Default Re: What is Your favorite speed?

When the roads are fine, I'm one of the guys who drive their bike with WOT.

Since 2008 my 30cc rear wheel hub engine in my Hercules Saxonette is licensed as a moped to 45 km/h. It is the only one in Germany and it was a hard (and expensive) procedure to get the license. Other bicycles of this type are limited from factory not to run faster than 20km/h (12,5 mph).
So I enjoy every minute going up to 48 km/h (30 mph) at 7100 rpm which is its actual top speed without wind and in in the plain. The other car drivers and moped riders can't believe it. And I have fun to see their astonished faces.
