Re: a day on german autobahn ;-)

Dude shifts into his final gear @ 280+km/h. There is nowhere on the planet that I need to get to at that rate of speed. 'Course I was 20 years old way back when... mighta been a different perspective.

Re: a day on german autobahn ;-)

I drive the Autobahns in Germany once or twice a year (including that Augsburg to Munich section many times), and am always amazed at being passed like I'm standing still even though I'm going 200 km/h. I've never seen the aftermath of a moto crash at those speeds, but I'm sure it would be messy.

My personal favorite section of autobahn is the 95 south from Munich to Garmisch-Partenkirchen (not a weekend or holiday though). One you clear the urban Munich area you have unlimited speed and very few cars coupled with beautiful scenery and the Alps in front of you.

In case you were wondering.

299 kph = 186 mph
280 kph = 174 mph
200 kph = 124 mph

All are way faster than I want to drive.

I'd really be ticked if that guy scratched my custom rear bumper.

Re: a day on german autobahn ;-)

The fastest I've gone on a bike (both in the US and on the autobahn) is 210kph (130mph) because my bike wouldn't go any faster.

Still 300kph+ is insane while 210kph is only stupid.

Agreed. I did 175 (mph) on one a couple of times in my wilder days. It was fun. I lived.

Never again.

Re: a day on german autobahn ;-)

Off topic a bit. An acquaintance drives cars professionally (though not as fast as he used to). He showed me a Mercedes commercial today they filmed last summer where he was the driver. All the high speed segments were filmed at 20 mph -- and sped up in the video -- while the slow speeds were filmed at 70 mph and slowed down. Anyone know why?

1. Control. The action happens too fast to get the shot at high speeds. The video also looks more realistic when slowed down.

2. Timing. The more frames you have the more you have to work with in e editing process blending and tweening.

I figured the slo-mos used the speed in some manner like that but I don't understand how they get more frames since it is a quicker shoot. Speeding up slow movement makes sense as you have the frames and can play with acceleration. All said with the benefit of ignorance, or whatever Tommy Magliozi used to say when he was making things up.
