Who has hit top speed on their bike and how often ?

I hit 168mph on mine right after i broke it in and was assuming that everyone that buys a race bike races it up to top speed ,....but i was wondering if i was right ?

So the questions are....

A) how fast how you gone on your bike ?

B) was your bike "maxed out" (highest speed obtainable)

c) how often do you hit that speed on your bike ? (i.e. - once or twice, every once in a while , all the time ? )

And just out of curiosity am i the only one who has done this with no gear ? Just curious as in "yes" or "no" not as in a world war 3 argument about gear or how stupid i am.

Thankyou

thug are you in stillwater ok now? How long have u been there and when are you leaving?
i moved up here (TO STILLWATER) approx. 4 yrs ago from omaha and got clean and sober.

Unfortunately i started relapsing about a year ago.

Last jan. I went to omaha for rehab and have been there for the last 5 mths. I am in a 12 step rehab program there. I am currently on step 8 and have a couple/few more months to go.

However, i got kicked out for 30 days a few weeks ago because someone there claimed i punched them in the face, so i came back up here to chill in stillwater. I will be heading back to omaha in a week or two considering a bed re-opens up for me.

Why ? Whats up bro ?

Most I have ever got to is 150ish but I still had plenty left. Thats without a speedohealer so was more like 130-140 i guess. Standard front and back. I quite often go up to 100 but since I got pulled for speeding in my car, I feel a lot more careful as I could do without my insurance going up... oh and the points on my license.

Always wear gear.

I hit the redline in 5th once, glanced down and it said 159 or so. Thats without speedo healer. I was too chicken to hit 6th at that speed. Im usually never over 85. Sometimes squid with a tee shirt, jeans and boots if its above 90 out. Most times wear my jacket, jeans, and boots
