On my way home from Moab hauling sick TW about 11:30 at night on western edge of Dougway Bombing Range my GPS suddenly went a little nuts displaying the following speed.
Now 283 mph seemed a little fast even for the Loneliest Highway in middle of nowhere, no other lights or man made stuff for a good ten miles in any direction on the ground.No telling what was in the sky overhead. Lots of military stuff happens away from the public eye out here.
So I wondered was the 283 mph just a fluke in my GPS device or was something spoofing the time signals from the overhead satellite array. Dark Star, Aurora or some fiendly D.O.D experiment? North Korea or Vlad the Invader testing disruption of our defenses? Alien Overlords? Weak batteries? It remains an curiosity. Anyone else ever had GPS anomalies?
Thanks Borneo, the multipath error explains it well but I kinda liked the Alien Overlord theory.
I've had similar errors before but not quite that extreme.
2013 Yamaha TW200
1996 Yamaha TW200
1995 Kawasaki KLR650
2002 Yamaha RoadStar 1600 with sidecar
I'd say claim that top speed for the TW and accept challengers.. for pink slips.
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Well if a copper pulled you over saying you were speeding, you could not for sure that the speed he was quoting was wrong.
Fred, i think you found a worm hole in the desert and disrupted the space-time continuum in some way, if only for a brief period in time. The good news is, you didn't age at all in those minutes!
