May 2003, on the San Francisco to Miami Gumball 3000 Rally, the first CCR in the United States received the biggest speeding ticket in the world; 242 mph in a 75 mph zone somewhere in west Texas.


A Minnesota motorcyclist may have hit a record for a speeding ticket: 205 mph.
Minnesota State Patrol pilot Al Loney was flying over U.S. Route 61 near Washaba, part of a task force cracking down on this fall's "Flood Run," an informal motorbike ride that takes place twice a year along the Mississippi River.
He looked down and saw two bikes racing at high speed, and when one shot ahead, Loney waited till the rider reached a white marker in the road. Then he clicked his stopwatch.
A quarter mile and 4.39 seconds later, the rider reached another marker. Loney did the math: 205.11 miles per hour.
"I was in total disbelief," Loney told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "I had to double-check my watch because in 27 years I'd never seen anything move that fast."
Samuel Armstrong Tilley, 20, had soon been pulled over and booked for reckless driving, driving without a motorcycle license and driving 140 mph over the posted speed limit of 65.


Maybe he had to pee.....?

I read the story about the bike. It was a Honda RC51. NO WAY it could get up to 200+ mph unless it was modified. And more than a pipe and tune. Normally, they only go about 160 or so, stock.

It's not hard to develop the build/tune to hit that. The "gentlemans agreement for bike governors is 187...In theory no production bike will get faster than that, unless you un-govern it. With the right cams, fuel management, pipe, filter, and the right tune...You could wind out 205...Not sure I'd want to tho.

Well, I dont know. Being as the RC51 in stock form only puts down about 130 h.p., your gonna need MUCh more than a tune, cams, etc, on a V twin bike to bump it up another 40 or 50 h.p. needed to pull the gears required to hit that speed.

I'm not sure either- Limited experience with V-Twins- but my stock 600 Inline 4 hit 162 (on a closed course) and had some left. I've installed a pipe, filter, and fuel management with a generic tune since then. Sadly I have bolted on larger testicles...so I haven't been able to try to top that.

RC51 weight ~430 dry...Some drive gears (-2,+3) might help top that speed out....I think it could be done...but ::shrug:: Any one got an RC51 they want to let us test with??

I have a buddy with an RC51, and it will never get to that speed unless a turbo and gearing swap is done.
162 for a 6 is pretty respectable. Most of the new 600's are barley getting that, IF getting that speed.
