    <grin> Me likey. 150 kph ain't all bad for short periods. Question
    about speed cameras? Red flashing light as I passed by under an
    overpass? There were two of them, one pointed upwards and another
    kinda sorta across the road. Wuz I nipped?

    Been in country for three days now. Left Frankfurt after picking up
    the bike on Saturday, then rode to Niedersolbach for a mini-rally.
    Came down to Kaiserslautern Sunday, met up with my son and caught up on
    stuff. Tried to go over to Trier today, but it was miserably pissing
    down. Turned around and came back to catch up on stuff in my room.
    *sigh* I leave for Bertesgaden Wednesday.

    What plates are on your bike? I have California plates on mine and
    it's pretty much a get out of jail free card. Not that I abuse it
    _too_ much. I think the authorities must have a flip book movie of my
    travels. I have nightmares that Interpol is sending a posse after me
    to collect.

    It's a 700cc dual sport. I think it topped out somewhere around 162
    kph. I tried getting off and pushing, but it still wouldn't go any
    faster. I do miss my Daytona 1200. It would be a hoot over here.

    Rental bike, German plates. I'll end up paying it, if it was a nip.
    118/100 zone, should be cheap. I hope. hehe

  6. Heh. Sort of what I was thinking. From the description of a 700c dual-
    sport, it sounds like a TransAlp. I think 110mph is about your lot on
    one of those.

    And if it's anything like the Duke, it'll weave like a Jacquard loom at
    anything over 70.

    that pretty much describes my mate's 600cc Transalp - made worse by the
    enormous Givi screen he fitted. As a championship class enduro rider he's
    embarrassingly quick in the twisties, though, the bastard

    Yup, TransAlp and it's rock steady at it's upper limit. It leans over
    pretty well too. I may have to see if it'll fit in my suitcase when I
    go home.

    As tortured similes go, I'm immensely proud of that one.

    And as a trained Wire Wilton Weaver who formerly worked in the world famous
    BMK carpet factory I had the dubious pleasure of operating one for a few

    Noisy feckers, but the worst job was tying in new jute & poly beams (which
    provide the backing for the carpet).

    I know it's got nothing to do with the thread but it made me reminisce a wee

    I used to happily get in excess of 190kph from a 250.

    "That FS1E has a headlight like a concussed glow-worm in a dirty beer

    "His RD smoked more than an early morning picket line"

    "It handled like a pregnant hippo on acid"

    All ones from my past as said by mates.

    If that was 118 on your speedo you probably won't hear anything. 30 over the
    limit is where they start getting interested. 240/80 was my best. They had to
    come and get me.
