+1, especially in an airplane I paid for/built/insure. Curious how an insurance company would look at that one. Beware of get-there-itis forcing you to become a test pilot, or worse.
I have landed in 50+ gusting 70+ in a light twin, but that was under extreme circumstances, and it wasn't my airplane.
