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.
