Oh forgot about bikes. Is it easier to get to a higher speed on a bike than car?

I would say that on average, fast bikes don't reach the speeds that fast cars do, but they reach 150+ quickly.

I'll post since no one else is at the moment.

120 mph in a Hyundai Sante Fe on a NM secluded road.
Probably closer to 110 with speedometer calibration. Also, it's a Hyundai.

The fuel cut-off kicked in on my Toyota Pickup at 105 mph. More likely it was 95 mph. I know my speedo is off.

Maybe 70 mph on a Donzi.

Whatever the cruising speed is on a Boeing 737-300/700/800 series. 0.8 Mach 1 ?

RIP your license.

I'm not confessing to any crimes I may or may not have committed here such as exceeding the posted speed limits by triple digits.

Years ago, I got my 1997 Z-28 Camaro up to around 135 or 140 mph with the top down on a long and straight country road back east. I like to drive fast, but I rarely hit triple digits and never gotten another car up that fast.

So is like 140 a comfortable bragging speed? I am no daredevil, but some of these folks seem to think anything triple digits is like xxx

The durango is factory limited to 120.
My tires are 9.5% larger than factory.

You can do the math.

Don't forget to account for speedometer inaccuracy

Wouldn't that be like the 131.4? His speedo says 120 but tires are 9.5% bigger so 131.4?

Your math is correct, but I'm not sure if his SUV's ECU cuts off the fun at a true 120 or indicated. Probably true, at least based on the wheel speed.
