Topped out my bike this morning

On my DRZ400SM I topped out at a whopping 91MPH (indicated) Not to bad considering I'm 185 and had about 10lbs of stuff in the soft saddlebags,I wasn't tucking and is basically all stock.

I know I'm such a squid

has not much to do with power, and more to do with gearing

And congrats Brydman, hope you are comfortable witht he "flighty" feeling of the Drizzers at speed. Just be xtra careful if you do that between two staggered semi trucks! I'm really hoping to be able to make it out on the next SM ride!
