Highest paved road in North America

Donít know if anyone cares or has the opportunity, but a 2010 MV F4 will run at 14000ft.
After a drink of water and good photo opportunity, the bike was a bit slow to start back up at that altitude and had less power than a 600cc up there, but in all still a good time.
Not that you really want to go very fast with hairpins every 100 yards with over 1000 foot drops.

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.

Living in Denver you never get much below 5000 feet, and vary curious on how the bike feels at sea level. Honestly I think the bike would scare me at sea level, from what I’ve read you louse 15% to 20% of your power in Denver do to altitude.

I went to 5300ft in Deals Gap area...750 ran great. Not that we were pushing hard or anything so I wouldn't have noticed a small change in performance.
