dude, i cannot understand what the heck you are saying. :2cents:Smitty said:Thing is back in '77 I was only doing around 60mph when I went through a new speed zone of the hwy marked 50mph.
True the followed me claiming I clocked 71mph & then opened up to 120 mph & when I saw them I opened up to around 140mph for a 2.5 miles traffic chase with heavy traffic & also radioded ahead for blockage by another RCMP car.
Yes the '76 Honda CB-400F was a nice bike & obviously I had the fastest one every for when we tested the bike on the Westwood Road Racing Cirucuit with my heavy gear of the time I could not reach 85mph though a chap in his racing leather & 35lbs my lighter was able to reach 90mph.
So YES the cops can radio ahead so do not count on outruning them.
In my case I noted them crawling along & waved them by, but they did not & realized it was me they were after. Bummer for I had gone down to 4th gear to let the revs go up to 11 thou & just a short distance ahead I was going to do a heat check on the plugs & yes the improved rear shocks & better tyres were gripping for as the cops admitted in said chase(???) they did not pass any vehicles amongst the heavy traffic & neither did I to actually not only did I stay in the lane, but seemed to stick to the white shoulder line!!!!!!!!!!!!
Six months loss of DL, max fine fine at the time was all they could throw at me for from '46 till '77 I had never received even a parking ticket. So it seems the Magistrate concluded the bike had gone through at 71 mph & had gone up to 90mph. Slightely different to the report to the Sgt on duty would you not think? Note I am not saying anything about guns drawen, being hit in the back of the neck of the one saying "Another second of your f--cking around & I would have killed you" for that had to do about trying to converse with them when I could not get my FF helmet off IMMEDIATELY, & trying to loosen up my riding gear so I would not become to hot.

...WHAT???Still who am I to say for on my Yamaha YZF600r I was in 4th & littling the revs sing away, with still more to go.
You're a new member here, and it seems less and less likely that you're going to form friendships with few of the most presitigious and experienced riders out there, whether you care or not.banse inc said:oh no! i'm gonna get flamMed!
the part i quoted wasn't as bad...but after reading his FIRST reply further up. jeeze, learn some grammar or something. :thumb:
Oh. I thought smitty was French, that's why he writes like he does. Being from canada, etc, I just ASSumed.Vash said:Alright guys stop jumping on the newbe's case.
A few things you should know about smitty. He's been around since they invented motorcycles it seems like. The guy is a wealth of info, and tends to remember bizzarre details about what sort of head the used on bikes during the great depression. Litterally. I for one suspect vampirism, but you gotta respect anyone that has been riding longer than I've been alive times two. And didnt go out and get himself a goldwing, no he STILL rides sportbikes. That says something about character.
The guy is however insanely hard to understand (no offence smitty, but you are). Part of it is the bizzare slang he probly picked over the years, part side effects of injuries, and part desire for fresh human blood. Whatever it is, its worth taking the time to read over his posts 3 or 4 times and becouse he is a wealth of information.
I know 287 very well. I see cops lurking in wait for your ass. What part were you refering to? Lower or higher numbered exits? I've been fortunate not to ever pass the police at let's just say excessive speed.Unas_the_Slayer said:I just topped out my bike at WOT this morning. 144mph (with -1 +2 gearing. I have a speedo healer too so the speedometer is accurate). I might be able to hit 150 going downhill if I fully tuck in. When there's a long uphill stretch is a good place to do it to avoid cops like Smitty said, but of course you're using more gas and you won't max out your speed if that's what you're going for. Also I have seen cops waiting just past the crest of hill, so I usually slow down at the top.
Anyway, I did it on an interstate highway (287 for anyone who lives in NJ). Plenty of long straights on highways. If I passed a cop at that speed I doubt they would even bother pulling out, I haven't but some of the guys I ride with have passed cops and they just keep going. If you're doing 150 when you pass a cop sitting on the side of the highway, you're going to be miles ahead of him by the time he pulls out and gets up to speed. Then he has to go fast enough to catch up to you. Just duck off on the second or third exit if you see him start to move as you pass him.
Don't worry, I know where the cops hide on the sections of 287 that I frequent. I don't want to post any exact places because I know some cops browse sport bike forums.sixer said:I know 287 very well. I see cops lurking in wait for your ass. What part were you refering to?
