New top speed hit yesterday.....

Past 150 leaving a gixer 1000 behind, getting close to seeing how accurate their claims are of top speed, Gawd it pulls hard, wheel in the air through 3rd, just isn't right. Maybe cutting 20lbs off the bike made it capable of flight? The BSTs spin up so fast I almost can't shift quick enough. (quick shifter project in the future) I moved the rearsets and shift lever all for a more aggressive position and I like it better, so glad we had the most mild winter here ever. Fine tune to come, then we'll go out by the airport at 1am on the mile long access roads, good lighting, new pavement, and see what's up.

Hope you guys are kicking the dust off and getting some weather to ride.

Starts to be a bit much wind to hang on when you approach 150....even tucked down. The Brutale was never about top-end speed, but she'll pull towards red line in 6th. I backed off before I got there, very close to 150.

My 910R is geared for 154mph in 6th at stock red line of 11,300. The kit ECU red line is a bit higher.

Let us know if you can keep from getting blown off the back....

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

More a thick neck! Amazing what force you get on the helmet. I know mine when I tried my modifications. 2 8 8 km/h on my Brut's clock and it's pretty accurate according dyno tests

Biondi windscreen, tucked down, snug leathers, helmet visor was pressed against my nose, but wasn't bad.

Just think how that 150 mph will feel if something/someone on a public street steps/pulls/falls in front of you. Not that I'm a speed-limit all the time guy...far from it; but, I do believe those speeds should be experienced on the track in a controlled environment.

( Rant over...you may resume your blatently irresponsible behavior)
