I'm with you Rusty, I think it could take another tooth on the front but It doesn't need it. I can cruise at 65 but it feels best at 55-60.
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

Can I ask what you guys are getting for a max top speed?
Mine runs out of steam somewhere in the 75 range. 
Not that it really matters, the size and weight of the bike will always keep it in the 55/65 range anyway.  Didn't buy the bike for freeway work in the first place.

I haven't tried it yet t120r but I will do out of curiosity. I've done about 700 miles so I'm happy to use full throttle but I don't hold it fully open just yet. You're right in that it's academic, from what I've experienced during my wide open third gear blasts the revs needed for 75 in 5th are too high for sustained use, doesn't matter if it'll go faster.

Blimey I appear to be bonding with my machine again :-*

Yea, it only took about 50 miles for me to get hooked again. It is running real good.

I haven't tried to see what the top end is, but it'll go 80 for sure.
