I think I understand how these bikes suddenly make you dumb, cause damn did I ever want to do dumb things riding it!
Haha...if you really want to see how fast it goes, I know some guys go out on HWY 7 between Hope and before the junction to Harrison. It is dead straight on that stretch for miles-miles. Just go on a day that is not too windy as you'll feel even your helmet vibrate (especially on sport bikes).
However correct me if I'm wrong, I believe there is a speed limiter for bikes not going past 300kph. The busa's have this limiter I read about for the European markets.
