Forget about all the talk about our bikes and how fast they are. Their are three things that guys like to lie about: 1)What mileage that their RV gets 2)how big their ummmm hard drive is? and... 3) their internet speed. Below is a link that should tell us exactly how fast were all runnin!!
I'll go first.

Im runnin 4.499mbps, I've got the cable modem. Who's got me beat??

two weeks ago this was sooo slow. i didn't think i was ever going to get a screen up. it got so bad that it wouldn't even work. i'm with freeserve here in the UK and my mate gave me a new phone number he'd heard of with them.

everything has been flying for this last few days. brilliant. the best i can remember it being.

can't stand this black background though. reminds me of a porn sight. i've got visions of being trapped on the site flicking from one hardcore photo of a YZ to another!

heaven forbid!!!

what's with this speed thing mine don't even register on the speedometer...I went out of the cave today to best buy and they said I could upgrade my modem from my 14.4 to a 56k which is unbelivable fast.I think I need to upgrade...

FOR SALE-----good 14.4 modem it has a phone cable attached so that makes it a cable modem. todays low cost of $75.00, Pretty cheap for a cable modem. :)

I'm only 3.551 mbps. It was faster before @home went belly up and they shifted me over to AT&T. It does seem to be getting better though. Still, better than Aftershock!!!!! Hehehe :)

150KB file took 44.323 seconds using a 56Kbps modem - my throughput was 27.04 Kbps... considering it had to travel all the way 'downunder' and back again... wonder how many extra routers it had to go through?

I'll swap some warm summer riding weather for some bandwidth... any takers?

I was rockin.....then I hit this rutted section and went over the keyboard. I wasn't hurt too bad, just bruised a little. Got some plastic to replace on the monitor. This speed contest stuff is not for beginners!

I'm at 1.5 Mbps - AT&T limits the download speed now.....sucks!

I'm using an old 233 on cable modem. I was looking at a new computer but, it looks like this old pile, still get's it on.

Maybe I could use the money for carbon fiber or titanium :)

I might have you guys beat for the slowest connection :D

File size - 150.005 KB
Time - 57.45 seconds
Speed - 20.88 Kbps

Gray wire connected, airbox lid on, stock exhaust, wrong jetting, etc.

Obviously my KB mod isn't working.

10 miles north of Eugene, OR. No options available except Starband 2 way satellite with its $750 buy-in. Oh well, at least I can spend the $ I'm saving on my bike. :)

Well, my connection is 50.666K, but I can download jetting Q's in about 40seconds. I recall Yamakaze saying it takes him minutes!

But, I have removed my computer's gray wire and rejetted it properly for altitude and put an even bigger cooling fan in it (which required removing the airbox lid). :)
