Re: Top Speed? 04 Gsxr 600?

I have only been up to 157+(indicated on the speedo). I wasn't staring at the speedo (for obvious reasons), but that's what it read when I looked at it last. It had some more in it. I was probably only doing like 145+ in reality. It felt fast, that's for sure.

Top Speed Top Speed thats all I see. .... If you ever get caught doing over a 100 mph by the cops you can lose your license as you are DRIVING TO INDANGER. Save it for the track. I got caught on my 2002 R6 doing 90MPH and I got a 600+ speeding ticket. BE CAREFUL OUT THERE

One must realize that if you are doing 100+ you are prepared to "not get caught." by the police. Newyears day I hit 130mph as I lifted my first 3rd gear sit down wheelie. What a rush.

3rd comes up fine at 60 or 70.

If you are stupid enough to be doing 160mph on the highway you should loose your liscense. Any ways the cops WILL catch you.

Re: Top Speed? 04 Gsxr 600?

around here.. after 100 mph, cops have to stop the chase for safety purposes unless the conditions of traffic is safe to keep the chase.. they figure:

1. they gonna get away anyways
2. they will wreck
3. they will get caught next time

Re: Top Speed? 04 Gsxr 600?

its stupid to speed excessivly, but in a lot of areas there is an no chase law, especially with motorcycles. that doesn't mean they can't radio ahead and have many cops just waiting for you either. but most of the times at high speeds people wreck anyhow. a cop doesn't want or need to be blamed for the death of a motocyclist cause he was chasing him.

They don't care about the motorcyclist getting killed!!! They care about chasing you and you hitting the soccer Mom with a vanload of kids!! Reality check........ Do something stupid and who cares............ Cops don't high speed chase people because of the innocent people. NOT THE DUMBASSES THAT ARE DRIVING LIKE FUCKTARDS!!!!!!

C'mon now..........

Re: Top Speed? 04 Gsxr 600?

I agree! You can't be fuckin around in traffic. Shit happens!
I see guys riding hard in traffic around the city. At 100+ you can't avoid a 60mph merging soccor mom.
Where we go there is a 5 or 6 mile stretch of 4 lane "bypass" that was never finished. It might see 20 cars on a busy day. Rarely cops. Fairly safe

I'm confused......... 173 in a corner two posts before........... I hope you were kidding.

I just get kind of pissed on the subject because we all write RIP's monthly on people getting killed, bitch about BS laws, but then in the other breath go out and do 150+. If I'm out doing 150 out by myself and get killed........ Don't feel sorry for me. It is my fault!!!!!!!!!!! If I decide to be stupid and do 150 in traffic or around others (houses, farms, cars, anything......) and kill myself plus hurt others (no matter if I was cut off, pulled in front of, whatever that I could not control)......... Slap my dead body for hurting others and not using my head around others. I read all this bullshit on speed, running from the cops, laws, high insurance, and then have to read the speeding threads. I don't run from the law. Never really ever had a problem with the law, but I open the bike up where the only thing to get hit by is the pavement if I go down or a flying bird.

145 MPH is my high speed, and I was all alone in the middle of nowhere on a scouted road, so I knew of the hazzards.......


End of rant............. Flame away cop flee-ers! I hope not to be writing RIP to anyone else, but it will happen...........

Re: Top Speed? 04 Gsxr 600?

haha yes i have hauled on a few sweepers. i generallly stay in the speed limits everwhere I go. when we get to twisties i don't ever look at my speedo, i go where i feel comfortable. so YES its faster than the posted speed limit. And on an open road that I know and can see a long ways on, i have topped her out racing a buddy. I have never ran from cops either. But yes I've done stupid things like speed excessivly at different times, not all the time though. I believe most riding should be saved for the track, getting there isn't always as easy as going down the road to the twisties, and that is why people open her up so much on the streets.

Have I done a 160mph + sweeper. Yes. Did I feel satisfied? Only that I lived. My friend and I ( who are generally in a group of people who always in the front of twisties) have agreed to slow down because of how rediculous it is.

Save it for the track.
