Looks like the engine had more to offer but I had to pass! And yeah - it does sound like you're riding a Bullet (EDIT - ENFIELD Bullet)
How can a Twin sound like a Thumper unless the "does sound" is exaggerated!!

Wow, that was pretty fast for that pucca city car! I managed to go upto about 115 kmph on my 2001 Santro, and even at that speed I was very unsure about it. I felt the car may "take off" if I push it any further!

While in US I have gone upto 140 mph on a Ford Mustang and 135 mph on Toyota Camry. Both appeared to be capable of much further speeds, even though a cop might still overtake you!

I have done 250km/h - 260km/h in my 997 and 996. I have done about 230 in the Gallardo and only about 200km/h in a Ferrari 360. The Ferrari is the one I like the least. The Gallardo is good for way more in my opinion but I just never had a chance.

My top speed is 125 on Pune-Mumbai expressway for a few minutes only. After that it was normal 100 kmhr. Basically I fear of tyre burst and not my capability to drive at this speed.

160 kmph on my NHC Gxi yesterday, at the Hapur Moradabad bypass not bad considering the "sedate sedan" tag acquired by this cousin of the purpose built V-Tech.

I think I could have just about maxed out the potenial of this car, with exception to a controlled speed bowl test. It was 4th gear all the way to 140, and then a quick slip to 5th all the way to the top. Was trying to keep up with my boss's Accord V 6, and then he stepped on it making me feel like I was breaking rapidly as he surged ahead.

Cheers!

Here goes, No pics of the damn run as the wife says she was too busy worrying whether I was gonna die (it was her first time, so.... )
That's all for now, will take a Video the next time I go with a friend or something. I usually go alone to the speedway as carrying the kid and wife becomes taxing and I have to give them attention while I don't want my eyes off this Babe in the pit lane (don't get Ideas).
