  I've done 115mph with a bike on the roof.  Seemed fine, but I
use the good old fashioned mount where the forkes lock onto the
bar directly.  Much more secure and lower CG than many mounts
where you leave the wheels on.
  140mph is pretty fast though.  I think my Rocket Box would
take flight if it wasnt' loaded down at that speed.  Yikes.
