Well...I have never had a ticket on an ST as long as I was going maybe 5 mph faster than the fastest other person on the freeway. Normal cruising speed for me is 85 indicated.

You all down in the South have strict law enforcement on the highway IME. I don't know how many times I was cruising on secondary roads down there and saw the local authority parked in front of the town sign "Welcome To Podunk" staring at traffic with a nasty look on his face. Once I was just riding along at legal speed and a cop going the opposite direction did a triple take when he saw my "crotch rocket".

My advice is ride in (eastern) Montana. Secondary roads typically are posted 75 and Ive never seen a cop on one. Or flushed one out of the weeds doing the ton.
