I am planning on doing a top speed video soon if I can convince the police to let me. You would be surprised how cool and reasonable cops are if you are polite and reasonable first

I had two Sheriffs shut down a road once for me to top out my 600RR! 162mph on radar

I may have stretched the truth a bit when I told them I am a motorcycle journalist/video logger reviewing the bike.

Hahaha... I will have to try to use that one and see just how far past a light chuckle from the officer it gets me. :-P Southern California cops are hard @$$es...

Small town cops play by their own rules. I don't think I will be able to pull this off in Tampa.

Exactly what Mike said. I live in Chicago and I will get a resounding no from any cop if I were to ask them this question.

But then again, it's worth a shot? :P

I got 112mph on I-10 coming out of florida. Took a long time to get there though

Not like the 197 I pulled on my Hayabusa. But that's a good thing

I'm 5'10", 237Lbs. I got it to 83MPH today @ 7.5K RPM. Had plenty more to go it seemed to me. I always think I have another gear though. 6th gear on these bikes is very tall.

Not too long. But I have also found 112 mph to be the barrier.
