I highly recommend Ear Plugs for sustained riding at 50 MPH and above. I put mine in for even a 10 mile ride.I feel like it wants to explode lol. Maybe its the newness of me going 70
fbv,Yes, you do die faster at 140 but at 140 you won't have time to see your demise.
Someday I want to give my bandit the holeshot experience. $1500 more for a bike that will do 171!
Or maybe a blown busa? Nah, then I really would die!
