well, there isnt really a defense. And i thought about taking the post down. so i agree pretty stupid on a couple of fronts.
1. I was on a basically deserted road that because i had crested the high point of the road i could see approximately 5-7 miles of basically straight road. Empty. (and I was by myself)
2. the photo is actually a screen shot of a video, flipped my phone to video and at one point just took some video, got lucky with one clean photo.
But out of curiosity. How fast is too fast? ( i would say on a appropriate road - i can think of some stretches of asphalt between san diego and say phoenix that are ideal.) and please dont say anything over the posted limit, most of us (probably all) of us speed to a certain extent. Hopefully none of us are weaving in or out of traffic, or going much faster than prevailing traffic.
now for impressions: what impressed me was that between 100 to say 120 i could feel the speed in the car. But at or around 120mph - I honestly felt like the car just became more solid, more planted, more stable. I probably maxed out around 145 had plenty of road in front of me.
