Exclamation This is a super SQUID type thread but....

What is the fastest that you've ever gotten your bikes up to? Both on and off of the track. I have only been to the track once, and it was on a 250cc bike, got to the top end though...like 80. My fastest was a GSXR 750, 160mph. I have on at least 1 occasion topped out every vehicle I've owned, next up the 929 I just bought. Im not bragging..if anything I'm just looking to see if I am the only dumbass who feels the need to top out their rides.

trolling... trolling... trolling, in case you arn't, yeah, I like to find a long straight lonly road from time to time, I think the highest I've hit on a bike was indecated in the low 160 range, but speedo's can be WAY off by then. But I plan to keep that mostly on the track from now on. I've hit higher in a cage, 176 verified by onboard GPS, and I ran out of road, that's the only car or bike I never topped out, but then again it's a BMW with a V12 under the hood, it was still pulling hard for 170+.

I've had my tack between 150 and 160 before. It stayed there for awhile and wouldn't go any higher, so I think that's the limit.

If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

You had 150-160 thousand rpms on your "tack"? I knew these things could rev to the moon, but holy blown motors Batman!

Top speed

Saw 179mph on the speedo on a long, straight, low-traffic highway in New Mexico. Accounting for speedometer error, the real speed must have been closer to 165mph. Pretty common for the speedo to hit 150 a couple of times a year.

I've only taken the bike racing at a dragstrip, where it hits about 120-125.
