    Last week got in a race with a pack of harleys heading back to Sturgis from titty tuesdays in Montana. Don't know how fast I was going, but I was in 5th turning just a tad over 6500 rpm's. At that speed the road seems to get really narrow and there was no site of them in the mirrors...lol

    If you are running stock Metz, that's 163 mph. They were probably wondering WTF you were on. :cool:
