On my E I cruise at 70-75mph. I have seen 82mph IIRC. These are GPS speeds.

TOP SPEEDS:
87 street (level)
72 gravel (level)

3x1 Airbox mod
Kenda K270 (5.10) rear
otherwise stock

I don't consider my bike a "cruiser",
so I don't cruise at any particular speed.

Highway and deserted back roads, 75~80
Max speed was 100 and still climbing. Truck wind blast made going faster a litle unsettling.

These are INDICATED speeds via the precision speed device provided as standard equipment on my 06 SM.

Further worth mentioning mods as that affects it greatly.
FCR with K&N
E Cams
E Headpipe
16/41 gearing
Bike lowered 2.5 inches

1. Motorways and dual carrageways cruise around 75
In the back lanes i really get below 85 (thats were the fun is)

2. 106 fairly stock, since the cams and big bore only hit 104 but il be taking it to the same stretch of road soon so il see if its got any faster but it depends on the wind if theres a slight breeze sometimes can only reach 90 odd

I cruise at 70-80 mph
Top speed 99 mph

Both are GPS. Next decent oportunity it should run 100+ the top speed was prior to the hot cams. Although the GPS did indicate a top speed of 260 mph in the statistics, but I think that might be inaccurate.

Average cruising speed: indicated 70 (actual 65 @ about 5,500 rpm)

Top speed: indicated 96 (actual 89 @ about 8,000 rpm)

This is on a SM with a completely stock engine carb and airbox, stock tires, modified exhaust, and 16/38 road gearing.
