Just amazing, the speeds on any bike. This thing is just sick. I try to be careful, picking the time and place where there is least amount of variables, and where I can see far ahead. I go to make a pass, nail it in 2nd, top it out, click 3rd, blip it and look down-135. never ceases to amaze me. So I was coming home on the highway yesterday, came up on a niiice long straight, got it up to 162 and it was stable as hell. Like a screaming beast it just wanted to go and keep going. FUCK! just awesome.Shoei x-11 is awesome too, no high speed shakes. my girlfriend finds this bike too uncomfortable to be a pass. so im thinking about getting a busa next year. no way am i giving up this machine though.

try 186 and holding it for a minute. Then you'll consider a custome cruiser
HAHAHA...that is just fucking siiick,
all i need is a long enough straight. I saw it it break 162 and i immediatley brought it back down, there was a bridge coming up and cops are notorious for hiding behind them on 495. I look forward to the opportunity to really open'er up on a nice long piece of asphalt. and do what you did. Nothing will ever make me switch to cruiser style. busa will be my equivalent of a cruiser.

Ive run my 750 with the speedo maxed at a dead standstill of 186mph for over 10 miles. Granted was likely low 170's.......but none the less, i had her wide open for quite a long haul just recently.

i believe this thread is about how the k5 1000 runs in that speed without any drama and how smooth this engine is without even trying hard. i don't think its about who or what bike goes in that spe
ed to gain recognition.

186 club memeber as well that thing is solid but the limiter sucks it will hit 186 then back down a few mph over an over again so im debating on putting my tre on it to see what it will top out at, once i put it own i will mount the video cam,
