Default Quick Trip....56k beware!

I got off work early yesterday and it was such a nice day I thought about a quick trip.
My folks just got back from Arizona where they wintered and live 100 miles from us.

Started to play with the boost a little


And a bit more


UH OH.....Bit too much boost


He got me


The proof is in the paper work

Nice pics.
Those tire look cool. I was hesitating going wider than 245'* but those 255'* look perfect. Same width as my Firebird but it has 8" rims.
My boost has never gone past your first boost pic.
Tough luck with the ticket. :( Better get that radar detector pretty soon.
That HUD windsheild will cost a pretty penny.
Roads were dry. Bet it was a great trip.
I'm off tomorrow for a quick day trip down Island. I'll be on my guard for the radar patrol.

Good thing about it is that speeding tickets seem to be cheap in BC. I got one doing just a little faster 2 years ago and it was $295 and 5 points. I went to court and pleas bargained, ended up being $55 and 0 points .

Don't make it a regular thing though...before you say smile for the camera make sure the 'boys' are not around .

How'* those new tires doing?

Cheers,

If I pay the fine within in 30 days I get $25 off, and he let me off easy and said I was only going 120Kmh. I had slowed to 140Kmh just before he got me.
I'll pay the fine no point fighting what your guilty of The winshield is what happen up here with all the trucks throwing gravel up. I will get a new one soon, I have insurance with $100 deduct.
I love these tires, very responsive and good grip in the corners, bit louder at h ighway speed though. The car is much more stable at 100mph than the old michelins.
I can hold that boost gauge pegged from 60 to 110mph when the bypass solenoid starts to open.
Moving that radar detector to next on the mod list
