Come on I know I'm not the only one in the southeast region who rides a Indian . Just how fast have you gone on your Indian ? 95 on #964 Blue Chieftain . Just broke 800 miles , after 1000 going to open her up . My personal best was on a TR140 Triumph , 172 , wonder if my Chieftain will get close to that?

I had my Chieftain to 119. Seems to be governed at that speed. I now have the stage1 pipes hopefully will get more speed if needed. At first I was disappointed, but the indian dealer in Ocala said I will get more when the stage 1 exhaust is installed.

Made a pass today on my Chieftain going down a very long down hill road. As I moved back to my lane I looked down and was at 120. Got a little freaked and slowed down. Pretty sure I had more throttle to give. LOL

Best I could do was 120 before I ran out of throttle. I have to believe there is a governor somewhere keeping me from going any faster. These days with some of the road conditions...that was probably faster than safe to do.

I'm not saying it's impossible but 172mph on a 750 cc Bonnie with only 49 hp, tell me how that could be. I can't wait to hear this story.
