Let's see some top speed numbers, I'm only good for 110mph. On a closeded course under close super vision of course.
Let s see some top speed numbers I m only good for 110mph On a closeded course...
125mph(202km/h) in German highway :)
160km/h on gravel. 200 something on tarmac/asphalt
I'm with Nathan Roberts. It's probably best to state the type of tire along with the speed. For me, it's 85 mph with a Karoo 3 on the front and a Heidenau K60 on the rear. Anything over 80 just doesn't feel comfortable with those tires.
about 150kmh on gravel and ~200kmh on the Autobahn. The desierto is like a door you carry in front of you. I also did 260kmh.. but that was on an S1000RR :P
About 180 km/h so far with pillion
I saw this post and I resisted saying anything for a few days..... but I can;t help myself. If you are riding a BMW F800GS on roads and talking about riding faster than 55 mph, or faster than 90 KPH.... you are on the wrong roads.
205km/h. Nothing wrong with this road.
An unloaded bike. Let's see you riding 205 kph with 80 kg's of gear and gasoline on the Road of Bones..... and remember this was only me - all by myself - no one around for hundreds and hundreds of kilometers.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6Jm40z8orI/
The post was about top speed on your Gs. Not about how much load you were carrying at the time.
Checked your video now... It's all about perception. 80% of our gravel roads look like that and even worse. Did 3500km last year on roads a lot more challenging than that. WITH a loaded bike. Thank you.
