Blasting the Diavel 2 gears toward the mail boxes, CHP coming from the other direction as I came out of Light Speed

I casually turn into my driveway as he did from the other direction, but no lights. I go down my driveway like nothing happened.


Checked my mirror and didn't see him.

Went down to the barn to get out of line of sight in case he changed his mind.

Went into barn and closed the door. Still no cop. I probably should buy a lotto ticket.

Did you murder Nick and bury his body in the back '40 or what? The ride reports have been missing these last couple of years.

Good to know your still in the game. Been a long time since a ride report from you or Nick for that matter.

Bet that bitch pulls hard!
.
Yes it does.
Did a couple of " Cow Pasture " runs on The Fast Side of Palomar.
I thought I saw 131 mph when it was happening, but camera didn't catch it.
2nd run, later in the day was somewhat hindered by traffic , so only got 121 mph.
The record ( 132 ) is co-held by the 2015 Kaw H 2 and the 2012 Aprilia RSV 4 nekkid bike.
The 2018 Kaw 636 Ninja got 124 mph a few months ago.

Will try another run with the Duc in a few weeks.

The cow pastures are a nice opportunity for a quick blast. Not sure how fast I've seen on that little stretch, but it was adequate :)

... And an old timer to boot, how fast can he be going? :wink2::D
They don't know until I remove my helmet and they see my driver's lic. :eek:
After a long spell, got 2 tickets in the past 3 years on Palomar.
They're not much on The Geezer exemption, there.

He has been doing his boat charter thing on weekends.

Maybe see more of him during our so-called winter ?

The upper pasture, going uphill is the best stretch with the most visibility.

Long right hand corner you want to be around 90 mph and come out at 90 + for
about 1/8 mile.
WFO till you see the face of God then brake, slow to 90 mph or less going into a dog leg
just past the peak speed point........

The straight before the curve has too many driveways and trees to go too fast.

Fight it in court... it wasn't you, they can't ID you... you can't remember going that fast, actually, you don't remember being on that road at all :razz:
