I love that pic. It takes a big set to do that speed on a road like that and still use one hand to take the picture!

That pic was a photoshop bonnie94ssei did for me in commemoration of my run. I'm not stupid enough to take a pic of the HUD at 156.

I was actually doing 51mph in that photo.

You wouldn't believe how many people I've fooled with that pic though. My mom freaked out because she thought I had gone 156. I played along like I did for a while.

Holy balls. 156 is pretty dang fast. How did it handle at that speed? I've done 130 and it was, shall we say, exciting?

How many people noticed the curve ahead? The first time I saw that Pic I said " OH H*** No " Look at the Turn coming up...LMAO....

I think I called willwren and said something like " I'd like to see you make that turn at 156 " LMAO
