Are we talking Suzuki speed of Garmin speed? Because there's a bid difference Sad

Well over 200 2up passing 2 double roadtrains, I stopped glancing at the speedo about the 200 mark.
I also got to 180 riding solo with the panniers on, they acted like wings and the back of the bike got very light until I backed off, scared the crap out of me Embarassed

Years ago I managed to wring everything I could get out of my VX800, 205

I would sometimes see a bit more than I should have (210ish) on the trip home from work
Across the bridge at about 100, nice sweeping right hand bend, then gun it down the 4-5km straight. As the next bridge starts getting closer and closer I would be slowing so I could do normal speeds across it before slowing/stopping for the gatehouse

Made the usual 10min ride into about a 3min ride, all on a very restricted access road mind you.

If the wind was up all bets were off and I stuck to the speed signs as sidewinds of a constant 40 knots scared the shit outa me some days

I think my 10min:3min is like my stories of the fish I catch, but it certainly felt a whole lot quicker and far more worthwhile that pootling along

I've seen 240 - 250 down the main straight at Eastern Creek this was with a 45T rear sprocket but corrected via speedo healer...hard to be accurate because you don't get a lot of time to look and they have been pretty strict about lap timing (understand this nay be changing with change of Ride Day operator...which has already happened).

221 was 245? - Geez that disapoints me THAT the speedo is out that much on the Bandits.
I crank it when ever I get the chance and by the speedo have hit the 258 mark, Almost clocked it but not quite. I love my Bandit. bounce
PS: It seems to be giving me better milage as it gets older, I just got a bit better than 19 klm per litre out of it. Very HAPPY. Very Happy Very Happy

did about 4 or 5 runs
best was 11.52 secs @ 195kph (121 mph)
there's a fair bit more in it if I can launch it harder
