    I don't even look at my speedo on my bike anymore, just on my GPS.
    My bike is so much faster than yours that I dare you to ride it, you lame little turd. Do you have the balls to ride this BOTTOMLESS PIT OF TORQUE?

    If you wanna say something, speak into the mic. It's right above my balls.

    Not too too bad, at certain points (~200) the difference was big.

    Saw this video linked to it. Unrelated but good vid never the less.

    None right now...
    I didn't see much error there... There were large differences in times when he was accelerating quickly, but that was just the lag in the GPS readout. I think you'd find that if you paused at 200, the GPS would catch up and be pretty close.

    On my VFR, though, I know my speedo is about 10% high. Same comparison, with my GPS, but I pause at the speed i'm interested in until the GPS catches up.
