They got an app for that? 

Ok, I'll bite.

Quick rip today, doing 135 in 5th still accelerating, ran out of road  :( .... Figured I had made enough noise heading out of town, so I took'r back to the garage.  ;D

not a LEO...just curious. (I am not brave enough to find the top speed)
I have a 2010, hit 140 in 5th
OK I took out the where...no point in letting LEO know where to hang out

147 GPS at Pacific Raceways.  I know it was faster but the GPS lag let me down.  Ran out of track long before I ran out of motor.
I NEVER exceed the posted speed limit on public roadways 8)

'08, 150, 4th gear, on a hill appropriately named "horsepower hill". Sans bags it's easier to get to that speed. Don't do it often, and never for any length of time.

I ran out of balls at 130 a couple of times. It still had plenty of gitty up at that speed but I was also concerned about breaking the windshield mechanism with my CB Ultra Tour on it. I put it all the way down and tucked in behind it but if it breaks with an OEM at high speed, it must be really vulnerable with a barn door on it. I had Ghul disable the 155 limiter on my ECM but I don't ever expect to use it.

Er... I mean I heard about someone doing this, it wasn't me ;)

BTW: That was 130 on the speedo so probably less than 125 in reality.
