who can't control themselves in public. After having ridden the track, I don't bother speeding on public roadways, its just not fun.
