Top speed you've reached?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by randy, Jan 14, 2005.

  1. Top speed you have ever reached on a bike?
    I hit 205.

  2. I have been to an "indicated" 255 klm's on the blade
    not too shabby considering I was a little pi$$ed that it wouldnt go faster only to find when i slowed down i was still in 4th gear.
  3. are you now going to tell us that was miles per hour?
  4. bwahahahahahahahahhahahahahah!!! :LOL:

    205??? i wasn't that far off that when i was on the 250! :LOL:

    sorry, that motorcycling GOD thing just went right out the window eh :LOL: you really dont have any idea do you? :wink:
  5. Not really surprised Lurk - I have had my 600 at about the same speed (although it's not easy to look at the speedo), and I can understand how gear changes could quite easily slip your mind at that speed. There's a hell of a lot of other things to worry about.
  6. Oh yeah, sorry it was in the USA.
    205 mph
    About 330 kph

  7. Got my CB250 up to 120 a few times!! Never thought the little jigger would manage it.

    Lurk, the 'Blade must've been revving its nuts off at 255?
  8. there we go :LOL: :LOL:
  9. wouldnt do it again but got my 1997 yzf-600 up to 240 km/h

    very silly boy
  10. I'm interested - what were you riding at the time?

    Shall I prompt you again and suggest that you were riding a turboed bike? Perhaps a turboed 'busa? Or perhaps you got your hands on a well tuned motoGP bike for a weekend?

    If you have done this speed how did you know, was it the bike speedo telling you or did you have an independent source co-orborrate it for you. Just courious.

    Step father of a friend of mine, just pulled 9.4 sec standing quarter on a turbo busa, with more to come.
  12. I got my '83 GPZ 250 to 130 - 135 km/h down the eastern freeway with a tailwind. Maybe going downhill I could have squeezed out another 5 - 10km/h. It was a buzz for me back then when I was on my L's. 8)
  13. However fast Paulh's Hyabusa was going when I was on the back :D

    By myself.. somewhere in the low 200's so far :)
  14. "...but Randy.....you have had all this experiance and you only ever reached 205"

    Lay off the guy - that's quite an achievement on a CT110!
  15. I managed to get my Across up to 145km so far not a bad effort considering my size and the bike. I only slowed because I ran out of room (and was in a 110 zone :roll: )
  16. It wasn't Paul as in "Cappa" Paul was it? Cause the fastest I have been on the back of a bike was on Cappas busa at 270kmph.
    Fastest on my bike is 155kmph.
  17. 103kph, down a hill with a strong tailwind. (hey, I maxed out at 75kph on the same road going the other way...) I was quite surprised to see black space between the 100kph dot and the needle!

    I know, I know... not exactly Warp 3 was it? Oh well, speed records on a bike don't matter to me. So long as I can do the speed limit with a little bit left, I'll be happy (ie: I won't be happy until I get a bigger bike...)
  18. Nope..the elusive Paulh, mostly english..big guy, damn fast and has unique all weather gear :D :roll: :D
    Must be a mad englishman at heart, cos he even let me ride the Busa..and how fun was THAT :D :D :D
