That's what na, it wasn't chickening out.. It was a smart decision..
if you were to do that on a track then it would have been chickening out...

Actually under the circs, I wouldn't overtake him unless I was in a hurry as 140 for our roads is not slow. Just latch onto his tail and let him clear the road for you - no way he can out run you, and you get to ride tension free at that speed. If there is anything that pops up suddenly to be hit - he'll do the honours, and you have 2s more to brake. Such drivers try to shake off the bike, and give up after 20 - 30 min once it sinks in that their cage is no match/ run into traffic in which case it is game over anyways.

I have many a times used various big Boy Buggers as my On-Road Dynamic Shield.. Especially at nights, or while negotiating Trucks who spill sand and other debris, as if they are suffeing from loose bowel syndrome. let the shield do its job. and when the game becomes boring, raise-rip-overtake, and go find the next shield

Mine is 80 kmph.

Because, legally I'm not allowed to exceed that speed on our roads :P

Thats what I typically do :P especially in intersections and when someone needs to overtake in a blind spot!The bugger just pricked me with the constant flashing and that on the kolhapur highway is like asking for some royal arse whooping.

Ride right, Ride safe, and Ride hard!

On two wheels, 132 on R15 as shown on GPS. Speedo was ~145(that's the number I saw when I had a glance at the speedo, could not check GPS at the same time).

On 4 wheels, 170+ on Speedo & GPS showed 167 in Punto 1.4. Though have gone faster than that on speedo but didn't had GPS that time to check the true speed.

I would have been more than happy to just sit at the steering wheel with the car stationery at idling and me flooring it to its redline...GOOSEBUMPS even thinking about it :D
