It's a KZ1000? Didn't they have Metric Km/hr speedometers in Australia back then?

It can't be a 240 mph speedo... 240 Km/hr = 149 mph.

Indicated 180 Km/hr = 112 mph.

Yes, its a Kz1000. I would think it's in kmh too but they actually rode that and put it on film, which I don't think the modern movie makers will do. I remembered my gsx1100 behaved badly at that speed, maybe short of a quarter/full fairing ?

Goose's bike sure behaved badly at that speed!


I always loved him doing that burnout after getting l*id!

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!
