How fast have you guys had your MV, be it on the track or street? How did it feel?

150mph indicated---smooth on the road, but very windy.
120mph 2 up, not as windy, but just as smooth; I was very impressed.
To note, these were very quick passing bursts, and not some squiddy attempt to attain top speed (well, maybe a little).

Very brave... on the track or streets?

I am too much of a chicken to try that on the street, the fastest I have ever gone is 149, on a Kawasaki 636, CCS @ Willow.

I do that everyday! seriously, because part of the drive way to our garage has a steep slope to it, and whenever I leave I have to back out carefully with the brake or it would pick up a lot os speed. when I first moved in I had to get used to doing it, now I can do it without my feet touching the ground. .

I've seen 276km/h (171mph) indicated. Was very stable with heaps of revs to go!

Saw the shift light coming on in 6th (240k ish), before the thought of smacking into stray wildlife slowed me up. Was rock steady though.
