110 on the speedo. I know, I'm a wienee. Wide-open view on a two-lane country state highway, about 6am on a weekend.

Would love to see what I can do with it on the track, but work's been slow, and thus the Tupperware fund is a bit lacking. I'll have to hold off until next year. Probably smarter to do that stuff after I have the pink slip anyway. Plus, my boss signed me up to work one of the days I was planning to go, so I better work it (IF we actually have any students..). Finally, I got told no, gotta wait on a Bug convertible (even though I had found a yellow one; his favorite color is yellow...), so I better do my part to get the bike paid off ASAP to give me more leverage after some other debts are retired in the next few months. And maybe I'll find a GREEN one!

2017 NINJA 300(0) ABS KRT ("Sheldon")
2015 green N1K (Is there any other color?? Much-loved and missed...)
2013 VW Beetle TDI 6spd convertible ("Bug")


Someday I hope to be the rider that my bike deserves.

Was that an indicated speedo number?

On a stock 11-13 , you will hit something like a speed limiter up near that 153 area. It's not a real speed limiter. It's more a calculation of gear and rpm position, so a gearing change might alter this number some.

Indicated 110 on my 2014. The bike gets exercised to 100 on occasion. I'm old enough to not need to know how fast it will go. Been there, done that, in my younger days.
