I was on a famous stretch of highway
here in Jersey doing 'bout 150 - 155
mph...... needless to say I don't need to
do that again.

Hit 125 and the bike shut down (89 Can-o-tuna) while trying to chase my buddy down who hit 180 on his 900RR these were nice sweeping roads down by the Missisippi In MN on his 900RR I hit 145 around a sweeping curve thats it.

I do not see how anybody can get any vehicle up to a speed that fast on a public road and not hit somebody or drive off a 40% turn in the highway. In Houston by the time you get to 125 mph you have to hit the brakes to make the turn, or get around someone.
you must have never visited LA then..

i was feelin brave 2day and hit the limiter. last time i looked at the speedo it was pegged(185). not sure if the speedo was correct but going that fast didnt scare me...it was slowing down.
i plan on gettin a TRE in the future to elliminate the speed limiter but i dont think i have the testicular fortitude to go any faster.

Given the multiple calculations involving the fact that the surface of the earth is rotating around the center of the earth at about 1000 miles per hour and the earth is traveling around the sun and the sun around the milkyway and the milkyway around the universe, I can not answer this question.

OK, for real. I hit about 130 on my old VFR. I had the balls to go faster but the 68 Camaro started to pull on me and my bike had little left. But you guys with the 170 plus...! Are you kidding? Where in God's name are you doing this? Aren't you afraid of going to jail for like 200 years? I don't know what to say... wow.
