Mine was an '85 FJ1100.

A bunch of riding buddies and I stopped at Boggan's Oasis, which is at the bottom of Rattlesnake Grade. I went into the restroom to lighten - and I swear as soon as the door latched, they hauled ass. Which is fine, I didn't like some of the guys in the group anyway. Problem is, I didn't know where we were going...

Once you work your way up out of that little canyon (heh), it's pretty much flat and straight all the way to Enterprise, so I twisted the hyperspace selector to 'full'. I can't tell you how fast I was going. Really, I couldn't- the speedometer ran out of digits and the needle was pointing between 'P' and 'H'. I know it only took about a third of the hour and nineteen minutes to cover the distance Google Maps says it does.

Of course, all of that happened on a closed course, professional stunt rider, and besides, the statute of limitations expired years ago.
