    Insane doesn't quite cover it. I thought topping out an STi was fast...apparently not.

    I've never done 200mph on a bike but I have done 160mph on a empty road and I can say that its nothing like going fast in a car. This is saying stock for stock. I've done 140mph in a Integra type R and that thing felt so unstable. 160mph on my stock bike was a different story, the bike was so solid. Unless its a exotic car I think i'll stick to going really fast on my bike and not in my car.

    For you guys who have gone fast in the WRX, when does it start to get unstable?

    That trip was last April, 6 miles (the pic was shot after three miles) of the slimiest red mud you can imagine. I still leave an orange stain when I wash the car.

    When cruising in 4th its easy as hell to slide up to 120 and it still feels good to me...

    The guy that wrote that bike thing needs to go quit his job and write some sort of fictional book about somthing to do w/a bike racer. Im serious. All his stories are fun as hell to read.
