Wonder why these types of cars are not "geared" to say a max 120 mph and have the manufactures work on their 0 to 60 (or 100) times instead?
I would prefer to see faster 0-60 mph times than high top end speeds. The only problem with low gearing is poor mileage. My 2009 SRT can go 173 mph, but I will never use it.

When the witness came up around the corner where the traffic was at a dead stop, dumbshit and his bike were stuffed under the bumper of a truck.

He was always an idiot but its hard to feel bad for people who are that reckless. Just glad he didn't take out anyone else when he went.
And the news report will tell us whether or not he was wearing a helmet.
