man you guys don't know your history...the GS1100 was the preferred street fighter back in the day...once chopped it was hot shit...and you could get a big bore kit which put it at 1260cc with the turbos and you easily had 130bhp. That Irish guy from San Francisco still rides his and he says he goes out on Friday nights to smoke the guys on the brand new R1s

People have gone faster on worse tires.

No one ever claimed top speed runs were a safe, cuddly hobby XD
