::) Can this be?I was crusin at 75 in fast lane,no one around me at all,I respect passing lane. Then out of no ware a FJR wizzed by me in my frekin lane,If I would drifted over,I would have be hit. I caught him at 130,and looked at him,I seen him down shift and go,then I just twisted the throttle and caught him again. Then I hit it up to 150 ,he never tryed to catch me.I thouht those did 150? I was just qurious to see if I could catch him,and I did with ease. 8)

My buddy has an FJR and says it topped out at a GPS 147. Now you factor in speedo error and that is around 157-160 on the dial.

Yes.... I saw the same one. No need for anymore horror movies/pics.

i went to ogerish.com; exact same kind of stuff. may be related websites. i'm not a tree hugger or nothing; but, i saw too much of that stuff too many times. have no desire to view it for enjoyment.

I've got both and I would say the guy on the FJR wasn't trying..(for whatever reason)..I love my 109 but the FJR will comfortably crush it in acceleration at high speed and the rider will have no wind loading on him..factory 145 hp /60 (odd) kg lighter and (supposed to) do a 'genuine' 156mph (without luggage).Â
I think the smart money would be on the FJR in that contest!

Who said: "He probably didn't want to get a ticket"?

-- I can just hear THAT conversation:

"Whadaya MEAN officer? I was only doing 130. I was just keepin' up with the flow of traffic!"
