Those guys are amazing! I think perhaps the question should be "how fast are you capable of going and remain in control"?

Modifications so far:
Axxiom valve kit, Traxxion spring kit
CBR600RR shock, Tail Tidy, Triumph bar end mirrors
FP Racing levers, -1 front sprocket, Gel seat insert.

Well, capable is a bit subjective, easy to overestimate Maybe daring would be a better way to put it?

Here's another from Asia, Macau:

MY2011 S3 - Evotech-Performance, Top Block Racing, GSG, Arrows, Triumph, Tune-Ecu, TechSpec, Valter Moto.

Well, I certainly know and freely admit that I'm not capable, i.e. I do not have the skills, of riding like that.

Modifications so far:
Axxiom valve kit, Traxxion spring kit
CBR600RR shock, Tail Tidy, Triumph bar end mirrors
FP Racing levers, -1 front sprocket, Gel seat insert.
