I have accurately calculated with my pantometer that I use about the same as you but sometimes up to 85hp on a gravel road as I am about to crash (say at 100mph or so) have possibly used all of my 100 needies on occasion but consider it a similar sensation to running a fuelly dragster (way to scary)

So I'm guessing youse guys bikes are insane

A guy I ride with who had a 690 was horrified when he being tapped out was constantly having his mirrors filled with a wheel spinning swaying from side to side monster, He has since gone out and traded it on a nice new white 990
