I haven't hit the rev limiter on my '07 Aero 750, and I've had her up to 85mph on the interstate!

I wind mine up and only hit the limiter a coupla times ;)
That was when "Drag Racing" someone from a STOP..

NOT Really Drag Racing, Merely 'Keeping up' with BIG Engine Bikes...;)

I wouldn`t do ANYTHING Illegal,

We're all innocent (law abiding citizens) that's why we ride shadows. They are quiet, underpowered and won't go over the speedlimit. It's just the nature of the machine, please officer, it's the bikes fault.

Don't know if I've ever hit the limiter on the Spirit or the Valkyrie.

This is not the Spirit, but the pic has a story...
Tire Land vehicle Wheel Vehicle Fuel tank


So, the story is that I had attended a weekend ride in Fredericksburg, TX with a bunch of other Valkyrie riders. We used to call it the "Texas Ride In." Anyway, on that Sunday morning I left the motel before sunup to make my son's early baseball game which was a couple of hours away. An empty highway, a beautiful sunrise and a speed trap in a small town resulted in this picture.

When the trooper asked if there was a reason I was speeding, I told him about the baseball game. He gave me a warning! :D

To both of these.... reminds me of the old Jim Carey movie Liar Liar.... with the cop scene...
Cop: Do you know why I pulled you over?
Biker: Depends on how long you've been following me.

lol

Man I always love those Valkrie's. Really enjoyed riding my friends. My only complaint was sitting behind that big wind screen and with the bike running so smooth I never had the actual sensation of riding a bike. I don't think there's a smoother ride out there.
