[QUOTE=ghostrider1964;17428222]HasBeen I was in 6th gear not 4th IF I had been in 4th Pizzaboy would only have seen dust

6th---6th---. Now let us see. You shift into 6 at what?---say55mph. We are on ball bearing surface--- you are down in the powerband---say 65mph and he blows the doors off---90 mph???. Whats wrong with this picture?!!!

Well I did find a Cycle World discount code in the magazine. $2 off. But with the "convenience fee" of $1 I decided to get them at the door.

And I have seen 120mph indicated on my Super Enduro on dirt/gravel. So i'm guessing maybe 108 actual. In my younger days I saw 102 on my dads gold Wing on a gravel road. Hmmm, I don't think I ever got around to mentioning that to him

yeah.....How convenient of them to offer......but I guess somebody's gotta pay the card fees.

I WISH THEY'D JUST OFFER A REALISTIC PRICE TO EVERYONE AT THE GATE & DO AWAY WITH ALL THE DISCOUNT CODES & COUPONS PERIOD!!!

Kinda like goin to the grocery store....with all their coupons !!!!!! Ya gotta spend a lotta time & waste plenty o paper to save any $$$$

As SOG would say, Jeebus! Just a straight away and I felt the need for speed no race, have'n fun!!! I really don't think I need to go 120 but if I had the need or had a death wish...hummm. Check out Paris to Dakar or Baja 500 lots of KTM's do'n 120+ and winning. No GS's on those race coarses. Just saying.
