This was funny:eljeffe said:I wonder what model? K1200S? R? New GT? Cause it couldn't have been one of those old pokey Flying Brick or Boxer BMWs.
BULLSHIT........... '04 GT, Peidmont Red. Definately fastest color. Regularly 130.davidk63 said:A K1200GT. 2003 Probably, but maybe a 2004.
Oh, and definitely the fast blue color.
130 for red? Well, wasn't red. Red is further away from the speed of light than any other color, donchano.RedHawK12GT said:BULLSHIT........... '04 GT, Peidmont Red. Definately fastest color. Regularly 130.
Z-6's, NGK iridium plugs, Escort 8500 X-50. Not even the slightest vibration in mirrors.
I'm with you on this. I got the impression that the 133 was actually read from radar while the 150 is a vague estimate (as in faster than 100 but not as fast as 200)Razel said:Clocked at 133, and the 150 is just speculation on someone's part, qualified or not (probably not...how often is someone tested for accurate observation of those speeds?)

With all the antelope between Springer and Clayton?!?!?!? You are much braver than I. We rode through there in late May at 8am and saw the antelope jumping the fences on both sides. But we only were doing 90-100mphwees_tulsa said:Running that fast, you have to wonder if he realized he had even passed a cop or that one was behind him. I do understand wanting to cross some stretch of god foresaken road at a high rate of speed. We generally cross the northeast side of New Mexico from Springer to Clayton in the 120-125mph range, but at 6:00a.m. generally.
