Saddle bags, top trunk and even the tank bag off. About 1/4 of a tank of gas and bail money arranged for.

Uhhh, closed track.

You're my hero! Did you use both hands to hold the camera steady?

Dang you bested my picture by 4mph. I guess your close track is longer than mine.

Believe it or not, I was stopped. I'm crazy, but I don't have a death wish. Though, BMW's are rock stable at speed, things happen pretty fast.

Fully loaded, all bags and my fat ass, 145 GPS with more room to spare in the throttle. Just didn't feel the need to go any faster!

Many times I've blipped it up to 110 to 120 though with the bags on and it's rock solid. And I've spent days in that magic 90 to 100 zone. It never feels underpowered I can tell you that.

157 across the Salt Flats on Rte 80 . . . for about 10 miles. (Got a pic somewhere.) Had to properly break-in & test the new final drive I got back in Sparks, NV back at Sierra BMW. All systems "GO!".

Don't know about the GT but hit 155mph indicated on my K1200r.
(might have been a little more there, but it was getting a little windy)
