Howdy. We just got back from a COLD hell. Went to see my brother in Ohio by train. Here are a few things I learned;
Why Chi town is called "The Windy City"
Why the wind there is known as "The Hawk"
Why his 02 GL1800 was as fast as he claimed. Re mapped the fuel system and rev limiter. Clocked on laser at 129 mph 2 up.
Had a great time. Havn't seen him in 20 years. Jeanne and I rode a train there and back. Driving would taken as long and cost more. Sure is some great rides up there. Went to a casino and left with $30.00 more than we went in with. (Love penny slots)
Hope all of you have a Merry Christmas ans a great New Year. I plan on a lot more riding in 2011. Foot is finally healed where I can ride when it warms up.

Sounds like a good trip lonewolftx! I don't really think I'll ever know for sure what the "upper limit" on my Wing is with just me onit letalone two up. The speed you mentioned is almost insane for two up riding. I saw 200 kph on the dream-o-meter and the bike 'felt' extremely busy. I had the ST doing 240kph (149 mph) and it didn't feel near as fast as the Wing at 25 mph less. Or maybe I'm just getting older:rolleyes:
