I know it's not all about the speed!

Hi All, I know you never get the book speed on your stock bike but with the TV I'm finding that there is very little pull when you're past 120mph. Any one else noticed this?

I've had mine for a little over a year and I expected It not to go much faster than that. There is the wind resistance of the bags and 110 hp on tap from an engine designed for mid range torque that I think would hinder your going much faster. That's why I have a sportbike also.

I hit the same wall on the weekend, but hey it was fun getting there. It's in its element on the twisties, 7k rpm, gobs of power and my mate on his multistrada is grimacing. Magic bike.

I did 130MPH (210km/h) once but I did not feel any pleasure. It's great bike in various environments and that's why I bought it, not to break any speed records.
However, I wonder what is the acceleration on TV (0-100km/h). Does anyone now?

it is not all about speed.. it's about technic :-))
I've done 225 km/h (140 mph) (max speed 230 km/h (143 mph) but this is not really fun...
the acceleration from 0-100km/h is 3,5 sek !!

I've done 220 km/h once and only to see how fast I could go. Normal speed for me on the highway is 140-150 km/h maybe 180 if I am in a hurry.

May sound a bit boring I know but I'm just starting out on my Advanced Motorcycling Licence course with the IAM. First time out, they tell you - keep to the speed limits, no exceptions, zero tolerance! I got a finger wagging for doing 32mph in a 30mph. As soon as we got to the single lane nationals, these old dudes with beards on their old man bikes were dots on the horizon. Gradients like ski slopes, twisty as the Alps and narrow as f**k. 40mph felt like suicide and they were doing 60mph, overtaking everything in sight! Scariest ride I've had since I had a pillion around Brands with John Reynolds.

Truly, it really IS all about technique!

Speed doesn't matter to me. I'm thinking about draining all the fluids from my bike and setting it up in the corner of the living room as a sculpture

Likewise. At least it will stop me thinking up excuses to hang around in the garage.
