Meh, depends on how fast he's actually going, and what kind of sole his boots have. I've planted a foot a time or two on pavement, but not with grippy boots...

Something like this, more 'foot down' than 'leg out'...



Only done it in the rain or when there's something in the road that might give me trouble...

I don't know if it's related to his death or if it's usually like this..... but..... there were no less than 8 speed traps..... 5 in a 1/2 mile span..... by evening this past weekend.

Don't get caught doing 57 in a 30 on the dragon..... unless you've got great boobs and the cop who turned around to pull ya over has a thing for redheads.

Sarcasm! And as far as I remember, ABS was an option for 2010, became standard later on.

So... All kinds of evidence of the 57 in the 30, but no evidence of the great boobs. You can't allege that you've got great boobs unless you're going to demonstrate said boobs so we can determine their greatness on our own. This is not something you can determine for yourself. Your bias is obvious. You need at least 30 objective, non-biased, complete strangers on the internet to determine that for you. So... let's see 'em.

FAIL. Highbeams on during the day.
I've been told that apparently it blinds or confuses other road users.
