Push Mountain Road (Arkansas)
45° lean angle or 1 G
155 mph top speed
13.44 minutes to transit 25.16 miles.
I ain't no maths whiz, but I think that's somewhere around 112 mph on average.

Very cool program.

I'll never do that, though.

There is no way I'm that fast, that skilled, that brave, or that stupid.

I plugged in my favorite road to see what it came up with and came to the conclusion that the "bike" it's computing things for would have to accelerate and brake better than a MotoGP bike, because it shows accelerating from 52 to 80 mph in less than 100 feet and decelerating from 66 to 27 mph in an even shorter distance.

It bears no resemblance to reality other than the slowest speed that it shows for any given corner. It ignores all the rest of the dynamics of riding a motorcycle.

Everyone knows that a KTM 990 has better performance and handling characteristics than any MotoGP bike. :D

This is totally for real.

That's funny. I know the person who made that on another forum (or at least claims to). He said he spent 20 hour programming it and that was on December 30th so there hasn't been much time for tweaking out the details.

Does it default to Mt. Palomar for everyone?

I used to run Push Mountain Road every Sunday morning with my VFR. With my girlfriend timing me, my best time was 22 minutes and 10 seconds, which averages out to something like 68 mph. That was about the limit of my bravery and talent.

And there were guys on Push Mountain Road who'd pass me like I was sitting still. I know those guys were running it end to end under nineteen minutes.

I am sure that if somebody had no regard for the speed limit, it would be easy to run Push Mountain Road in 18 minutes.....

We ran it in about 26. Here are some excerpts from the video

I think Push Mountain Road is 25.15 miles in length, so a 25 minute run would average out to 60 mph. Do I have the math right.

A 26-minute run means you're traveling the speed limit, on average — maybe a little slower in some of the curves and a little faster on the straights.

I'll check out the video tonight when my wireless bandwidth opens up.

I rode that last Memorial day weekend on a Sunday morning early on my DR. No other traffic. Wish I had timed it now just for the fun of it. Since I had never ridden it before and was loaded with camping gear I am sure I didn't set any records.
