Hopefully I will get to make a trip there some time. Apparently the ferry connection is pretty bad as of now. Unfortunately no royal chefs for me though

Interesting, a friend of mine told me a story of how he knew someone who had his up to an indicated 200 kph and it was rock solid stable.

I too have ridden up to an indicated 200 kph and found the bike to be quite stable. No farkles or luggage. Running the bike on the tyres it came with, Bridgestone Battle Wings.

Oh and here's a pic lest I invite the wrath of the mods!
