2008 Tourist, 77mph according to my son clocking me on his BMW. I couldn't tell ya, the speedo maxed out at 60.
2017 Retro, 73 mph according to my GPS, though I can't say where that may have been nor was it intentional that I recall.
2017 cT, 100 MPH and we have the video to prove it! :P

All fun and games seeing how quick you can go, if that's what you're into, but don't forget your brakes will have to work harder if you need to knock it back in a hurry. :D

As I've told numerous folks about a Ural, 0-70 mph is possible, 70-0 is much more challenging...

Second day of ownership, 40mph. Then I crashed. :(
I've almost made a full recovery, I'm up to 35mph :clap:
Another month and I should be able to cross the river into Washington. :lol:

80 mph on my 2007 Patrol coming down Snoqualmie pass with a strong tailwind. Barely touching the throttle, there was little sound or apparent wind.

72 mph on my 2018 M70 under normal conditions on the freeway. It had more to give, but saw no reason to push it, and 65 is good enough for everyday use.
