You've need to get yourself a new toy every once in a while John, gives one a reason to get up and go to work each day. Great looking bike, @ 185 mph Is that the fastest road bike? I know every biker talks about a "Blade". In my day the bike with the most street cred and probably the fastest was the Triumph Bonneville, and although I had a number of Cubs, 21, T110 I never aspired to a Bonnie. So while I can still just about get my leg over one, I've finally got one, an America that we hope to use this Summer, then take it down to Spain in September, use it there over the winter and bring it back next Easter and so on. Although it will probably do 100mph, 50 - 60 is the max for my wife

Thats a nice looking cruiser jeff. I'll be on something like that one day when my bones start aching.
Most bikes now are limited now to 185MPh as they came to an agrement as the speeds were getting ridiculous. Its all about horse power now and the its mostly the sport toures like BMW S1000 R, Kawasaki ZZR1400 & GSXR1300 which are nudging the 200hp mark :smt103
180 is quick enough for me :lmao :lmao
