    Cool vids Sven. I have a couple of questions. Do you always have the camera on? What camera are you using (just a mini-cam or something like a pen-cam)?

      I need to detail my new setup, infact you're the million person to ask me recently. I'll do it tonight.

      Oh, and thanks for the message on my sign :P

        LOL! Tease!

        I have a vid somewhere of me doing a 0-154 mph run on my old ZX1100 but I have not been able to find the thing in ages.

          heh. I have done the top speed on a runway. Never again mind, and I'd certainly not post a real video on a public highway. People get arrested for that ****.

                Lol, had me fooled, I admit. The fastest I have gone that could be confirmed was 162 MPH, and that was in my '72 Charger. Luckily for me, the cop who got me on radar was a friend of mine and didn't throw me in jail. He didn't give chase, but made a point to come find me the next day and ask if it was me and give me a nice long lecture.

                Speed can be fun and is definitely a rush, but it does get scary sometimes once you get up there. The slightest thing that goes wrong could be fatal to you and others. I miss that car sometimes, but I also think selling her is the only reason I am alive today.

                  Haha! nice one. Speed is fun though, but only on tracks (such as as HPDE's)

                  A little off topic, but I'm looking forward to heading out to Watkin's Glen for an HPDE in a few weeks. I went a couple years back and it was a blast, should be a good time again!

                    Nicely done, I was waiting for the explosion of posts about safety etc. :row1_2:

                    I don't condone speeding on public roads in excess but sometimes you need to feed some speed to your ride. What I don't get are the a$$ hats that decide to try and speed in and around town, your just asking for trouble.

                      LOL This was awesome! I kept rewinding and counting the seconds of your acceleration :D I thought you had a rocket strapped to your bike or something.

                        That was the only thing that annoyed me. But this was the 6th outtake :(

                        And getting the back wheel spinning is dangerous on a stand! So I dare not do anymore...

                          Speaking of HPDE's, I'm headed to one this weekend.

                          I would love to make it up to Watkins Glenn, I've heard it is a LOT of fun.

                            Coincidentally I'm going with the Porsche club too! Here's are a couple of vids of my last time out:

                            [media]http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=1148402662349700816[/media]

                            The second vid is more interesting. At 4:40 minutes in, I'm at about 120mph. At about 5:33 minutes in, I almost hit the wall, you can hear the instructor get a bit nervous :-)

                            There's another PCA event there in October if you're interested:
