    Trophy high speed experience

    Hi all,
    Please consider the following as a testimony, not as a feat. Just had recently the opportunity to ride miss Trophy at high speed, and I can confirm the bike keeps stable. This was late evening on a highway, no cars nor trucks, no wind, dry weather, temperature around 10 Celsius : tested it up to 200km/h (191 on the tomtom memory). This was my own limit, not the bike's. rpm was a bit below 7000. This is fast, even if bike let me feel comfortable and safe. This was only a test and confirms that this chassis is well designed together with suspension. I was solo, TES set on comfort. Good enough for long rides at authorized speeds.
    Cheers, Hugues

    The Trophy is good for 135mph/220kph. I've had her at this speed on the Nurburgring Nordshleife and I agree it is very stable.

    Just so you know, the upper limit that the cruise control can be set is 100 mph.  Good for crossing the Bonneville Salt Flats on Interstate 80.  just say'n.

    Once, I got on the throttle with some sport bikes, reaching 146mp/h-235km/h. That day the GPS wasn't on the bike. The Trophy was stable, but never, never again.

    Never tried it on French roads, too risky for my wallett and my licence. Did 210 kmh (tacko reading) once once a German Autobahn

    Maybe we need some Trophy owner to go to Beeville, Texas and do the Texas Mile to see what it can manage on an old airport runway from a standing start.  A friend's Corvette went 197 there a few years ago, but he was disappointed, he was hoping for 200 mph plus.  935 hp on the dyno with nitrous.  A Trophy there would be neat!

    Well west Texas has more than a few roads were you can top a hill and can see ten miles.
    With approval of Texas  Commission on Law-Enforcement or maybe it was after the fact or not ,,,, :164: with the top case and side cases my GPS's showed 121 mph and the  Cruise control  would not set above 100 mph.
    The Trophy is very stable at speed.
    I'm going to be on the 12 step program for Speed  Addiction it's hard to go Slow like 75 or 80 mph after upper  mph well it sounds like most Trophy owners Know.

    I'm 2slow as a reminder to Slow Down we all have our issues.
    Well it is slower than going Mach 1  :156:
