    You should see some of the local news where they ride with the troopers. They don't even stop drivers doing under 79! And they MIGHT sit waiting for an 80+MPHer for maybe 30 seconds! It's a hoot!

    My last road trip on the bike from here to Atlanta as soon as I crossed the TN/Ga line I had to do 80+ to keep from getting run over!

    That and traffic. It sucks.

    We also have a lot of wannabee fast and furious. That's where the new law is aimed at. Too many deaths and accidents. Particularly on I-85.
