    It's a 12 minute trip at 100km/h.

    For you to do it in 4 minutes means you had to have been doing 300km/h for the duration of the entire trip.

    *yawn*

    Next fantasy :roll:

    I tend to agree. 17.5km trip to be exact. Would have to have an average speed of 270 km/h for the entire distance to do it in 3min and 53secs.

    I did Collingwood Town Hall to Greensborough Plaza in 13 minutes once. I had a migraine aproaching, and once they hit, I used to lose my vision for a few hours. Had to get home. This was way before all of the cameras we have nowdays.

    Tell you what, next time you are up for it.

    We'll organise it and we'll time you.

    If you can do it in under 4 minutes there will be a surprise waiting for you at Springvale Road.

    What say you?

    Considering you'd have speed-up and slow-down times at both ends, it would have to be a real speed of no less than 300km/h all the way. Maybe at 3am in the morning with no traffic, but at around 2pm/3pm this afternoon with traffic, and potentially police, on it ?? I'd think you'd have to be a Darwin award contender to do that.

    I've never known there to be speed cameras along that section bikeraper mentioned. I could be wrong but I've never seen any or been caught by any..

    I'll be up for that Vic :p :lol:

    Speed up and slow down times are minimal on a thou :p Admittedly a bit harder when theres lotsa traffic but thats what the emergency overtaking lane is for ;) As for cops,cmon Mouth you know my thoughts on that already :lol: :lol: lmao @ darwin award contender :lol: :lol: :grin: ;)

    Thanks for clarifying, only been on it like twice.

    I reckon Vic's idea isn't a bad one. Can we have hint at what the surprise is Vic, huh huh, can we can we pleeeeeease? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I mean, no question, there are bikes out there that could sustain 4 minutes flat out @ 300kmph+ but to do it at 2.00pm on a Tuesday afternoon is a little hard to believe. Sorry.

    Good onya if it really happened... Still think it's the dumbest thing i've heard of.
