How Fast...?

I don't really know if this is a stunting question, but I figured the guys into stunts have got to have had their bikes up to some high speeds. I have gotten my bike up to 155mph and decided to play it safe and not go any faster even though I had driven that road many times and had on all of my gear.
How fast have any of you gotten your bikes?
Anybody crazy enough to hit 200mph?

Being crazy enough to do 200mph, and actually doing it are 2 different things. There aren`t many bikes that will do 200mph. High speed runs aren`t really "stunts" either, but if you like high speed hooliganism, check out Ghostrider , 200+mph wheelies, 500hp turbo busa, 45 mile runs in 15 minutes on public roads... you get the idea.

Look . . . the people you are after are the people you depend on. We cook your meals, we haul your trash, we connect your calls, we drive your ambulances, we guard you while you sleep. Do not fu|< with us.

I know that driving fast isn't really a stunt, I am aware alot of bikes can't hit 200mph, but I just wanted to know if anyone with bikes capable of hitting 200mph have actually done that.

164 on the speedo maxed on my 01 r6. That was before my new engine though so we shall see if I gained any top speed shortly. BTW most stunters are lucky if there bikes will hit triple digits, due to gearing

Are we talking bone stock?
I know at Daytona they were running 1000RR's at 193mph, stock. Figure a few choice mods and you could break 200. HRC kit it (215HP) and its for sure.
The Busa, 12R and new crop of liter bikes have the Horsepower to hit 200 but they're limited by the control system and the gearing.

-1 +10 isn't too good for those high speed runs you have a point. My R6 on the other hand read 172 on the clock with stock gearing topped out in 6th though, which was probably only like what 160ish in real life?
