Hmmmm.. I race and I still have fun doing top speed runs. Maybe I need to race for another 15 years to feel the same way you do. :waytogo: Its always fun to see just how fast your bike that you spent all that hard earned money on will really go. :grin:

I don't race, yet. Business has been the priority for the better part of the last 2 years. I'll probably get my WERA license this year at some point. And I'll probably be down at Jennings in December, so I look forward to getting on the track with.

As of now I'm just limited to short weekend trips to BeaveRun, VIR, Summit Point, Mid Ohio, and probably make it to Barber in Oct.

My 600RR goes to 999 mph.

or at least that's what it says when I put the key in the ignition and turn it on.

On a similar note I was at the dealer yesterday and there was a kid well maybe a little older, he looked about 22 (j/k) :grin:, well anyway, he was going around looking at the bikes speedo's (analog) saying "wow this one goes 180". He was looking at a FZ1. I said do you know that, he said "cause that's what the speedo's highest reading is. /wwwthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Oh dear!!!!!!!! I hope he doesn't get the loan for a bike :help:

I can see the insurance raising :bawling:

I hit 168 on mine and I know it can't go that fast. So I took my Garmin (GPS) along one time and it indicated 155 and I was at redline reading 168...so don't always believe your speedo when at high speeds. I can't believe some people think just because it reads up to "190" it will do it. Maybe the kid will believe you now.

Does anyone have a link that I can email assclown to prove that his R6 will not go 180mph.
I done 176 on my 00 R6. but I bought it in the UK from a guy who worked for Mclaren and I'm pretty sure he had it chipped and a 3 stage map, but to awnser your question assclown is right an R6 can pull off and has bee. known to be able to get 188 max with mods.....
