Found this on another site and here are the results. I know we have a thread or 2 already about this but why bring them back up so I started a new one. :D

141-180 mph 48.4% 1940
101-140 mph 21% 842
200+ mph 18.6% 743

I've had the Bee up to 130 on its digital speedo, but I don't know what the +/- error is, and I don't really care to fly the Bee that fast again

OK OK!!! Right off the bat, let's just throw the speedo error out the window!! They are all off, so let's not even start down that road!! Unless, you're geared WAY the F out, then that's different!

I've had my 9R up to about 190....

Cool...ppl are giving me speeds and I was just posting a poll I found about the speeds most riders stay in. :D But thanks everyone. i have seen the 160's. Someday soon i will see 170 then 180 and maybe I can join the 190 club. Befire I am 30(which is next sept.), I am going to join the 200mph club. And like Gas Man said, I am going to just throw the speedo error out the window. What ever it says(and its not much off) is what I did. :dthumb:

I just hate when people say....well the speedo error...blah blah blah!!

They are all off, let's not speculate as to what amount!! Just take it at face value and go from there...my 190 is just like your 190...even if it's only 180...ya know??

I agree...but your 190 is not like my 190 since I haven't seen it yet. :lol: But I will. Thanks to you. :D

200+ mph 18.6%

doesnt 18.6% seem a bit high for percentage of riders whos bikes will even do 200..... granted a lot of bikes can be modified ot do it, but not a ton of em and of them how many get that far and go to 200? seems like it should be well under 18%

well.. u've got all the zx10's, zx9's..gixxer 1000's, R1's, 1000RR, Ducs, etc... this class of bike is very very popular these days with alot of riders..so when u look it at that way..it may even seem a bit low.. ;)

This is the truth! I'm telling you it is everyday that I will ride up to 150... Heck I don't even grab the other grip until I get over 130 or so... just ask those PA guys I'm not lieing. The speed becomes so much a part of a normal day...

No kidding on that one. When riding I thought you were crazy for not holding on with 2 hands at 130mph. LOL I know I was holding on with both of them. :D

I guess I have just become complacent with the speed...

I have become very comfortable with 140+ now but I still keep 2 hands on. But everyone is going to do their own thing. :dthumb:
