Was on the interstate cruising about 75 behind some other cars. Saw an opening, so I dropped it down to 3rd and nailed it. Usually I will take 3rd to about 11 grand on the tach, and then pop it into 6th and cruise back down to a safe speed. But all I saw was open road with no cars, so I said "[censored] it" and redlined 3rd, then redlined 4th, and then redlined 5th, then 6th. Speedo was reading 195, but since I dropped a tooth in the front sprocket I assume I was going about 160+.

What a rush! It really amazed me how quickly I got through the gears. I cant believe how hard the bike was still pulling when I redlined 6th.

Before last night, I had redlined the bike in 3rd, but never in 4th, 5th, or 6th.

It scared the total [censored] out of me, but it was a total rush.

What a bike! I can only imagine what a 12r feels like!
