Just a hair over 120 and it ran out of steam (MPH that is). And THAT was with that crazy huge Tulsa Tall windshield too.

155 MPH (per the GPS), but only for a few miles. I have discovered he bike just uses too much gas at those speeds. The Madstad is really in it element then, but the 1800cc motor still swills down too much gas.

I have ridden 126 MPH on my 2013 and have a picture somewhere of the gps reading. I'll keep looking.
I reached 114 MPH on my 2018 by the gps. Presently the gps on the 2018 says 112 MPH.

130 once, did not realize I was going that fast. One of those wild hair moments, I usually ride pretty conservative. A lot can go wrong real fast at those speeds.

Wow. That's about 20 MPH faster than the fastest I've ever heard of on a GL1800. You do anything to it other than a Madstad shield?

My 2001 would top out about 133 but it took 3 miles to get it there.

My 2013 won't break 130. Most I've seen on it is about 122. I think it might do a bit more. Maybe 125 or 126 if I really wanted to see. My 2001 was definitely faster.
