Just wanted to point out:

If Moke had done this on his Gixxer, you's be all over him.

Yes, but Kirk is a highly trained and experienced motorcycle insurance agent. See the difference now?

Just like anything else, where and when you speed is more important than how fast you are going. Picking your spots is the key to survival.

Totally different situation. a GSXR can break 100 in second gear, for a Harley touring bike it's a little more difficult and I was tickled to be able to do it. This was early morning on a long straight stretch of freeway with no traffic.

I was referring more to the loud pipes, but the speed thing applies, too.

That's OK. Some of my bikes are loud and I do it all the time.

On my Shovelhead the feeling was more like vibrating your fillings out, but your point is well taken. My old W2-650 got up to 110 once and the experience was much like being strapped to a Wright Radial.
