Does a speeding cyclist sh*t in the woods?

Simply not the case duckmeister. Driving and avoiding accidents is completely different between the road and the track. If you can't see that then that is a worry. The simple fact is that accelerating during corners is not needed for safe and sensible driving.
Actually, you'd be surprised how often accelerating while cornering actually happens by necessity. Or do you just sit at intersections going nowhere because you won't accelerate around the corner into the street you're entering......
The open road is a different thing, the limit is lower, but as I said Australia is not Germany. We do not have a whole lot of alternatives to many of our rural freeways (the ones built by taking over the existing highways) so often slower vehicles - including some cyclists - may need to share them. This is not the case in Germany, where extensive separate bike paths exist, even for long distances in the rural areas.
