I'm wondering how fast an S1000RR or similar will slow down from wind resistance alone at different speeds from just rolling the throttle off.
Typically VERY hard braking can reduce speed by 22mph/sec. I'm thinking that VERY hard braking at very high speeds should yield more deceleration due to wind resistance. To understand that, I'm wondering what the wind resistance alone would do in speed reduction/sec from 30mph, 60mph, 120mh, 180mph, and 210mph.
I'm aware that there are many variables not the least of which are wind, engine braking, gear, rpm, rider position, downhill/uphill, etc.
I became curious after riding the HP4 Race at The Ridge which has a long flat 6th gear straight into a fast sweeping first turn. So easy to over-slow for the corner. Another one very similar is turn 1 at Phillip Island.
