    Well, you may not believe it but it feels almost "safer" to me. My bike is so stable at speed, its hard to tell how fast you are going. :o On another note, when you are riding down the highway and drop it down 3 or 4 gears and pin the throttle you gotta remember that its only a few seconds till you double your speed, it sneaks up on you so fast its not funny, you look down at the speedo and see that it says 265, 300 whatever and you yell out "HOLY FUCK" and let off the throttle :eek2: . Hmmm , Im going riding!

    165 MPH ( not sure what that is in km/h ) in the eclipse two or three years ago... friend was with me... My car has been modified more since then and top speed should be at least 20 km/h more now.

    edit: 265 km/h = 165 mph... so I should be able to bury the needle now ( 290 km/h )....and we all know how inaccurate speedos are at that high a speed... so I am not claiming I can do 290 km'h in real life.

    Yeah, speedo's are very inacurate at high speeds. They are not calibrated for anything much higher than the speed limit. My buddy Jamie and I used his old mans hand held radar gun (his dad is Truro RCMP) and clocked my old Talon TSi at 137 mph, (boost controller, HKS wastgate, 3 inch mandrell bent exhaust, K&N and regulator) while the speedo read almost 165 mph. I was pretty dissapointed. It takes a big jump in power to get even the smallest speed increase out of your ride at high speed.

    Darren is right, speedo error is huge at high speed.
    There are alot of people out there that think they are going alot faster than they actually are, especially bike guys. There are formulas out there to find out exactly how fast you are going, based on gearing, tire circumference, engine rpm.
    I only know what I have gone in the race car, just slightly over 150mph at Mosport and Mt Tremblant, it was geared for exactly that. I hit the rev limiter in 6th on my TLR last year, redlined my Si in 4th, it won't accelerate any in 5th. The speedo on the TLR read 295, was actually between 260-270, Civic was just over 200, no idea what it does at redline in 4th with 15's...Slow anyway.

    Gotta love centrifical force... :lol:

    The faster you go on a bike, the more it wants to stay upright. It's the force of the spinning wheels. That's why if you've seen someone on T.V. racing a bike, and fall off, often their bike keeps going without them.

    Fastest I ever went on my bike was about 170-180kmph, in a car, about 200-210 kmph...
