OK gang, How many of you have been @ or over a true 200mph. Not top end best, @200mph or over. That is GPS or radar or yellow box. I am not there yet, close but know cigar.
Soooooooooooooon for me this month in a 9/10 run.

Indicated 175 for me. A question though...I've been up to the indicated 170's a handfull of times. The bike seemed planted up to the 160's (indicated) or so. When I broke the 170 mark things around the bike seemed to change (its hard for me to explain, but the bike just didn't feel as planted). Maybe it was just a confidence issue, I dont know. What was it like on those 190+ runs. How did the bike feel? How did you adjust the bike for the run (tire pressure, suspension, etc)?

I've been well over 200. And not only was the ride exceptionally smooth, but the stewardess was great

207mph recorded on my girlfriends '2000'
model @ at drag-track. London

Not tried any attempts on my 2002 yet, just running it in.

There was a Drag converted Busa there that clocked 260+
but it wasn't road spec.

Kawafastski,

Well it is already morning. I don't think you will hit 200mph with that set up. Good luck.

Kawafastski,

Does not matter if it is slightly down hill at those speeds. Still counts on the meter.

Damp out here today so no real high runs. Did shift at 140mph on a cruise from 5th to 6th and the tire came up a couple inches. That is scary, next time a little smother shifting would be nice
