I think you need to be able to do at least 150 mph to be safe.
But I enjoy high risk, and for most of the 40 years of accident free riding, most of my bikes would only do over 100 mph if you tossed them off a cliff.
I find iit hard to believe a modern 650 bike will not go faster then my air cooled 250 (85 mph).

Yamaha Vstar 650 - can't ride 2up, tire pressure is a 20mph factor on the bike, will only do about 85mph 1up, downhill, with a tailwind. IMO every bike should be capable of 110+ for passing/emergency purposes. Oh and its a pig and wont stop for Schitt.
