120

I tapped 120 once, but it did take a lot of distance to wind out. Past 105-110, takes a while. My speedometer is stock. Some say stock speedometers are approx. 10% fast.

Last summer in northern Michigan (early morning - no traffic) my speedometer read just under 120. I really didn't feel too bad until I started thinking that I am going 2 miles in 1 minute. I eased off the throttle a bit. But it was a rush!!

Don't Laugh

75 and no desire to break it, yet. I got a cruiser to cruise, and I'm enjoying every minute. If I went faster, it means it took me less time to get there.

Get it up there every now and then but I've seen my share of motorcycle fatalities and choose not to be one. Tire blow out, little creatures running out in front of you, or a blue hair cutting into your lane, not for me. No offense gram and gramps. Take it for granted, all VTX's can easily go well over 100mph. Live to ride.

I don't know how fast Tejas has had the bike but I can always tell when he hits 80, my helmet vibrates on my head! :shock: Never fails!

110 before I backed off, not because I was scared but because I remembered why I bought a cruiser instead of another Hayabusa..

I like to cruise ... 75 is just about right for cruising down most highways :D

Hit 124 (indicated on the speedo) once on my 1300C on a long and lightly travelled bridge. Actual speed was probably more like 113-115 MPH, based on the well-documented speedo inaccuracy. The bike pulled pretty hard to about 115 indicated. The last 9MPH to 124 went by very slow, could tell the machine was not happy. The buffeting and noise was hellatious, never felt like doing it again. Which is probably a good thing...

I think I had the needle buried but I'm not sure because I had my eyes closed and my ass was eating the seat. :pepper1:

I hit 85 once but only because a semi was coming up on me fast and I wanted to decrease the closure rate, the dude was probably going 95 or 100...besides my bikes a red one and it looks like it's going 70 or 80 before you put the key in the ignition... :wink:
