Wow, that's very interesting. I have often wondered, and even asked some questions awhile back, about the VN750's speed compared to other bikes. Seems to me that mine is pretty doggone fast.
I have noticed that since I have been riding it for over 6 months now, it doesn't seem to "feel" as fast as it used to (still runs just as good however - better actually, as I had a better carb ASSY put on). I think it is more a case of me getting used to it than it not being fast though. I noticed the other day that I actually started to break the tire loose when shifting into second and getting on it going into a corner the other day. I was pretty surprised!
In my experience, it seems like if I wind first out pretty good before shifting into second, I am flying. But, because 2nd is such a tall gear, if I shift into it too early at a lower RPM, it takes a second or 2 to get it back up into the power band.
All in all, I love my bike, and it is quick enough for me. I sometimes think I would like something even faster, but not sure that I would survive that! Lol.
Ride safe all - no matter how fast you go =)
