    Arrow Utah Speed limit increases.....

    I know it most likely would never happen here, but it's nice to see nonetheless, (unless you own a she-strom and cant handle the vibes........!!)

    That would be a fair speed limit. - 130km/h. I would even be content with an over 40 impound law if we got a reasonable limit that reflects what people actually drive.

    "UDOT previously said it found no fatal accidents related to speed in earlier test 80 mph zones."

    Doesn't this go against what we are told from B.C. policy makers? Oh wait, I forgot they are wrong and simply hold steady to unproven ideas and principles. Silly me.

    I drove through the 80 MPH sections a few years ago south of Salt Lake and was towing my trailer at the time. From what I could tell, they are ok with trailers at 80 mph also. That's a hell of a lot faster than the painfully slow 55 with a trailer law in California.... like 45% faster.

    All we'd have to do is....well....re-engineer the roads, on-ramps, off-ramps, etc.

    yeah i'd be very happy with that... as i'm sure you've encountered with the ZX10, its a bit of a pain dragging your arse around town in 3rd....

    Are there any 650 bikes able to ride at 80 mph without high revs? (in reference to OP she-strom comment).

    My DL1K can ride that speed all day every day without breaking a sweat. Between 4K and 5K rpm's. No vibration.
