The only time I've ever gotten a speeding ticket was when I was test riding a V4 Tuono. Whoops.

The speed and the revs are bloody addictive on that thing. To me, the bike felt like it was falling...

Unless you're going far away from civilization, not much I'd say. Perhaps patch a tire, tighten the chain, maybe even change/clean spark plugs, if they're accessible?
