I realise peeps do tend to exagerate top speeds at times but "Safeguard" (any matelot will know what that means) 175mph WAS indicated and the world each side of me looked like warp speed in Star-Trec!

I'll generally ride on sunny days but if I get the urge I dont care what the weatherman says.
Anyway when the roads are slippy you can have scary fun at low speeds, snaking the tail up the road and sliding round roundabouts!
