Ok, going fast is fun. It’s really fun. It’s what sport bikes were designed to do. But before you pull back the throttle and kiss traffic goodbye, here are a few things that you should know about speeding.
- More than a third of fatal crashes involve motorcycles that were speeding.
- The average speeding ticket in the United States will cost you $150.
- One speeding ticket can raise your insurance by as much as 25%.
- On average, more than 100,000 speeding tickets are given out every day.
Luckily, there’s a place that you can go where you won’t be bothered by cops. The track. If you’ve got a need for speed, find an appropriate venue. Going to the track will not only improve your skill, but it will allow you to ride without a nagging worry about flashing lights.
The road can be a dangerous place. Not only will you run into cops, but debris, bad drivers, pedestrians, and other hazards will keep you from getting your bike to its top speed safely. If you really want to push yourself. If you really want to go fast. There is only one place to do it. The track.
