290 KPH indicated which according to my Garmin GPS 195 was 270 KPH (170 MPH). I will need to do again to confirm, as was too busy watching for traffic. GPS confirms that the speedo is about 7% optomistic all the way up. I haven't checked the odometer yet, but I suspect that it suffers from the same fate.

I am 6' 2" and about 200 lbs. and could not get my helmet (and fat *** ) fully behind the windscreen. I too ran out of road, but was surprised at what felt like the bike running out of steam above about 250-260 KPH indicated (160 MPH).

I would appreciate comments on the last 30 MPH from 160 to 190 as far as tuck and time that it took to get there.

Got my 99 copper to 325km/h so that's around 195. I imagine it could of gone close to 340 but had to let go due to coming traffic.

Been playing speed demon on stepdad's jetski and playing boatmotorhead on stepdad's work boat Mercury 115, rebuilt the fuel pump yest. still not right, gonna sync carbs and check timing this weekend.

172 mph indicated - - - had to wait for my organs. I was practicing which positions offer the most aerodynamics...

Comments are welcome.
