I've read that the stock speedometer can be off by up to 10%. If you can, get a GPS device and let us know how fast you're really going.

Speedo not too accurate. Grab your (or borrow a) GPS. Reset the memory and go for a ride. Most GPS units have a max speed memory showing you what your top speed was.

Riding it like I financed it.

I've never seen more than 105 shallow downhill out of mine, but that wasn't really trying, and with no tuck. I'm 6'3" and make a nice sail.

It's not a bike I'd ever worry about top speed on. Mine will pull to 90 okay but it's treacle after that.

Top speed for 300?

I've seen 200km/hr (124mph) at the racetrack on the speed trap. Highest I've reached is 178km/hr (110mph) on GPS because the straight isn't long enough at my local track

How does driving 2 hours a day relevant to gaining riding skills on a bike?

I've seen 118MPH on the speedo one time on a long downhill stretch. (On a closed road in Mexico of course) I weigh 130lbs with all of my gear on, I was in a full tuck and it was nice and cool out. However, I've had it reach 107 MPH before completely running out of steam too, so I think it's circumstantial. Need perfect conditions to see the magic 118. Even at that, it's likely closer to 106 MPH actual speed when it's indicating 118 MPH.

vulgr didn't you also claim 123 gps for R3 on the R3 forum. How are people exceeding what the bikes are even geared for.
