Back then 140mph was real fast! No knees out either.

I admit it, I've never done 140.

My ZX14 did 139 mph in 440 yards at 5,300 feet! Third gear at redline was 135 mph!!

At sea level? WOW, never had the chance.

My 2005 Z750s was my fastest bike, 122 mph on the gps. It had more, I just ran out of space and never tried again. My FJ-09 is electronically limited at 115mph. I've done that probably twenty times.
