I got 127 out of mine on nitrous with full boost
There is so much wrong with that first sentence...I don't know where to start. :shock:I'm soiling my panties just reading these posts. I think I did 60 once but I had to exhale eventually.
Did 70 on my Triumph a few times...that was more comfortable.
:scoot: 127 kilometers?I got 127 out of mine on nitrous with full boost
I actually had to let off the throttle because the front end of my bike was getting awfully light. Turns out the shark wants to fly after about a buck ten.A few summers ago, Ron and I were riding to Washington DC along I66 between Luray Virginia and the city. We were passed by a brown Vic, doing a buck something. I've known Ron for a very long time and have put down a bunch of miles with him. When he sees bait like that, he has to take it. So off he went and off I went with him. In years past, it would have been Ron having fun for a while, then realizing he'd ditched his buddy, slowing way down and waiting for me to catch up. He was more than a little surprised to look in his mirror and see my CTX right there with him. We were doing around 115 at the time, which really didn't seem all that fast anymore.
Harley wobble is long gone with the new frame all the way back in 2008 but especially since the Rushmore bikes. I will lean hard into a turn at 80MPH on Rushmore, I wouldn't do that on my 07 for fear of unsettling the suspension. What does happen over about 110MPH is the front end gets light. I suspect in my case it's because I put a tall windshield on and it acts a bit like an airfoil.In a wind tunnel, at 100mph, I bet the aero on the bike is all over the place. And with the add ons we do to the bike from stock, I'm sure it's worse.
Remember, the high speed wobble isn't just isolated to an HD. I've pushed the limits of the C50c many many times and this bike is not a hundred miler....I've felt the bike get light and unstable, it's a pucker moment for sure. At those speeds, when the bike compresses for road bed humps, depressions, the rebound, can get light.
