The road sign said 110. In outback NSW the speedo on the German mothership was reading 130-140 matching the GPS. The bloody DR was close behind whenever I stopped. The Deathwings were well past their use-by date when we got back home.

i know what you mean Gavo. It's for our own safety that Japanese speedos ( cars and bikes ) are 10% optimistic. The Europeans can build then so they're dead accurate. I guess that's where all those out of work Swiss watchmakers found new careers.
