My bullsh-meter reads pretty high on that one too. 211 kph, I'll buy that. 211mph, I doubt it.

211k=131mph. seems a little low for a bike, especially a 750.  maybe he read 211 on his speedo uncorrected with a drastic sprocket change?

Ever since the days of the rice rocket (IE: Civics, Supras, etc), I have come to learn a few things, and one of them is that those guys LOVE to mis-calibrate their speedos so they look like they're going a lot faster than they actually are.

Video of them being clocked by a radar gun or video of a GPS ... then maybe i'd believe it.
Ignore the comment above.
