Here's something funny. I had checked out your RHC site from when I was a Mustang forum nut over a year ago. So I've seen you around from the Mustang world.
I don't have a bike yet, but hopefully can buy a ZX-9 in 2005. Btw, I have a 96 Mustang with a headswap and other work that puts out about 305 hp at the flywheel. One day coming home from Flagstaff I gave it a go and hit over 160 mph. The speedo was past what would have been 170 (it was about a 1% downhill grade), but I'll throw in a little speedo error even though I've corrected the 'stock' speedo error and verified via a GPS device that it's dead on at 70 mph.
I'll tell ya, that was fun in a car - I can't imagine how much more fun it is on a bike. And my car was plenty stable.
