No. No more than 10-15 over, depending on the street/speed limit. I'll take it slower through 25 zones like neighborhoods and faster on busier streets. Was just talking to an off duty cop the other day, I think he said keep it within 20 mph and you won't get pulled over around here.

It depends on the road.
South Carolina has these really long straight roads where there are no cars around ever so I do ~70 mph on those

5 over in the city, 10 on the highway slowing down feels to slow to go back to normal speed now. D:

Usually go a bit above if I am on a highway, but on local roads I try to stay close to it.

10 over is kind of my usual and my limit...

It also depends on the audacity of the assholes I'm trying to pass . . . there are people that seem to think going the speed limit or two over is alright until you try to pass them, then they feel that you shouldn't even to the point of going 25 or more over the speed limit (Miles Per Hour) just to keep you behind them. Generally I relish the opportunity to keep them going fast and when they come to one of the local speed traps, I like to slow down and let them feed themselves to the cops. The ensuing spectacle is one of my favorite things to watch.

You don't drive the speed limit, you drive with the flow of traffic; if the traffic goes 15MPH in a 65MPH zone, you're forced to go 15MPH, if the traffic goes 100MPH in a 65MPH, you better drive close to 100MPH unless you want to die. Hell the cop would even fine you with "driving too slow." in that situation.

The point of the speed limit (imo) is there to act as a "guidance" so that you don't drive too fast or too slow. Of course you can't drive 65MPH constantly unless you're a capable engineer. That's why there's the +/-5 MPH law.

But despite all that, your words are useless under the law. If you got a ticket for going 100MPH, going with the flow of traffic, in a 65MPH zone, you will appear in court and they will find you guilty for speeding if you said you were going 100MPH in a 65MPH zone.

You know what they will say to you in court? "You wen't over the speed limit, meaning you broke the law, therefore you will be fine" Hah!

You dont change much with age

I bought a grandma car from a grandma giving up driving. Really.
But I still have two Hondas I drive the hell out of.
First is my daily driver, a Honda Shadow VT500c that just turned 10,000 miles. Very agile and surprising quick.
My pride and joy is a Honda Super Magna 750 V-4 with only 4800 orig miles. Very rare as it is nothing like the Magna
The car.is one that seems to suck the fun out of life 5-15 over the limit.


Put me on the bike and I am like a kid again 15-40 over, A bit old for a crotch rocket, not comfy.


Very nice bikes indeed; I plan to get a cruiser in a year or so..very different style of riding when compared to a sport bike. Try and get both of best worlds.lol

Yes, because there is no speed limit on the freeway most of the time

From 1974 til 2011 I rode inline 4's & 6's. I am selling my Nighthawk 650 now.

You should try the V4 honda magna 750cc. It convinced me!
