About 145mph on a Kawasaki ZX11. The bike had more to go, but I did not. The acceleration happened in a few hundred feet, but the decel had to be 1-1/2 miles. These sport bikes speed up way faster than they slow down. Jeez! :ylsuper:

This looks like a fun first thread to post in!

My three fastest speeds:

150 mph on an '04 Ducati 749 - a local highway  :screwy:

160 mph in an '08 Alpina tuned 335i - autobahn in Germany

137 mph in an '01 330i

Planning on driving slow from here on out

135 mph in a 2015 Challenger Hellcat. The owner said there was lots of pedal left.  :burnout:

    Honda CB 750.  Palmetto Expressway in Miami.  2 am , back in the 70's. Had the needle buried when I hit the curve heading south. Never let off, made it thru.  Still think back on that night and I'm amazed I'm still alive.  Couple months later a buddy from high school got killed when he went into that curve all out in a GTO.

215 kph which would be about 133 mph in my Alfa Romeo 159 SW 1.9 liter 4-cylinder diesel (180 HP). Nice long straight part of a Croatian highway... :-)

About 155 in a nascar stoker at Charlotte Motor Speedway back in may of 2013.   This was with the Rusty Wallace Challenge.   

No speedometer in the car, but was told top maximum speed was 175 with rev limiter at 5850 rpm...   I saw around 5200 RPM which would equate to 155.  I also rode with a professional driver who was able to top out the Rev Limiter so i was riding at 175.    What a thrill.   In order to hit the max you had to keep the hammer down in the turns, and we were told to not do that but to "coast" into the turn and then hold gas at about 50% thru the turn and then nail it coming out.   That isnt enough to top it out.   See:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3DcE6RekiI&feature=youtu.be

In 1975 I did about 100 in a camaro just a couple miles south of there on the Palmetto Xway. Got pulled over and almost arrested two minutes later by a trooper. I asked the trooper how he saw me, and he said I passed him up!
All these years later I still remember what it felt like to see that blue light in my rear view.

LOL unfortunately I have seen those lights a few too many times...

Around about 79 I was going home on Interstate 94 from Bismarck ND to Mandan ND; there is a part where you come down a long hill that goes over the Missouri river where it curves slightly right, but just before this hill there is like a 3-5 mile straight flat stretch. I was driving my 74 Challenger with a 70 440 6 pack, AT and 3.23 gears; feeling froggy I was in it and hit the point where it began down hill doing about 125. Just as I hit this point and began down hill, there was a state trooper sitting on the side where he could catch people doing exactly what I was doing. He hit the lights and I hit the gas, when I got to the bottom of the hill I looked down and the speedo was coming off 145; I looked back and much to my amazement no cop. It was then that I began to wonder when the last time I checked the lugs and without the cop, I came off the gas and slowed to around the speed limit. About 2 days later while at work which was on main street of Bismarck at an exhaust shop, I hear this voice from behind me say "who owns that orange Challenger parked out front"? I turned and there was a state trooper. I responded with; "it might be mine" and he said "where you hauling ass down 94 about 2 nights ago"... I said that "maybe"... he responded by saying that since he didn't get a license plate there wasn't anything he could do now but wanted to know what the hell was in that thing. We went out and I showed him the engine and we talked cars for a minute. As he left he said "catch ya later"... 1 week later, same place doing 10 over, there he was... I pulled over immediately. He laughed and gave me a ticket for 7 over...

Good times...
