Yes, but the BIG question is for how long was that speed maintained? AND how many passangers?

147 mph for at least FIFTEEN MINUTES with FOUR passengers and a case of cold beer in the back seat. Driver wasn't allowed to drink.
Acutally, it could have been faster as I don't think the speedo was very accurate at the high end. That's a long time at that speed. I've been faster but only maintained that speed for a few seconds.

Car was:
440 six-pack, blueprinted, 500+hp Brown with Black Stripes, Plymouth Barracuda. 1969 or so. Driver's name was Norman.
Between Butte City, ID and Idaho Falls, ID back when I was in the Navy at the atomic testing station and cruise control was a brick on the gas pedal.

Norman had four witnessess. Being Navy, we still complained that we didn't have enough time to finish the case of beer before we rolled into Idaho Falls.
I think we only drank two beers that day instead of our usual four or five.

Cool, how stable was your bike?
Very stable! That bike is built for those speeds and it loves doin it. Plus it dont hurt having a SCOTTS/OHLINS steering dampner just to keep things nice and tight.

hahahahah my rice cooker is faster than your muscles. j/k

wrx speedo ends at 140. so 155-160 MPH, NOT kph. i just wanted to see if it could, but that's not safe so i told my 4 passengers to look before i slowed down.

Going by the digital speedometer in my 86 383 stroker vette, 172. I don't know how accurate it was at speed, although the gearing was stock, so it should be "close". Lol, someone mentioned talon. I calcualted it once, and it was moving pretty good, but can't remember what it worked out to- modded 91 Talon (Haltech E6K, Frank 6 turbo, built motor, etc.), had it bouncing off an 8700 rpm rev limiter in 5th- if I can find the ratios for the talon trans again, I'll recalculate it and post :).

145 in my 90 Mustang...racing an 03 vette on the 101 south with mild traffic. Needless to say I won.

Just bought my Goat this afternoon and haven't had a chance to test the high speeds yet.

BTW what is the limiter set at on the Goat?

In my GTO 125 mph... On my 2001 Suzuki Hayabusa 1300R I was clocked with a radar gun doing 197mph, this was on a privately owned runway which was just over five thousand feet in length. Getting the motorcycle from 0 to 197 mph seemed easy but stopping prior to running off the runway was difficult. As stated this was a 2001 Suzuki Hayabusa with approximate 3500 in mods, Oh and the speedo on most bike's are off big time, so to other motorcycle owner's, unless you have the yellow box at 190 on the factory speedo you are doing 160 to 170 depending upon headwinds/crosswinds and it just gets worse as you go faster...
