My sole mode of transportation from my  college
days until 1988 was a Honda CB900F super
sport with dual disc  brakes up front and one
in the rear and 100 bhp engine output.
It was a  rocket ship but I didn't use its
abilities to break the speed laws.  I  used them
mainly to stay out of everyone else's way.
These ranged from  distracted mothers fighting
with the kids in the back seat to a little old  lady
who would look you in the eyes as you approached
then make a left  turn into your path trying  to turn 
you into a hood   ornament.

those were the good old days for sure.....

( I brought  my new coco3 home on it strapped
to the cargo rack in back right through the  middle
of town) :)
