    PA: RT 45 outside of State College

    I took a test drive in the new MK5 GTI and the salesman took me out this route, and lets just say I was able to sustain speeds in excess of 120MPH for roughly 5 minutes. It's long, straight, flat and perfect. Little traffic and perfect road conditions and according to the salesman, as well as my recent observations, no local federale is on the prowl. If your up this way, be sure to check it out, its a great place to stretch your legs!

    Good, long high speed, eh? Were there any overpasses or whatnot for the policia to hide? How wide was this bad boy? 2 laner?

    It's a two lane road, dashed yellow line, speed is 55mph. The first ride in the GTi I went fast based on the salesman's words telling me that police NEVER look on this road, because there is no place to hide. No over-passes or anything. Just open fields etc. When I took back the Subi, and the trusty V1, and didnt pick up and signs of radar or anything of the sorts. It's a great road to go for a long high speed blast.

    Your location says Bucks County ( i have a lot of friends in Doylestown and Richboro area) but, the real question here: are you in State College?
