I thought you were serious: if I weighed 300 I would be of significant width to affect air resistance.

Wonder what the Sprint will get.
This is all my bike will do, too. No wind screen, though, so it's not fun.

Back on a GSXR!!! 08 600









My gsxr would indicate 181. Actual was probably around 150. It indicated 181 on OEM size sprockets and with +1 +2. Would not indicate any higher.

All tests performed in Mexico

I bet if you ride on the back of mine, I would get a constant 65, with the occasional sudden brake check......you'll have to hold on tight or your will constantly get crammed into my back.

If not...plan B, I ride on the back of yours, you pin it, I use your breast as grab handles.....

Anything over 170 on back roads is asking for trouble. Been there done that, and not worth the risk. COTA on the other hand.

Sounds like it reaches top speed to me. Just that the top speed is not what you expected. Any speed any bike reaches is top speed. The top speed on my ZX6 is about 10 mph when I'm running alongside pushing it.
