I've gotten mine up to 145. Still working for the buck fifty mark. I know there are some out there that have burried their needle. Question are these people brave enough to let us know who they are.

Well one day at the track, I hit 138 for a brief moment. I'm not brave enough to bury the needle just yet. I'd like to get a few more miles on my bike first.

148 (shown on GPS).......................on a closed course, or maybe it was a lonely Texas road on the way to trade my 109 in. :evil:

That's pretty impressive to me for a "cruiser". I've backed mine off at about 125mph a couple of times. Guess that's fast enough for me. So I'll take you guys word on the actual topend of these bikes.

Also I'm glad your stating GPS speed not the 7% inaccurate Suzuki Speedo number.

At 100, (spedo), my size 12&1/2 boots are trying to come off the pegs!!
I am still breaking that black beast in, 1200 miles so far, and when I figure out how to keep from having my feet blow off the pegs, I'll let her rip!!:bow::bow:

do you wear boots with a heal or flat bottoms,
i wear a 14 DDD and have no problem with my feet coming off at any speed other than when i drag a heel a little too deep in a corner....lol

Well i got mine to 135 and almost messed myself when the handlebars started wobbling:redfaced:. But I will say It had more to give so I would assume it could hit 150. Also when i did that, my needle started acting a fool and bounced around a bit so now my speedometer is off by about 7mph. Good luck to those that wanna try it.

140 on the spedo after oil change to mobile one and cleaning the K & N's. Doesn't always get up there but I can count on 120 just about any day.

I hit 120* the first day on the ride home, and I've had it as high as 130* one time. That's fast enough for me. Oh and as far as my feet coming off the pegs, I hook my feet under the brake and shifter levers so I don't do the splits and fly off the back!!
