Ah, gotcha. Was wondering because I've taken an RSV1000 around at 140-150 indicated (nothing done to the sprockets/gearing that I know of) and from what I could recall, that video seemed off when I mentally added 20-40mph.

The idea of 150mph turns on a road bike is a bit

My bike was off 7% from the factory, and I went down two teeth in the front. My speedo error jumped to 18% (according to GPS). I had to correct it with a SpeedoDRD.

I can think of some that can and I'm fine with that. I'm too old to still try and feed my ego with " I'm the fastest guy around " But the majority of them are young punk kids who ride like fucktards. Some go just because they enjoy the scene. And I associate with a few people who do go but for the most part the type of crowd that goes there isn't the type that I like to associate with.

At least you're smart enough to realize that.

I'm just messing with him. Back when PP1 was established, it was just a group of us. 5-10 max and we didn't ride like those in the video. When PP1 starting growing that's when it started getting out of control. We stuck to our click, our route, our ride. Nobody died, I don't even think anyone wrecked, and surely the slower didn't get left behind. After awhile it was pretty massive and a lot of us found other things to do with our Wednesday's like go out to drink\eat instead and make fun of each other lol.

Once.. it was the Kokesh memorial ride.

On a side note, that's when I gave up riding like a fool. What a shame that's what it took.

I need to search your username to see if you still have it posted somewhere so I can view it again.
