Saw the needle go to nearly 170mph on my Kwak 900 and had to pull to the side to let the bike behind pass, albeit very slowly!
Bike was supposed to do a true 155 tops so I guess it was doing thereabouts.April 9, 2004 at 8:27 pm #18334AnonymousInactive
150 …ish on my Duke ST4S I say ish because I couldn’t focus clearly ‘cos my eyes were rattling about in their sockets April 12, 2004 at 2:02 pm #18335Marsha67Participant
A very scaredycat 110mph on my 600 Honda. I’ll have to try better (on the Autobahn!)April 17, 2004 at 5:55 pm #18336AgentPantsParticipant
Hello all i have done 140 twice the first on a yam 1000 exup ru going to cleathorpes on the M180 that was a doddle. The 2nd time on the A614 into nottingham (the bit passed Clumber Park) now this one did put the fear of god in me, just it 140 mph and a car/caravan started to pull out of a side road about 800metres away,brakes,down the gears and a slight wobble and safley passed but that was my ton+ days done. That was on a zx6r.April 17, 2004 at 8:14 pm #18337imperialdataKeymaster
Now I must point out that the 170mph I said I did above (on a 155mph bike!) was ‘indicated’ not actual and all speedos can overread. When I re-read my post it made me look a bit like I’d had one too many beers down the pub. Please can someone put a higher speed down to take the pressure off me?April 17, 2004 at 8:21 pm #18338hammyModerator
Sorry, can’t beat that. 145mph on a XJR1300 but we were two-up!April 18, 2004 at 7:50 am #18339SidevalveParticipant
Nor me, but got the YPVS off the clock. Call it 125 indicated. Wobbled like Venessa Feltz after six vodka’s. Not nice…but kinda fun.April 18, 2004 at 5:11 pm #18340wheelieParticipant
I heard she was not nice but kinda fun after a few vodkas too
@Plumbdoctor: Does the Duke vibrate a lot or is it only at 150?
I’ve donated to the forum, have you?
