well, went to maine with the 1965 triumph T120 and ran 131 until a spun rear wheel bearing enccouraged me to stop.


two of the kids came back with serious records in PP/P 250/4 on a 2007 ninja at 108 plus.

ill be putting the old 40 -spoke english wheels back on for september on the T120. at 135, its already the fastest production framed triumph in the running. id just as soon not be spitting wheels tho

Is it posted yet? NJ is a reasonable drive. So is VRRA. I've attended the last three Mid-Ohio Vintage Days too, so that may be an option

I remember seeing an ex works Honda 550 back in 1986 going into the hairpin at Pembrey out-dragging a Yamaha 750 EXUP.
Even as a 600 it was crazy fast for a ~10 year old bike.
I had done my 550 at least 5 years earlier but as it was street / touring bike I didn't go crazy with cams or carbs.
It was still good for around 130mp though, even with panniers (saddle bags for US readers)
