Kaz... I was working the other day and "clocked" you doing 75mph in a 25mph zone, doing a wheelie, and sitting backwards on the bike! That's about 25 bizillion dollars in fines!:D

I think all V-Rods have high MPH potential.I've had mine buried.140 plus!Next to a Yammadog, on a public highway.It was hard to hang onto with everything in the stock locations.

You guys are the king of speed on the V-rod. The fastes I've had mine up to was 130 on a downhill part of the better freeway system on Oahu, called H-3.

At 130 it seemed the bike hunkerd down and was srtraight as an arrow. Had a hard time with the feet and pant legs in the stock position, and my ball size dropped to teeny so I backed off. Not so much the worry bout handling issues, as I was impressed, it was what could happen to the liscense if caught.

Last year Feb my wife and I rented a Elctra Glide in Vegas, and we darn near froze our butts off, so Kaz, I am sure it took awhile to thaw out after a couple high speed distance rides. Sure envy the open roads there though, as there is plenty of space to do your thing!
