100mph!

It's official! At 12 noon on the 14th of Jan 2009 on a test run to see how the Veypor functioned we clocked a 100mph or 161.8kmph on the veypor motorcycle computer.

The run started off slowly, i was'nt planning to open the throttle.I still had the stock speedo bolted on to see how inaccurate it is.I revved monster dog up past 3000rpm and suddenly decided to push the bike a little.The acceleration was instantanious and fast, before i knew it was blasting down the road. So used to the older albion 4 speed gearbox,i changed into 5th only after i began to slow down.

The run was fast but for the short distance and slow start i was not expecting the bike to hit a 100mph so easily.

I Dont have the correct cable to attach the veypor to my laptop and download the data as yet, so i have taken a picture of the screen.

The future looks bright for Monster Dog.
