The bike will never hit 200mph on the Flats. Air's too thin for the fuel injection system they use. The computer could never compensate. I say take the thing south or east towards Texas and you may get 203 but not more. Also, the rear hub on those things tend to fail. So, whoever pilots the thing must have b@lls of steel and brains of the scarecrow to attempt a sustained run of more than 2 miles. I'd be scared sh!tless.

You are right there Ace, under normal conditions. But then, think outside of the box for a minute. If Obama would ride it, it certainly would pass 200mph.

I thought a buck eighty seven was pretty stout. Definitely sounded sweet!
