I used to exceed legal limits all the time, from the Talega Hwy in SoCal to the Texas Hill Country and the Blue Ridge Parkway NC to Virginia. It's a miracle I didn't die but only fractured a kneecap.

These guy are a big more rude though.

Not impressed with pinheads doing that in traffic. Must not have the stones or skill to get on a track.

I started to mention my experience at the IOM TT on here one time, but the MSBs that came out of the woodwork made me rethink the telling of that experience.

That video was made back in about 2000. Remember watching it back then. That gold Busa is a 1999 model year (first year made).
