I want to go just fast enough to keep up with local 35-40mph traffic on dangerous twisting turning hilly roads with no shoulder in Puerto Rico where the drivers tend to be quite ignorant and aggressive.
Believe me, fast enough will be safer.

The thread is titled "faster is safer" for my particular case, and by no means in general.
I'm a 28 year MC biker and have covered 10's of thousands of miles without major incident.
The faster you go the harder you fall.
