Leadfooted Women

I have one friend in the Navy, and one civilian that I work with, who have heavy feet. When it comes to driving on the freeway, I’ve heard stories from them that simply reek of testosterone. (Except both are women.)

Although neither have quite done this: I clocked a guy on a crotch-rocket bike doing 189 mph. Just let him go. Since police departments began to get sued for chasing speeders, around 1995, there’s a fine line.

You have to determine if you can catch him, if chasing him will cause an accident for him, for you, for the public. There’s no way to catch anyone like that.

Update: True to form, one of the ladies mentioned above told me that she got her car up to 130 mph recently. And she discussed it as if it were an everyday occurrence. While she was talking, I thought: remind me to never accept a ride from ‘er. I don’t know whether my ticker could take bein’ in the same vehicle. . .

  1. Testosterone? You went there? Well – fine. You look a LOT like that fish.
    : )

    So, what I got from this VERY informative article is I can probably go up to about 80MPH, no problem. The danger zone is from about 80-180MPH, but if I go above 180 I should be just fine. Got it!

    Thanks for the tips Navy One!

  2. I think I clocked around 70MPH yesterday, which is a personal best…

    Whilst out walking I cut through the Farmers yard (which has a public right of way); its obvious that his dogs don’t abide by the country code as they saw me as fair game; and at me they came, with gnashing teeth and blood curdling growls.

    Fortunately Joss heard my pitiful cry and raced back to help me; the result of which rendered the farm dogs into quivering wrecks (no blood was shed as his presence is enough).

    The look of contempt from Joss was enough to put me humbly back in my place!

    Yours Aye.

  3. Holy crap that’s a sexy motorcycle. I don’t belong on the back of two things, horses and motorcycles. But, dang! that thing looks cool.

  4. I was glad when my daughter chose to sell her crotch-rocket. There’s a lot of idiots out on the highways.

  5. EB: Good thing your faithful pooch lurked nearby and was able to pull your irons out of wherever they were.
    OkieRover: How about donkeys?
    Lou: Wow, your daughter had a crotch rocket. That is neat.

  6. Modern cars and bikes are so well engineered they make heroes out of fools, try driving 130 mph in a 1970 Dodge Charger or a 1973 Kawasaki Z1 motorcycle, you need bollocks the size of melons, something your female mates are probably lacking.

    • Very true. Any of those older cars will shake loose at that speed. Although, some of the females I know (while all lady in person) are another breed behind the wheel. . .
