I'd not consider the mentioned speeds by the OP that fast either. Not meaning to offend, just being honest. Still great story and one we've all experienced and can relate too. It really doesn't matter the speed. There's always someone faster.

Yeah, that's really not a defense. If someone is being frank about their speed, there's no reason to post the "I'm too fast to care about your story" snark.

The only reason I'd put down someone for their numbers is if they were condescending to me or someone else and my numbers were better. That's just begging for it.
