I have on the BV but it gets a little head wobble around that speed that I don't like so I try to keep it closer to 80 than 100 but many of the roads we ride are 60-70 and I do not want a speeding ticket so reserve the higher speeds for passing when they'll usually forgive you if they catch you.

Hmm, that makes it sound better. You should be able to get 100 MPH out of a 400 cc motor.
