I about pooped myself when I saw these photos on another board. I know the bike will do well into the 180's stock, but can't say I've ever seen what appears to be proof outside magazine tests and whatnot.

I owned a 60c for a short time and I am no means an expert on GPS. Anyone with experience with these GPS units tell me if you can alter the display somehow? Conq, isn't this the exact model you've got up for sale?

Well the bike will certainly do it, I'm just surprised anyone would be dumb enough to stretch its legs unless they were on a dry lake bed or some such place.

Why would you be surprised. You have seen what people will do to themselves if you let them :idunno:

They can sometimes "glitch" if they lose signal. Mine showed in the 190's once when I had the 929.
Also sometimes the government applies a bit of noise, however I do not think they have used this 'feature' in a while.

Maybe took it in a plane with them as well. Thats about the right speed for a decent twin engine...

That could be the case. Mine said 483mph at one time and of course was after a flight.

so you do 483 and don't get a ticket while that guy did only 205 and got one. I guess you outran the helicopter.

Well, once you pass 10,000ft there is no speed limit.

Yeap. I've seen some pretty insane speeds in my old Jeep Cherokee...

You sure that wasn't Bacchy subsitituting height for speed?

48.3" almost puts him just over four foot tall...


[just kidding, I don't even know the bugger. But at 6', everyones short.]

I dunno about fudging numbers, other than photoshop, but I use a 2620 in my 2004 Freightliner, and I have had it showing 360 MPH... you read that right, 360 MPH. I can only figure that it was caused by the wild rocking that can occure on some rough roads, as I have my antenna mounted outside my mirror.

If you are in an area with tree cover or other obstructions, GPS speed figures can get way off. I've seen triple digit max speeds that I never came close to approaching all the time. It's not very useful. Also depending on the software version in the GPS receiver it may be off. I had trouble with a certain release of software for my GPS and until Garmin updated it, the max speed was always way off.

And just what speed were you doing when this glitch occurred? :huh:

This alleged top speed run took place in Florida on some lonely, 20-mile stretch of arrow straight highway with no trees (or anything else for that matter) in sight.
