I have never owned a heavy duty truck that was not speed limited to 95 by the engine defueling. Unless the truck had a aftermarket tuner, Ford Chevy and Dodge.

I've had some kinda fast cars, but always preferred driving a truck. I just never really enjoyed driving a big square box/truck fast, as most were not designed for that purpose. I moved to fast motorcycles, for my rush, when the crotch rockets became popular. I don't think my present truck has ever been over 85 mph. I have to admit though, my present Yami-rocket rarely see speeds over 120 anymore.

My TV has a top speed of 155 mph. I’ve never tried it, but it’s well documented. BMW X5 diesel.

And no, I have no desire to try it.

I have only seen 100 mph twice , once in my fathers 49 Hudson Hornet when I was 5 or 6 years old and next on my 1960 Triumph Bonneville mtcy when I was 16 !
If my wife ain't watchin I occasionally will tow a delivery trailer at 80 , then she reaches over and slaps me !

My Ford F150 with the 3.5 Eco is speed limited to 99 mph. It gets there quick, still pulling hard in 3rd gear.

If I want to play fast, I just jump into my Mustang Bullitt. Its speed limited to 163 mph.

It's a very smooth stable ride at 104. It does not take long to get there either. That was my 11 HO DRW, 15 I think is slightly less. Amazing I was turning only 2,300 RPM with the 3.42's.

Maybe now that I crashed my bike I'll be riding a little slower. Although I couldn't really go very fast even when I wanted to.... it had a hard time maintaining 120 mph.

Crash and Bike are two words that don't go well together!!!
