As he went to check it out, he came across a guy carrying a helmet walking along the road, the rider was covered in blood. They went to where the bike was, he found half a deer well off the road to one side, the other half well off to the other side. The cop said "I have one question, how fast were you going when you hit the deer?", the guy said "150"!! The cop said "I guess it wasn't your day to die".

The rider must have hit it dead center, like a meat cleaver. I suspect his undies were quite brown as well.

That guy must have some strong mojo with the Big Guy upstairs!! What a story!

Been 135 mph on Interstate hwy with stock R (except for SE air filter) with rpm's left to go. Might go 140 -145 with a tail wind. Steady as a rock at 135. Passed highway patrol about 3 miles after I got back to 70. I wonder what a 135 mph ticket would cost? Close one.
G's are good... OK.

I *might* have been curious ONCE coming back from Devil's Tower towards Spearfish, and the road was magically empty.

~135mph with a tuck, X-shield, V&H, PC-V, topless and a hella tune.

Saw God, saw what the bike could do, called it a day.

It might be a brick, but it's a pretty fast brick!

Upside down top speed

Around where I live there is a nice straight piece of road that you can let the dog off the chain. I have had my Street Rod off the clock which was reading 240 kms/h, which is about 150 in your language. This was before mods for more power. In Australia we have the different front sproket, so this would add to top speed figures. Now I dont know if the speedo is as accurate as the fuel gauge - but I do know I was hauling ass, and she was happy to pull more. Good fun, but not advised where you might take out innocent bystanders.

How many points on your license do you receive for going 25+ over the speed limit?

Dunno, in no hurry to find out. I would never intentionally exceed the posted speed limit.

(Thankful that I live in a rural area with county roads & few deputies on patrol & only 1 OSP trooper.)

OK I don't own an R but my dx on stage 1 would do 150 with some rpms left. After stage 2 the thing would bury 150 with room to spare. I changed to 26t front sprocket and it will still get to 140. It pulls 125 in a 1/4 at the drag strip.
