Flyboyike did not ruin your post. He just pointed out the other side or the possible consequence of your action. Sort of reality check.

Also, if he didn't comment your post may have ended on the first page.
Just my observation.

Aaron (or whatever your name is), I hope when that when (not if) you end up in a tree you don't take anyone else with you.

Nobody has the right to be this reckless, no matter how fat their wallet.
Allow me to chime in. These vehicles are designed to travel at those speeds all day long on the German autobahn. Many rural highways in the US are perfectly capable of handling vehicles at that speed. While it is illegal to drive that fast in the US, it is no more ethically wrong than driving the same car at that speed on the autobahn.

I've driven at those speeds many times in many cars, none of which were as well qualified for it as his. So far no trees. So maybe that should in fact be an "if" and not a "when."

I didn't look at the videos, so I don't know how many other cars he encountered, but as long as the traffic wasn't an issue, I see no problem with driving at that speed. I've done it numerous times. Given a competent car and a competent driver, 130 on a rural highway is a hell of a lot safer than motoring around the mall watching out for drunks and cell phone toting idiots flying through red lights.

The fact that he was operating a videocamera at the same frickin' time
is the stupid part.
Speeding happens every day, and every driver at some time or another has
exceeded the speed limit. I confess to taking my car to 100mph on a 70mph-limit
motorway on a regular basis. Funny thing is, i'm not usually going any faster
than everyone else...
If i get a ticket/points, i'll take it like an adult.
If i get banned, it's my fault.
But i'd wanna be driving something a bit meatier than my W201 when that happens!

Yeah, good point there. Didn't really think about that.

If you notice, there is a black car that gets out of the way. After that, 1 mile of a 4 lane highway with 2 cars in the far right lane.

That quote is what I'm talking about by ruining my post. I don't care what people say as far as their own opinions, but to come out blasting like that? Saying stuff like that caused 5 or 6 extra posts that were not needed.

Sorry?
You posted a video of yourself on the internet breaking the speed limit by over
100% and seem to expect everyone to give you a fucking prize for it.
Take the rough with the smooth bro, and think yourself lucky you didn't overtake
an off-duty cop.

Personally, I thought it was hilarious that he took a couple of shots at your wallet size while posting on a MERCEDES BENZ FORUM. Ike, do you also make snide comments about owners' finances on Gulfstream forums?
