AND THE '04 GINANDTACOS AWARD FOR ACHIEVEMENT IN THE FIELD OF DRIVING GOES TO…..

Police in Wabasha, Minnesota issued a motorcyclist a ticket this week for driving 205 miles per hour on an interstate highway. That's 140 miles over, or 2.15 times, the speed limit.

Being a man who feels prepared to engage in intense driving when necessary, I am compelled to lavish such awards as the Ginandtacos Foundation for Highway Safety will allow on this gentleman.

His honorarium will consist of a Tom Collins toast in his honor, a bronze plaque of his speedometer at the velocity in question, and a bound and gilded set of MapQuest maps. Being the type of driver that he clearly is, he will of course discard the latter, understanding that maps are for pussies and rules of the road are for the God-fearing.

    3.15 times the speed limit

    whose side are you on Nick?

    If you speed more than 3x the speed limit I believe it's punishable under the patriot act; we are arguing in the poor man's defense.

    There comes a point in every motorcyclist's life when he has to choose just how much of a death wish he actually has. Aparently this man has a far greater one that the average person. Since his motorcycle, no doubt a crotch rocket of some variety would hardly make at dent in even the cheapest of imported cars thus making it nearly impossible for him to hurt others with his excessive speed, the man certainly deserves a ginandtacos hat tip for his gratuitous disregard for his own life.

    Dude. That's amazing. I hate people who drive insanely fast on motorcycles, but that's amazing. I actually think I admire this guy.

    Can you imagine the splat he'd leave on the pavement if he'd have wiped out at that speed?

    I'm thinking of the bug like mark he would make on a semi.

    Impressive to say the least.

    I have to quote a family friend of ours who served as county coroner for many years: "Fuck the body bags, we need a squeegee to clean this guy up".
