Looking back through this topic, I noticed that I have remarked that I had the XJ550 up to 100mph. That was a naked bike. On the Tiger, that is a different story. I've had that at 100mph with the cases on, driving through Germany. And without cases, I've had it up to 125mph without luggage. :)

I am usually in the 55-70 mph range on the highway. 35-40 is the fastest I've felt comfortable going on dirt/gravel roads

Here no one sticks to the speed limit! not bikes nor cages town has a 60kph speed but the people go 80-100, highway is 120kph but people drive 140ish

Here the people drive their bikes either with no numberplates or very small plates going 180 to 250kph.

With my xj I do 20kph faster than moving cars in town and on highway I do 140kph fastest I have gone on it was 196kph, we have almost no bends here so opening u is the way to stay awake :oops:
I ride solo
