I got pulled over for racing on a runway in NH last year. My friend and I were doing about 60 on the Saffaris, and when we stopped, the police lady walked over and gave us a warning. I didnt know better

Were I manely ride it is about 50% woods and the other fields. Average speed is about 40-50mph. There are a lot of fields that are long and straight so speed is a factor. Last year the DNR put a 50mph speed limit in effect so that kind of sucked. but they didn't put on this year!! so far that is. Lakes are seldom for me but when I do get the chance WFO.
Speed limits can be a good thing, but for the most part I do not like them. NH. has kind of slow limits 45mph. is the most common. My brother and I know all too well doing 68 in a 45 cost $108. and the penalties get much worse from there. We witnessed a poor soul have his artic cat loaded onto a flatbed and him taken away for doing just over a 100mph on the same trail. It was almost not fair the trail turned onto a rail bed and about 2miles strait very wide. About 11/4miles up sat a team of enviremental police in a large cavity from the ledge, and us too. You could hear the sleds just wind up as they cornered onto the strait away. All we could do was sit in line awaiting our turn for a fine feeling bad for the next victom comming up the trail. I was told 55mph was thier cutoff speed everything over was yanked. In the time we sat a good 45 minutes plus, that was everyone on the trail.
Mass. is not much better I guess to a police officer nothing has to be reasonable or everything is reasonable depends on how good thier coffee is.
Me., Quebec, Vt. all seem to be if you have common sense you are doing "OK"
