My lifetime revs has reset itself several times, so who knows. But I've enjoyed every single mile of the almost 19,000 miles I have on her now!

I just think it would be funny if you were like 70, riding a sport bike doing a wheel-stand at 110 mph
MAn,, I wish i was 25 naw I am 51. I hate to admit I am not quite as crazy as i once was in my 40s. I have done 136 on a chopper and have stunted it too. I guess old age is slowing me a little but I am fighting it all I can. I am just starting to wonder if I am going to go faster than my angel guarding me. He might be getting tired of me too.


Here is chopper stunt around 80 for ya.

Nice bike!

Adrenaline junkie....Got it. If you were crazier in your 40's, what were you like at 21?

2014 took delivery on 09/13. 15k miles right now. Put a supercharger on April of 14, did a complete engine build back in April of this year with a stroker motor. At 900rwhp now, its in the shop as we speak getting a bigger blower and upgrading the fuel system, will be close to 1100 rwhp.

Aftermarket parts & modifications can make the C7 into daily driver, but in stock form it's built & designed to be a garage queen.

Congrats Lipstick and your badass to boot. You are keeping the reputation of vette owners bad *** the way it should be instead of geritrol(is that how you spell it)

I use to have t shirt that I wore when I rode my bikes that said "I Know I Know License and Registration" Hell I even got pulled over a couple of times with that shirt on.

Yep I blame it on my father for not giving me enough attention. Did you notice the two sneaky petes on the down tubes?

Obviously the lower the number, the more "aggressive" the driving.... track, autox, etc.
???

Not sure I agree with that. What's the logic there? What am I missing?

I feel safer going fast on a sportbike than I do in a car. I guess I know I can sweeze through just about any cagers mistake.
Just more evidence that having enough money to buy expensive toys doesn't mean one has common sense. Or math skills.

At 120 mph you cover 175 feet in one second. Given normal human reaction times, you're going to travel about 45 feet before you are even cognizant of a threat, then another 45 feet before you can react to it and take action (swerving, braking, etc.) That's 90 feet, or 7 - 8 car lengths BEFORE you do anything at all. And aiming for the gap between two cars which closing going 120 mph isn't a trivial task, even assuming that those other vehicles aren't trying to take evasive action themselves, and close that gap just as you get there.

If you're on 1 wheel to start, add more distance, because you've got to drop down to 2 before you can do anything else.

But I understand, you're superhuman, with reaction times that would make a fighter pilot or Formula 1 driver green with envy, so none of these risks really apply to you.

This has to be one of the most retarded things that I have read on this forum to date.

And there have been plenty of retarded things written.

The way I look at it that natural selection(i think darwin is a tool) bs is going to take us all out it's just a matter of when. You can either live your life real safe and not have any kicks or push it and have alot kick and if you eat it at least you don't have to die a slow horrible death in a old folks home with a dirty diaper.
always enjoy your posts and not to get off topic but, why was Darwin a "tool"?....just curious

I used to do shyt like that in my twenties and also brag about it to a bunch of strangers of the internet. Right up until I get hit by a Honda Accord while doing triple digit speeds. When I bought my R1 back from the insurance company, I immediately hit the track and never went back to highway blasting & stunting.

Darwin's law has a way of working itself out. Trust me, you never have to worry about the guys doing 110mph stand up wheelies, because they never stay around long enough to matter. The lucky ones die quickly. The unlucky ones spend the rest of their life in wheelchair or missing limbs. I can name 100's of them.. same story over & over again.

Given this other posts from this individual, I'd say the main issue is not whether he endangers himself (if he splats is anyone here really gonna care?) but whether he takes someone else with him. Let's hope not.

Not a big evolution guy too many holes in the theory. Most of the whole darwin stuff is common sense.

Don't be so negative because if I do take someone out, it could be a liberal or a plaintiff attorney.
