I'm guessing Sweden has roads where you can all out. Here in the States, we don't... not legally anyway. Occasionally, I've done triple digits on stretches of interstate hwy, where the clearing on either side were wide enough so no forest rats would surprise me. Realistically though, top speed requires the skills of any Joe Schmoe with a right wrist. Kinda pointless, unless I truly am in a hurry to be somewhere. Otherwise, twisties are more fun.

Anyhow, I've ridden a friends older XX 'Bird. Carburetted version. Very smooth engine. Ergos suits me better and doesn't stretch me out like ZX14R and Busa. Since the last yr of production is 2006, any of them are a bit long in the tooth. I would seriously consider it if Honda updates it into a purpose-built sport touring bike. Chances of that happening though is slim to none.
