Sometimes I just want to feel it, so I punch it, run through the gears and let off. It's over in less than a minute or so. It isn't like were maintaing these speeds.
I do the same thing, usually last about 30 seconds or so in the right area.

I'd rather do corner too but I have to travel about 45 minutes to get to them so once in a while a quick addrenaline rush is fun.

My 2012 stock ECU has 6% added to my true speed. When I flashed it, I took that 6% out. It reads the true (or as accurate as it is able to) speed I'm doing now. I've had the bike up to 270-280kph numerous times, it gets up there easily. Anyway, I decided I wanted to make it to 299, and knew the 'track' I was going to use which was long and smooth enough.

Can I say, the difference between 280 and 290 is huge. My old man is an engineer, the maths is that with each kilometre you add the resistance goes up as a square of the speed. It's basically a parabolic curve of increasing force as you increase in speed. As I kept accelerating past 299 indicated, honestly, I was legitimately both scared and amazed. The wind resistance increase is hard to understand, how can just 20-30kph make such a massive difference? By the end the bike, the front end was shuddering, starting to vibrate like mad, and I didn't want to be there anymore. Slowing down to 270 felt like coming out of a hurricane back to pleasantville. I cruised down the rest of the straight at 270 and it felt slow-ish, and easy going.

Good judgement comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgement.

Just went 184 mph this morning on my ride in to work. I have a 3 mile stretch of freeway that turns into a normal road at the end of it. Normally there are too many cars on it, even at 5:30 in the morning. Today a different story didn't see one car so I let her breath. What a rush of adrenaline!

Honestly, my addiction is the acceleration not the speed, but they both go hand and hand really.

Totally agree. Its the acceleration I love . The pull tucking in etc.. The speed honestly is irrelevant to me.

I had my 05R1 up to 170 (GPS).
Got my 2014 Camaro (V-6) (manual Transmission) up to 159mph after getting the ECU tuned. Previously I was flogging it to hit 139.

199 indicated on a 03. Im positive that was off by a lot. Was wide open for about 5 miles, mostly down hill on a empty freeway. Was probably like 180 in reality. Haven't tested the 18, but haven't piped and flashed yet so whats the point.
