Too much and don't know. Speed limit around here is 45. I have hit 55 but not really willing to risk a ticket just to find out what she will do.

Huh.

Where to you live? My uncle in NC told me when I went down to visit "25 mph means 25 mph here."

Here in NJ I go 80 mph on the NJTPK all the time. Thats prolly close to the average speed. Posted 65.

Right, im so tired of hearing people quoting top speeds going down hills tailing an 18 wheeler with a 10 mile wind behind them.

Jesus, if the bike cant do it on flat ground in a normal driving position stop quoting it!
Lol I'm the same way... EVERYONE knows its ONLY a 125 and its not gonna go fast so stop saying it'll go 70 cause it won't


I also have a boulder in my garage... It only goes 0 mph but when I get this thing going down hill, boy does it really move... I got it up to the high teens! 18 mph to be exact, and that's an INDICATED 18 mph!!!

I don't know what my top speed is cause I haven't tried to max it yet. Having too much fun just breaking it in.

Maybe you just need to get enough miles on your bike to break it in? I've got 80 miles on mine and performance is still getting better as i continue to ride. (I think.) I stop riding aggressively or hold back if it starts to smell - I hope that's normal. :/ Never had a new bike before. First ride smelled BAD...
