What were you new top speeds you hit??? Always a good thing to hear about improving your riding skillz. :)
Well it's no 158 like some around here, but the speedo read 125 and from what I've read about the FZ's, that's is probably about 115 actual. Wow, what an adreniline rush :dthumb:

Well, I only hit 158 twice. Once last week and the first time I went 163. LOL But I am far from the fastest. Mr. 189mph vs a busa. Nice twisty. 115 is still moving and lots of fun. That adreniline rush is whats it all about. And coming back in one peice. :dthumb:

The 163 was actual. I had it calibrated a week or so before hand. The 158 has to be really close. I have checked it with Matt to see how close my speed is with his and other cars that want to play around on the highway and I look in to see the odometer and it was a few miles off and nothing major. So mine are pretty close. :dthumb:

The corners were much more adrenaline rush today then the top speed. slowed down from the 125 then hit hwy 5 out west of town and took about 10 miles of great twisties. Man this bike beats the hell out of my cruiser for fun factor. :smash:

Sure don't, I'll grab the camera next time I hit them cause it is a pretty good road. Comes into the south side of the Leavenworth/Lansing area so at the end of the ride you come by these huge prisons with inmates in the yard basically divided by like to huge barbwire fences.

The other good road is the industrial park near my house. It is made up with a bunch of big traffic circles and these tight curvy connections. Then one long empty straight connecting the back to the front that you can just open it up on.

The two best areas I have ridden in the KC area

Not that much of a big diff. Does it get worse the faster you go or stay arounf the same as all speeds???

This is what I found, seems pretty accurate with what I've been seeing too.

Indicated
Actual
% Error

50.0 45.6 9.7
60.0 55.1 9.0
70.0 63.8 9.7
80.0 72.8 9.9
90.0 82.4 9.2
100.0 90.8 10.1
110.0 100.4 9.6
120.0 109.2 9.9
130.0 118.5 9.7

IF ya can understand that, it didn't paste very well.

So when your doing 130mph your really doing 118. Bummer. Take it up to 150 and see what the GPS shows you. Atleast it is staying at a 9.5-9.7 error.

Yeah, I think I am gonna need something to keep track of my speed, considering I am planning some sprocket changes which will make it even further off..

I changed my rear sprocket and would love to see how much it's off at about 170 or so... I'll put it on my list of things to do, but it probably won't get down anytime soon...
