    You travel farther as speed increases for the same given period of time. In this case that period of time is 0.75 sec for each speed.

    194.2 = "total" stopping distance (total = reaction + braking)

    Reading is awfully hard for a retard such as you, isn't it? Did you make it past 8th grade? I trust that you aren't indicative of the general populous down there in Tennessee.

    Tell me about it!

    92 in a 55 in Greensboro, NC in my Infiniti; not a cheap ticket but I wasn't cited for reckless driving

    Looking at the graph,at first glance, I have to agree that the reaction time seems a bit long. Of course, that is assuming that you are paying full attention and are ready for anything to happen, and know exactly what course of action you are going to take. I doubt that any of us can honestly make that claim every time we are on a bike. 0.75 seconds may not be quite as far off as you first think.

    Now, as for the braking itself, I don't see much problem there at all. 30 ft per second per second is a little over 0.9g acceleration. I know that I can achieve higher braking forces than that, but not every time. ABS would certainly help in that respect, but not all bikes have that, nor do I think they should.

    Of course, none of this applies to our local divinty, the god-like IHeart.

    A god's reaction time is in the negative due to their precognitive abilities

    "you shouldnt be speeding then :deal"

    "If you drove the limit you wouldn't get a ticket!"

    "Slow down before you kill someone!"

    "I'm with stupid"

    "You're an asshole. Take that shit to the track"


    "If you did that shit and killed my little girl, you'd wish it was Chuck Norris after you."

    "You're gonna die one day"

    "Oh, so you think that just because you drive a fancy car, you can go those speeds?"

    "what a douche"

    "Why do you promote speeding in school zones?"

    "You know that's not safe, right?"

    So speed = time over distance?


    Well hell! That supports my nation-wide 30 limit then!


    Why the hell are people in such a hurry anyway? Don't they know speed kills?

    You can't even get that right. Seriously, if I was a TN resident I would demand every tax dollar that ever went to IhearmyNx's education back. I assumed the grammar issues were because English was not your primary language, and I was willing to cut you some slack, but your ability to completely miss the relevant facts in a post, or thread, is simply mind boggling. You need to lay off the weed for a while, the few brain cells you have left are circling drain at an alarming rate.

    Dude. You'd have a cow or embolism one, if everyone that wasn't as smart as you had an internet connection...

    Chuck Norris's bike has a Quantum braking system. It reverses the direction of space time around him and the bike actually stops in a position 10 feet before the brakes were even applied, regardless of speed.
    While that doesn't sound like a Chuck-ism, please realize, Steven Hawkings looks the way he does because he refused to sell the bike to Chuck many years ago.

    Thank you for making my point. :clap What did you actually think you were saying when you typed "You'd have a cow or embolism one,"? Did you mean to say that you think I might embolism a cow?
