Default Re: Top Speed, 80cc Chinese motor? what is the record?

to elaborate, there's no chinese 80cc motor. it's a 66cc.

officially, there's no land speed record. there's a few videos somewhere of people going fast, but most of it's kinda sketchy.

i've seen bikes radared at the track with the top speed in the straight around 43mph, but those bikes are usually geared lower for better speed out of corners.

mbr and the aleman witnessed me at 54mph with a gps, and i think neil hit 45 on my bike that same day. i'm lighter, and was drafting traffic.

i unofficially hit 62 on the same bike drafting a truck using my phone gps, and then it blew up.

i've seen many riders hitting mid 40's in the street.

one of these days i'd like to issue a speed challenge, using the same gps phone aps, video cameras and witnesses, but haven't got around to it yet.
