Vertical speed doesn't count.

I generally don't really like highway riding. Especially in heavy traffic. Never had a bike over 80 mph. And don't plan to. Stay safe all you speed demons!! 😉😁

Yup, I couldn't hold 80MPH traffic in Florida on the C50. It probably did an honest but very scary 85MPH. I seriously doubt my C50 could make it to 90MPH. On a hot day with no wind, it struggled at Florida Interstate speeds. It was fine up to 65MPH, after that it got a bit scary.

I somehow managed to touch 100 (indicated) on my C50. It was really 88mph and it was wound completely out.
