I am just curious what is the maintained speed for other riders? I know we all do 100+ at times but due to traffic or roads it is not possible to maintain that speed. What MPH do you ride at most of the time under normal riding conditions.[?]

65 - 75 MPH indicated on twisty rural highways. I don't do interstates or major highways if I can avoid them. Try to avoid civilization as much as possible when riding, but generally do the speed limit in towns and cities to avoid tickets.

why is that to slow Fade-Dude ?,,you said the same speed , lol . 120.kmh is for regular riding around . If i'am in a area i like with good turns i pick up the pace, but i hardly ever speed going in a straight line . To many animals crossing the road .

when i'am out with others it changes .

I usually drive the country roads at 110 to 130 km/h but love to pick up the pace on open areas to 160. (100 mph) Way too much wildlife around here and, there are lots of vehicle-animal collisions, especially near wooded areas.

I go about 20 over the posted speed limit. Cops don't seem to bother me at that speed. That is indicated so I'm probably going 15 over.

i try to do no more then 10 mph above speed limit on streets, and 85 to 90 mph on freeways. i live in a very fast growing town so sometimes the streets get crwoded so i have to slow down. safety first i want to live to ride another day.

In downtown Dallas mixmaster I normally do like 80mph, but when the freeway opens up typically 90mph. If it is like a Friday and ready to just hurry and get home it is 120mph.
