I believe our speedos (and most bikes for that matter) read about 10% high, so your indicated 120 could really only be 108 or so. Now if you GPS'd that speed, or trapped that fast in a 1/4, that'd be different.
I gone 120 on my Meanie several times, and my friend on his 06' CBR 1000 passes me like I'm going backwards.
I think that they show higher speeds to actually keep speeds down. Most bikes I have checked are off from 5 - 10%, yet, odometers are right on.
