I was touching 157mph on the speedo of my 1997 F3 just the other day. It actually felt like I could have gotten a few more mph out of it, if my helmet would quit trying to peel off my head!!

Soon, I will be putting my GPS on it, to compare speedo error, and actual top speed.

Once I get my '97 Yamaha close to 220kph or a hair under it, this is going up hills for basically cops are only looking for speeders comming down the rolling mtn roads, there is suddenly a vacume all around me.

Same on the Honda 929 or 954, & not a bit of wind is touching me like my helmet, feet, arms etc. Even the exhaust note is so different for that is outside of the vacume & YES it is so quite inside that vacume like it is in another world ONLY the once very wide & super smooth road has become very narrow & bumpy as old 'ell PLUS that dot ahead could be a big 18 wheeler or a number of them & you are on them within seconds, but fortunately in said hills they are in the slow lane with warning lights on due to the slow pace they are at.

I noticed a similar thing a couple of months ago, when overtaking a truck on a rural highway. As I pulled alongside him, I got into his slipstream and the bike took off like I'd hit the giggle-gas!!

However, when I pulled past him, it was like hitting a wall as the wind effect took control again. But, sh*t that short period of time when I was in that stream was awesome!!



(I know someone's going to mention being sucked into trucks, but I had nowhere to go. He was on one edge of the road, I was on the other.)

It very hard to get sucked into the side of a truck.

Today on the interstate, I flew up between a minivan and a tractor trailer, that were only about 8-10' apart, at 90mph. I did not feel one bit of pull on the bike. It was just as stable as if I were all alone. As long as you keep steady,and brace yourself for any wind characteristics, your fine.
