I;ve hit 165 indicated, so I'm guessing actual speed was about 150. Plenty fast, but I still wasn't puckered.

Yea... Ive top out plenty of times, but Im on a 600 so 163 indicated is all it will do. Not pucker speed but I dont really see a need to go any faster than that haha.

Now triple digit turns on Crabb FTMFW!!!!

I topped out my 600's plenty of times. You wouldnt believe the difference 20-30 mph can make. Its magnified on a bumpy road.

Not so much pucker, more of a "I can hardly breathe and it feels like my helmet is about to rip off my head and I'm going crosseyed" feeling.

Robert, let me know when you do some more "testing"
I wanna run the GPS and see what the TRE will let the 10R do.
Then I will be able to answer the "pucker speed" question.

it did for some part of the little sprint, but the wind was holding pretty consistantly and was worse than the past few days.

Birds fleeing for their life can make things very interesting. Then you get a dog in the road. Thats always good times.

After taking corners plus 100 going in hot makes for pucker moments.

On highspeed runs Im calm but I tend to hold my breath, focusing on what ahead I assume. But anything over 150 I focus ahead very cautiously.
