Okay, so I was coming home from lifeguarding on this other road called Hidden Valley, its like a bigger decker, but the turns are a lot bigger and so its still fun, but its easy for anyone in a faster car to win, because the turns are pussy easy, yo just need a reasonable set of balls. anyways, so Im on my home, and I was really in the mood for a good run, and this cop passes me going the other direction, kinda jumped me, but I kept going at speed limit, he never turned around. then as Im going I see this new BMW grill in my mirror bout' 1/4 mile back, he is slowly catching up to me, so I slow down to let him come up, and I floor it around this one turn to see how he reacts, and he comes around it fast, but he was a really sloppy driver so he understeered really bad. but I said whatever and just started going at a decently fast speed(75) and he was keeping up from about 200 feet behind me, so I slowed down more to make it more interesting. and he wasnt doing too too bad, but still not what I expected. he really started to suck at driving, but I gave him a thumbs up for atleast trying. we had fun, it was good stuff. he gave me a thumbs up and a peace sign, then I gunned it on the straight and hit 115, he onyl did like 90. I was suprised. anyways, so I turned into my street, he gave me another peace sign and a honk. good man. glad to know there is one more person around me that appreciates their car.

he probably wasnt that good at driving thru twisties... as far as the straight, he is probably still breaking it in. if he actually went for it, he would eat you up alive.

People usually don't push their rev's for far longer than 600 miles. Most wait atleast 3 grand.

Surprised he only went 90? n

Man, you can drive as recklessly as you want; even fast enough to get a big dollar ticket, lose your license, or even have your car seized depending on local laws.

Most of us don't want to take those kind of risks, especially with such a difference in the vehicles. (Your bimmer was way outmatched.)

Anyways, he was probably holding back so you could take the ticket for him... :P

teh straight though, there is no space for a cop to hide, Ive driven it many times, its only about 1/4 mile long, and you can see the turn ahead and behind so you can see if any cops are approaching. I think he just didnt know. but still, I thought that with the way he was driving the previous turns, that he would drive the straight fast, itd be tight to have him pass me. Id love to do 90 and have some new bimmer just fuckin rip by me at 130

Once upon a time, I would make it a point to go over 100mph every day.

two speeding tickets later, I'm much calmer.

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.
