    My bike goes really fast...easily! bike goes really fast...easily!!!

    I just look at the speedo on my VTR when I think I'm doin 90...and I'm at 140!! Damn twin!!

    Anyone know of a good radar dector setup for sportbikes? I'm gonna git totally screwed by tickets unless I sort something out.

    I suggest you skip the Radar Detector and learn to control your throttle hand. It might just save your life, or someone elses.

    Just my $0.02 cents.

    Please ride safe.

    Sparring speed is a matter of simple physics:
    The height of your flight is inversely proportionate to the mass of your ass.

    The corrective measure for your speedometer readout problem is a throttle modulation adjustment .

    1. While riding, place your right hand on the throttle position you are comfortable using.
    2. Now, slowly roll your right hand forward.
    3. This should calibrate your speedometer to be closer in line with the posted speed limit signs.

    Good luck.

    Thanks...I think that is the procedure I'll have to go with.

    Funny thing, I suffered from the exact same phenomenon when I bought my VTR last year.....Must be VTR thing.....

    I was riding home from the dealer and I thought that I was going around 50-60 kph..(no other vehicles on the road to relate speed to)....then I actually looked at the speedo and I was going 90!!! (in a 50 zone)

    ......suddenly pictures of popos started flashing through my mind and I made a concious effort to pay more attention.

    The Busa does 140 km in 1st gear. Second takes you to 200, third takes you to 240. There's still 3 more gears to go. God damn I love that bike.
