I know what you mean. The mature adult in me thinks that it was outrageous and irresponsible and foolish and dangerous and reckless to operate a motorcycle at those speeds on a public road. But lets have a show of hands: Is there anyone out there who owns or has owned a hi-powered superbike and NOT pushed it well into triple-digit speeds on the highway? Anyone? If you haven't then I admire your supreme self-control. I know I was guilty of that many times during my gloriously misspent youth. In fact, a buddy and I were once both ticketed for going 125mph in a 50mph zone! With passengers on the back!! How's that for stupid and irresponsible?
