I got a front end loader to do 35 MPH, once, on a surface street.
Could have another 2 or 3 MPH's from her if the old lady didn't pull out in front of me!!! /images/icons/laugh.gif

The R1 doesn't go 176mph. According to the speedo probably yeah, but not in reality. 168,169 is more like it.

Let other people be right sometimes...it soothes them for being nothing else!

'99 RX7?!?! Wasn't aware they were available stateside after about '96. Could be wrong though. Anyway, I've seen 140 on my 750 so far, 169 on the R6, and 171 on this chick's R1!!!!

All these are indicated speeds. All stock geared except +1 rear on R6.

Airman Hwy 83 (parker rd) is where I got my ticket in my old car. I was doing about an indicated 160 when I started slowing down and then saw this car coming up and he got me at 112 and gave me one for 93 because I had a motorcycle decal on my car and had a bike too. Still that was a healthy ticket and forced me to sell my car. Anyways on the bike I've done about 140 on the F3 and maybe 100 on the 929. Still not broke in.

I can kill a yak from 200 yards away....With MIND BULLETS!!!

27mph on a 2 stroke skateboard, 178 on a Mille RSV-R, 186 on an 02 Daytona, neither stock and both paced by a ZX-12 with a calibrated speedometer!

176 indicated i thought since the speedo does not pick up off the front wheel and being pulse driven i think the era is minimal not like previous wheel driven speedos.

171MPH (indicated) on Highway 190 in Death Valley. I think it probably would have gone a little bit faster, though.

And indicated 186mph with the tach needle in the red (thanks to the TRE)
followed by an F-15 with a calibrated windspeed gauge :D, on I-135 (max speed attained in less than 1.5 mi.

158 on I-75 in Michigan just north of the Ohio border. There was 6 of us all going to Mid-Ohio for the races last July and it was early on a Saturday morning. There was no traffic, nice new pavement and we were all doing over a buck and a half.
