Now I`m not bragging but I went for a run to Gold River yesterday and on one of the long straights with no traffic I thought I would do top speed run.Got tucked down and at 10,500 rpm(redline is 11,000) got to 260kmh(158mph).Only later did I realize I was in 5th,still had another gear.Was still exillarating though.
I hit 160 on the speedo(actual?)and even tucked behind the bubble it felt like my helmet was going to be ripped off my head.The turbulence started to blur my vision so I backed off.We have a lot of open highway with no traffic out here.....there is a time and a place for everything!
Fun, isn't it???I've been to 165mph (on the speedo) MANY times..And yes!!The wind moves your head all over the place...Bike stays nice and smooth, but the turbulence around my helmet is unreal..Have fun and be safe!!!!
