Great video.
Now that'* the kind of video I'd like to see from fellow BonneClub members......Will??

Tempting....but the analog speedo goes off the scale at 125.

You ever hold a camera in the right position to see the HUD? It'* gotta be right in front of your face. I did it at 132 or 137....something like that. A couple guys here have seen that pic. It was pretty spooky watching the road come at me at that speed in a little LCD display.

BTW, I lost that pic when my pc crashed last month. Can someone send it back to me?

Hell just make a better pic at higher speeds What is the speed that the HUD cuts out? I know it does at one point, but what is it?

They have the same pinkish roads in Ontario too.

Nice vids. I wish I was in that TA going 160, that would have been a ride to remember.

What can I do to get to 151? Would a chip be enough

I would like to see that HUD pic if you ever find it.
