Where can you do top speed runs legally?

Hey guys, is there a place in Houston with a straight stretch of pavement where you can see how fast your bike goes (without getting arrested lol).
Like an airfield landing strip you can rent or something

yep the Texas mile, but you only have a mile to accelerate. They have 2 mile events a year i believe.

trackdays cost less than $260. Texas world speedway is your best chance at 150+mph.

If you just want to know whats the top speed of your bike you can try gearing commander and type your gearing if not stock.

If you really wanna see how it feels at top speed then pm me for location!

Who cares how fast it goes? Just read in the mags what your bike can do, and do a little math for your mods and weight and you'll be in the ballpark.
