Ditto, AND my bike is a "60/80" cc, AND I'm 50lbs lighter, AND I agree with Joe. The numbers do not compute. Estimates are worthless, spend $10-$15 on a speedometer.
Technically you need one to be legal. Try booking through a school zone at 25, past a cop, on a pedal bike. You'll get a ticket. Promise you, EVERYTHING must obey the speed LIMIT. Get a speedo, $15 to save you a $100+++ ticket.
Gods forbid a traffic incident involving a pedestrian and a motorbike, let alone a speeding one. Bad publicity for all of us. DO NOT SCREW WITH THE MOTORBIKE MOJO!
