Thread: Highest speed I have seen on M50, or anywhere in Ireland... :-0

    Highest speed I have seen on M50, or anywhere in Ireland... :-0

    Heading northbound on M50 on Sunday (29/12) around midday, between exit 16 ->15, it's just around the end of the 120kph zone.

    I was overtaken by a sports bike at a truly heroic pace: I was @120kph, and judging by the rate it appeared and then disappeared it had to have been doing >>> 200kph. Truely, it was as if we were standing still.

    Not knowing much (anything) about bikes I have no idea about response/ braking times, etc relative to a car, but bearing in mind exit 15 is that for Leopardstown races which were on yesterday, the M50 was far from empty. The chaps position & movement on the bike reminded me of road race clips... clearly a chap who knew what he was doing, but on a busy M50??

    As best I can recall very little in the way of lighting or number plates visible. In truth, I only saw him in my mirrors a second before he screamed by

    I was heading down the M9 a few months ago doing 160+ overtaking a few cars and heard a noise approaching me, I pulled back in and a guy on a bike passed me like I was sitting still.
    He had to be doing 100 more than I was..
    Unbelievable stuff...

    Surely we have all hit 260+ on m50 racing for pink slips after c&c meets. I thought that was normal?
