    That was after the insurance company had a cow. One of the supervisors had a speeding ticket framed. 126mph in a 55 zone from Ohio. My truck after was turned down would still do everything on the speedometer . Chased down a Ninja motorcycle one night . He could have left me anytime he wanted to. Pulled up behind him about 300 rpm past 85, and flashed the move over lights. He looked around to see what was wanting by. He saw that grille , him and his bike looked like it was made out of Jello! He pulled over and I shot on by . Dropped back to 85 and set the cruise , never saw him the rest of the night.

    The good ol days haha, I remember they were large cars, didn't know how large they were until I was running with one of their drivers one night, and he told me 76. That was like early to mid 90's sometime, I thought about going over there, but drivers told me there weren't many miles so I never looked into it.
