No need to discuss, just add a vote, and we'll see how far we can go before people's bikes splutter and come to a stop on the road side….

hope this is useful to you people...it does not contain all bike's, but most of them are listed.
sorry i could not get it in MPH. but i have put a link for you.

110 is a bit optomistic for the Rapter chapter

*runs and hides*

Cagiva Raptor 1000. Depends what your doing with it really, can go like for like with an SV on the motorway, but on a nice rideout in the Dales where you're constantly in and out of 1st and second, round little roads, it sllllllluuuuuurps petrol!! Doesn't help when you think its going to behave and you don't fill up with fuel.
