Visionary: You have calculated that 100mph can be achieved with 11.5hp and you believe your aircooled Honda is up to the job. Who am I to discourage you? I wish you could ride with us from Las Vegas to Barstow next month so we could see if your numbers and heat dissipation works in real USA riding.

I am not even sure that my 17 hp Helix will be able to stay with the traffic. The hills are long. The traffic is in a hurry to get home to Los Angeles and not afraid to drive beyond the posted speed limit. It could be 100 degrees. The winds might be awful.

But it represents REAL conditions. This is why I consider this to be a Test Ride.
