I dont think this is a pissing contest, just that the blanket statement 
that nobody goes faster than 130 might be untrue. Ive personally done 
much more than that on the right conditions.... You're right, it isnt 
'real world' driving, on the hiway I do 65... but once in a while when 
the times are right, I open it up, and it doesnt take long to get to 130 
(relatively speaking...)
