Thumbs up Top Speeds

Just wondering what is the fastest you've ridden and on what kind of bike?

Literbikes are limited around 184-186. My earlier bike a Z1000 would do an indicated 176 before rev limiter.. I try to top out every vehicle I own, at least once.

173 mph - 2003 ZX-6R

Redline was higher, but I ran out of balls/stupidity. At those speeds, when the thought of dropping your bike or hitting a moose start playing through your head, it brings you into check VERY fast.

It is not uncommon for me to go ripping up the interstate over 150... but it never lasts more than a mile before I start thinking about all that shit. Then the "fun" 150 and climbing becomes a "scared shitless" 150 and slowing down.

mainerdr is right about the speedos. From factory they are all off. I have seen 172 on my gsxr 750 speedo.

Judging by that photo, one could be forgiven that you've already decided what type of "bike" you ride.
