I have not found the top yet but going down 696 Sunday I figured I was doing around 90mph looked down 110mph oops.

I have never exceeded 25mph or recommended shift rpm on my bike.

I just heard a loud chorus of booms, that must have been about two dozen bullshit detectors experiencing catastrophic overload........ :D

I understand Mudpuppy. I had a cop ask me in passing once how fast the Concours will go and I told him "55." I've never gone over 55.

I think the fastest I've gone on the fat boy is 105 ish. Solid wheels , up right position , wind , shitty Michigan roads made it feel like I was in the middle of a poor decision. I don't know where my old time slips are, think its mid 80's in the quarter.

150 on the Concours, between Vanderbilt and Gaylord. I only did it one time about 3 years ago. They say she'll do 165 but I don't think I'll ever see it.

LMAO, I'm sure you would. I'm too damned big to get behind the windshield and the wind was hitting my shoulders making it hard to stay on the bike. I just can't tuck my shoulders in.

Yes, you must say,"on a private course," otherwise you could be encouraging others to act irresponsibly.
