Fess up, who was this?

Looks like 53 northbound. Certainly a zippy way to get home.

I was just about to say that. He's got the dash setup for KPH to make it look faster. He was in no way doing 180 indicated and passing cars that slowly.

Yea, its totally not MPH. Think about when you are riding.... and the speed... and compare... unless of course if that vid is slowed down.

And the only reason I know this is because I accidently threw my bike into Kph one day and I was confused at my speed vs. what my odometer read. I was like damn! Im flying!

No I think it's legit. Because once he hits 186, it never indicates any higher but his tachs keep climbing.

It's gotta be. Unless he went to great lengths to make his tachometer climb and the speed indicate the same then I don't see how it's not legit. I think the camera makes it appear slower, but at the start when he goes passed that truck you can tell that the speed seemed accurate.

True. He still seems to top out speedwise pretty close to redline in 6th. Even with sprocketing the speed would still be right in the ballpark.

i completely agree... it didnt look like he was doing 180mph when passing the cars... maybe 180kmh = 112.5mph... 180mph = 288kmh=NO WAY!

I can't wait until all the sad faces show up and the "he was such a good guy", "he was so responsible on his bike", etc fly why he suicides himself on the dan ryan.
