It doesn't belong to Ghost Rider personally but he did, obviously, ride the living balls off of it. His highest speed power wheelie was apparently in the 190 mph range.

There's a strange silence above 180 that cannot be replicated through prose or video. A faired bike is worth the experience.

You can't hear the bike anymore. The wind pressure against your body as the air moves around you makes the wind seem distant, even though it is the greatest force you're experiencing. The tire howl seems even further away.

I have gotten my ZZR up to 160. Its a nice feeling. I hear its not truely fast till your pushing 180 then your either do it or you dont. Not sure if I have the balls for that.

I hated anything over 150 on my 900, with no fairings. I hated it. Not a comfortable feeling at all, the wind force is to great to even enjoy it. Now, full fairings i had my bike topped out many times...speedo bouncing off 185...im sure it wasnt going that fast, but it felt cool.

Top of fifth gear is about 165. It runs out of steam before I do.

I've done 150 on my old z1000. That thing is naked and it felt fine. The wind didn't bother me or anything. I've been going 90 on extremely windy days that felt worse.
