    I had the limiter removed a few months ago and have gotten it to 158...but getting north of 150 is always a challenge. I suppose one day I'll have to wake up at 6 AM on a Sunday and hit the A66 towards Frankfurt, probably the only time/place around here it would be possible.

    I have a 05r1 too! Only been to a buck 40 tho. And it's geared down so probly only 125 or so. Anything over 110 on a bike is kinda scary lol

    I had the cobalt up to 150mph at Fontana on the banked front "straight". I have had the cobalt faster in the middle of the night, probably 130-2 am, going through Mexico on in between Tucson and Yuma LOL. There is NOTHING out there lol. With the tune limiting the car to 7k rpm in top gear and not the 155mph speed limiter it got to 160 and had more. I got pulled over probably 2 miles after I settled down to 80mph. Haha.

    Better to have it happen that way. I once got pulled over doing 86 in a 55 in my Jeep--just a few hours before my friend let me drive his new GT-R and I hit about 145. Of course, I was in Mexico, so NBD.

    160mph in my old 2003 Mustang Cobra. I was driving the car from Kentucky to it's new home in Boston, MA and all I can say is that the northwest corner of PA was a complete BLUR.
