Busa, do not need to say anything else. First production bike to hit 200mph, with a change of pipes, and nothing else. Then they went a got all PC and started governing the mph to 189. But I must say, the lane markers are a solid white line going 200mph on the Autobahn. And I was holding on as tight as I can and as tuck behind the windscreen as possible, it was a rush back in my youth playing on the Autobahn. LOL

I would say you are crazy but I've done the same...Not 200 but 165...That was as fast on a bike as I want to go. Which bike??? A heavily modified Honda CBX 6 cylinder. LOL

one of my current bikes had no issue hitting the governor at 189mph last summer on the autobahn. Race a Ferrari in straight section. Left him behind, glad it was a short race. I knew if it was longer, I would have been beat. To much effort to stay in control at that speed and he had more grip in the conners.

I have only been to the Barber's museum once. Wish I had taken my camera. I live just on the other side of town form the museum and track.
