Strange how there are no fatalities on a road where the difference in speed between cars on the same stretch going the same way can be 100kph or more, that's a closing speed not many would be used to.

The article says that most cars are sitting on 140kmh, which to me seems about as fast as the average driver in the average car should be going.

All our highways should be at least 130 maybe 140

I agree when you're on the Hume 110 seems too slow.

True but what happens when the see me approaching from behind at 240 in the Lexus.....err mhh approaching in the Speciale'

They could easily panic and try to move out of the way in the wrong direction.

But it doesn't seem to happen so it must be ok in real life.

Not with the traffic density and abysmal driving standards that we have on Melbourne's freeway systems. Out in the sticks on the Hume perhaps.

You don't have to worry if you are Lexus driver. The car will move out the way if you can get to 240.

The one I test drove didn't sound like that.....someone ought to be fired for very bad aerodynamic work.

Buzzing a Slower rider at high 2's is only dangerous for the other rider doing the same speed behind you as the Slower bike will be all over the road after the first pass.
