I'm accustomed to hitting maybe 55 on some of the dirt/gravel straights on the roads I've ridden numerous times, not so sure I'm ready for it on new roads.
The top 5 bikes are probably running in the 60 mph average ball park...this means you are going 100 mph whenever you can. Newer competitors are in the 40 mph average speed.
