I can only echo these sentiments. I have spent some time in Montana by car
and by motorcycle. In the car (87' Jetta) we ran about 85 and were quite
happy. On the bike, I ran a bit faster, of course the Jetta tops out
around 115 and the bike tops out at 145. As a percentage of top speed, the
bike was loafing compared to the car and was significantly more stable.
Something designed to be capable of 145 is fairly docile at 120.
Something designed to run at a max of 100 (Geo tracker) is a major handful
Of course an Audi would be the best of both worlds. ;-)
My opinions are my own.
