Had my Seca into the 130's once, just so I could see how fast I could make her stop at that speed. Even with a hand and foot full of brake, it took several seconds before I could even feel them grip.
This was a long stretch of straight, freshly paved road. That experiment taught me to keep it in the double digits only...
I'm glad that I learned how long a even STOP truly takes, and I am glad it actually took the distance it did. Since I was Y&S (young and stupid) at the time - if she had stopped quickly, I might have convinced myself that it's (marginally) safe to haul a$$ like that every once in a while!
