    I cruised the Autobahn at 110 MPH (normal speed) and at 130 when I was in a hurry back in the day. The gas goes quick at those speeds, around one hour and it’s gone. Now I feel no need for speed, it’s the journey not the destination for me now. :2thumbs:

    ive only been a member for 6 mos. just bought the 04 ridgeback in november, by time it shipped up from fla.
    i put it in the garage for the winter,i have little riding experience so when i introduced myself i took the advice of the seasoned veterans and im taking a motorcycle course 2nd week of april and restored my drivers privelages during the winter im 52 years old so i try to learn all i can, im glad i checked this thread out though, i cant imagine riding at120mph ill be happy at 75-85 when conditions allow it i live on long island roads are terrible and the kids on 4 wheels arent concerned about anyone on the road but themselves so ill take it slow, and be proud to ride slow
    for now

    Ha ha, Purpledog and I took off and we were over 110 when our exit came up. I pulled over and he didn't and I think I was over 125 trying to catch him.

    What amazed me is when we did pulled off at the next exit JR03, BBC, Finn and Abaco21 were right behind us! :eek:


    Oh, and these bike will cruise at 95 to a 100 mph all day long! I've done it out on the open freeways:

    Had my 05 Masstiff to 120 a few times. Gets hard to hang on. It is very smooth at that speed though. It is smoothest on the interstate in 6th at 90. Smooth as glass.

    On a few occasions, I've quickly pulled to 130+ mph on my Bulldog (107in s&s). With the 19" front wheel and the inverted forks, believe me - it was stable. The wind is incredible, so it's face down and knuckles back!

    Cool video! I broke 100 a couple times on the highway, getting on it. Just hitting a couple gears gets you there real fast but then I drop it right down and enjoy the ride and all the onlookers giving the high sign. Can't see them going fast! Life's too short...

    A dyno sheet is a myth. No wind force to deal with which increases by a factor of 9 per 10 mph. The road conditions cannot come into play. Lastly the riders` weight isn`t affecting the outcome therefore rendering the dyno speed a useless figure. It reminds me of revving a motor out of gear and saying what amount of horsepower there is in that engine. Bullshit! P.S. According to my calculations a K-9 with good tires should top-out at approximately 138mph. That is if one can overcome the wind-resistance.

    Passed my brothers friend on his rice rocket with my 05 Ridgeback. He let off at 158. I pulled away from him before he did. Im sure I hit 160+. That was all the bark the dog had!

    120 mph is all i have taken my K9 to. Very hard to keep feet on the pegs at that speed, also the roads in Australia don't lend themselves to going fast, not like the US, hell you roads are smooth. Just love riding there. Next year Sturgis ............... again.

    I've had my 07 Mastiff up to 156.9 on open road without hitting the rev limiter. The BMW 3 series I was chasing hit the NoS and walked away from me so I quit. Dakota Digital speedo if you were wondering.

    I hit a June bug, or something about that big, right beside my adams apple, at a 110. Damn near knocked me off the bike. Left a nasty bruise, and it was hard to swallow for a long time.

    140 plus when I first got the Mastiff. After that I was hooked and didn't even want to be near my ultra
