Did 113 actual, but I honestly didn't like it. 100 feels comfortable for me. She got to 113 quite easily and quickly, but those last 13 got a little squirrelly for me. 85 for me on these curvy mountain roads is very enjoyable and exciting, so 105 is about my consistent upper limit.
I'm all about excitement and adrenalin, but not when it's produced by pressing the limits of the capabilities of the bike. That's why I'm doing suspension mods now. 140 on a sports bike, for me, is exciting, but doesn't feel like I'm cheating death. It's comfortable, stable, and confidence-inspiring. The fun factor drops for me on my Bonnie when I press it.
