There is a road straight enough to go that fast in Costa Rica?

yes they are

that was from Liberia to Cañas Guanacaste

and also there are some in Quepos those that I know of

of course I wish I were in USA....if so I would have another bike to hit more speed the scrambler would not be enough

Today I managed to achieve really high speed - 194 kph (around 120.5 mph). Of course this is a GPS, not the speedometer measurement (check the attachment). I am very surprised Scrambler can do it, I wouldn't believe it before.

Motorbike's setup:
- Zard low mounted slip-on, with dB killers and catalytic converter
- BoosterPlug

Weather and road conditions:
- 10 °C
- Not windy
- Flat road

According to my calculations, in order to achieve this speed, engine's RPM needs to be equal to 8550. Standard Scrambler has a peak power at 8250 RPM. Perhaps the exhaust and the BoosterPlug shifted the peak power a bit higher :p This is the only one explanation I can see for now.
Any thought?
