So the other day I go on a 100 mile trip with some friends. They're riding a 2004 ZX-12, a 2004 CBR1000, and a V-Max. Here's me on my 250. Believe it or not, kept up just fine. I stayed at the back, not wanting to push it, but since I had 850kms on the clock, I figured I would slowly open her up. Well, they took off on me a few times, and we were fighting a head wind. A couple of times I got it up to 143 in a tuck, and I wasn't even full throttle! Thing was super smooth, no vibes etc. They were astonished that I was able to keep up with them!
