How is the stability of this machine at high high speeds? anyone run it over 150mph? impressions?
True Steve, but the way I look at it, our wheels and cranks are gyroscopes, so the faster they spin the moe stable we are - especially passing trucksOn 2007-01-10 00:54, steventhechef wrote:
Buffeting when passing trucks can be a little unsettling but they are remarkable stable at speed.
I don't advocate speeding either, but I was smiling a lot, once I got back down from the top end. It was indicating 168.4. I didn't take a picture of it there before I disconnected my battery to install the harness for a battery tender, but I do have a pic of it from the previous run which saw 166.6.On 2007-01-10 17:30, steventhechef wrote:
Russ , I had a similar bump in the road at 180 kph and it lifted the front wheel up.
Scared the Bejusus out of me !!
Mikey, mine is still OEM geared.
From what I know it the 18T helps with low end on these bikes and would/may lessen top end to a small degree.
Sprint1050DA, What was the indicated speed at redline? How much were you smiling? :-D
Again, not that I advocate speeding..
48 y.o. going on 19 !! :-D
