Next thing they will do is put a "sun roof" in a helmet. Then maybe a wiper system.

Not a bad idea, but I can see it also being a distraction. No worries. My bike has mirrors! :mrgreen:

Can't outrun a radio my friend.It's not the one behind you that you have to worry about it's the one waiting for you up ahead.
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

I envy you the testosterone you have. Thirty years ago, I would have been doing this (and did a couple of times) but as we age, we tend to lose the "Immortal, Invulnerable" beliefs, and slow down a bit. My hat is off to you for the fun this must bring you. May you never hit a car, or a child at those speeds.

I guess I am a little gutless....I have never had the nerve or a bike for that matter that would go that fast....When I first got my first 75 wing in 75....I once had it up to about 125mph...I was pretty loaded as we going across country and was in the middle of AZ. The front wheel started getting very very light...That was enough for me....I was gonna see how fast it would go, but let off before reaching top speed. Don't think I have been over 100mph more than a couple times since then...About 90 is my limit when riding on the 80mph interstates here in TX. I'm not real fond of tickets and don't try to outrun cops anymore.

im most deffinatly the coolest grandpa in the old folks home! and very skilled rider and race car driver and the very opposite of boring.and by the way the last time i outran the pigs at 120-140mph i had a rear flat tire.piece of cake.and i do keep in mind not to hurt anyone or myself while keeping my youthfull skills polished.its like bodybuilding or weight lifting or running to keep in shape n keep your reflexes sharp.i also can roller skate almost as well as i did on the skate speed skate team at age 17 and i can ride a skateboard in a half pipe and still perform some old school stunts like from the 70s type stuff not like todays tricks but im 47 and i can ride a skateboard and the youngsters are in awe.your comment may has well just said GROW UP! or IM CHILDISH?! WELL THERE YOU HAVE IT I REFUSE TO GROW UP AND IM PROUD I CAN STILL HANG WITH THE KIDS.im very safety concious FOR REAL!!! ive driven garbage trucks,dump trucks,tri axle loads loaded unsafely,80,000 pounds on 3 axles,tractor trailers from the 70s junkers to todays condos. and the last thing i wanna do is c someone hurt or get hurt.but i will say this id rather die suddenly in a violent oooooops than lie in some hospital beepn and weeezen.i hope i havent offended anyone but i live life to the fullest and really dont like laws.cops are good but they should keep busy with the killers thieves and molesters and non driving inexperienced morans like drunks and people who drive over there head while txting.although i text my kids while riding my wing,lol sorry again

Why am I thinking...."That is going to give some interesting sun burns on the top of my head" when I see that? Like the idea of all the vents for sure though.
