What is your max. speed ?

Just interesting what our bike can? I rod 160 km/h(100 m/h) and it don't go more. Maybe becouse I haven't windshild or old wheak engine.

At about 100mph the front end gets a little shakey for me.
The bike will get to 115 mph.

Fastest I've had mine was somewhere about 110. I didn't really want to take my eyes off of what was infront of me to see exactly.
It is a bit shakey then, especially due to the fact that the bike is designed as a Cruiser, not a racer.
I have had it to 100 more than a few times. Stupid thing to do?.... I admit, yeah, but it was a rush.

Rode mine at 105 m/h for about 5 miles on mostly level ground.
It was smooth and felt like it had a bit more but that was enough for me.
Im not a speed freak,normally ride about 10 over speed limit, but had to see what it could do.

got to 100 Mph once and the bike didn't feel stable on the road. i would not go above 70-75 if i'm riding alone or with wife, and 85 if i'm stuck riding with a fast group - not very fun at that point IMO.

be carefull on those suburb Kiev roads, or you are risking not to have where to put your new handles

I routinely cruise at 75 - 80, and pass at 85 - 90. Not much more.

I've had my speedometer at 100 MPH a couple times on the freeway for a very short time and it still had some to go. However, my GPS said I was actually going about 91.
The bike handled very well; no vibration, no control problems whatsoever. It just wanted to go in a straight line down the road.

110

the fastest ive had it is 110. the front tire just kind of skims across the road. maybe 112 but that is severly pushing it. anyone know anywhere online that has decently priced air filters or other parts instead of grotesquely overpriced?

May be mine can do some more, I wasn't try it on freeway yet, we have two of them(freeways) in our country.
And Tankist have a point - our roads are very VERY bed. On 100 mph I can't say precislly what it is 95 or 105, 'couse of vibration on the road.
