More than a year because I was going to college in Bozeman at the beginning of the 90's and we skirted the edges of that "Reasonable and Prudent" law on motorcycles. We could make Bozeman to Billings in just over an hour (it's 140-ish miles). I used to have a copy of the "Waste of natural resources" ticket for 182mph... roommate had the same for 198mph, just couldn't quite get to 2-tons, and he tried Several times (blocked off road, LEO friend).


Wouldn't be smart to try that now. Also, night time speed limits drop about 10mph, not that you want to be out-driving your headlights anyway, too many animals.

I would have enjoyed riding with you guys. Here in Mo, the fastest I got to was 160(in a 55 zone). Roads here are crap for high speed travel, and there is way too much traffic(and stupidity) these days for such things. Ahhh, the way things used to be...

I took a picture of my speedometer going 110 mph in Montana.
