Gotcha, makes me wonder how many of my speeding tickets have been a "little off". I like the GPS idea a lot actually because it will help me find some 4wheeling trails in the summer as well. Thanks for the idea!

Well, a car is ALOT different than a tucked human being. A car has a huge amount of surface area for the radar gun to ping back, while a person who is tucked properly has almost next to nothing for the gun to ping back from. But yeah, have fun with clocking your speed!

Oh it'll be a blast, I know I've gotta be going pretty quick, I'd want to guess between 30 and 40 mph, but it's really hard to judge considering 20 on a board could feel like 50 in a car Right now wouldn't be the best time, they need to open up more of the mountains to really get into the position to haul ass. I'll let everybody know when I find out how fast I can go

I once made it up to .35 mph on the bunny hill.

Haha, I'm hoping for 40mph but we'll see. I'll either be embarassed by the results or stoked.

Nah I think everyone gets interested into how far you can push it. The GPS is awesome though, I hit 102KPH coming out of a run last year. Its perfect for speed. Double diamond pitch but gets groomed. Steep and smooth. Then it rides straight out into a bit flat plain. You can see the whole length of the run so your only gonna take out yourself.

I know what you mean SnowJoe, the cartwheel of doom. I haven't done that in quite some time and boy am I glad. It really hurts on those groomed runs, and makes you drown in the deep deep stuff.

No Keystone for me Stunterguy, but if you go to Loveland, I'll see ya there.
