- I have not maxed my '98 1200 out, but I have been up to 110/115 for
short bursts. I would NOT recommend crossing 100 with a big screen on
the 96-98 fairing. Did that once, the bike seemed to "float" the
front end. Had my wife on the back too, might have contributed to it.
All is well with a ultra short screen...just haven't had the need or
the road to make it to the top end.
A thought for those wanting to cross the triple digit line (or any
adrenalin inducing actions for that matter)...make sure you keep your
head on afterwards. Second time I blipped 100 on the Trophy the guy
in front of me on a Ninja almost ditched it at much lower speeds on
the very next corner. Normally an average rider, he obviously was off
aka Flatlander 1200
