Not that im proud of (really not i realize i was dumb) but I got 42 tickets in one sitting. Everything from participation in a illegal speed contest to multiple illegally modified vehicle. Needles to say they gave me a room for the night and took the car.

If I were a cop, I'd buy weed and flea market knives just to plant on people.

I usually just dropped the right foot and cops can hear a HP V-8 a mile away, and all they have to do is look for tire smoke and/or the car rocketing past everything else. It's really easy with a duster 340 and crotch rocket bikes. The last ticket was $740, he wrote me for 115 in a 65, but actual was written as 177. He was very nice to me. Could have impounded the bike and took me in, but just wrote for speeding.

yup. Back then, I thought it was cool, now I like telling the stories, but if I had known what doors it would close, I would have done things a little differently. Or I would have gotten my jeep way sooner and avoided it all! It's just as much fun on a technical trail at 5mph as it is going 100+ in a car. The only difference is, you are not likely to die at 5mph, but 100, different story! Still, had some good times and met some cool people(none of which I still talk to) and got some good experience and stories out of it.

To hell with that. I make some mad money street racing and running cars and the ladies like it. Just keep one step above the feds and it's all good.

when I lived in texas I pretty much saw triple digits every day. It has been a while since I was over 100... Heck the wife said she used to get up to 120 all the time between 215 and the speedway offramp when she went to work.

I did over 130 on the 215 between Rainbow and Flamingo once at 2 in the afternoon. The statute of limitations has since passed.

Made it from the motor speedway to sunset station bowling center in 15 minutes. 15-95-sunset! I was moving! Had a hot date at 1030, and left the races/stunts at 1017.

Well I dunno if I'm cool enough to hang with all you bad asses!

My last true speeding experience was when I got the jeep....I was going '75' according to my speedometer and was wondering why I was flying by everyone? Well...turns out the speedo is about 18% off.

Whoops. Bombing down the highway doing like 90 in the wag. Hahaha.

My sister is in town for a week and she drove it to redrock yesterday. I get a text asking 'is your speedometer off?'

Whoops. Probably should have told her. She was doing the same thing, and wondered why everybody was going so slow. Haha
