The speedo has a peg so it won't go higher. Then again, you could double the gearing to make this vid, or, more likely, green screen the bacground and use a drill motor.

Did anyone else notice the launch wheelie didn't settle til over 100?

BS. The white lines (lane dividers) are not going by nearly fast enough, and at the end when he passes the turn-around through the median it still says he's going 100. NO way

yes I did......fairly sure the speedo is connected to the front wheel (most bikes are)
so why did it continue to climb MPH in a wheelie?

The speed sensor (tells the bike's computer how fast you're going and hence your speedo) is actually connected to the top or side of the gear box... not the front wheel or the rear. They make a device called a speedo healer (I have one installed on my 1000RR)... It compensates/adjusts your speed if you decide to regear (front or rear sprockets). Although it is designed to correct your speed, you can program that thing to read what ever you want. I could be doing 100mph and I can make it read 50mph or the flip side... make it read 200mph at 100mph. It's a device that attaches to and interupts the speed sensor signal to the computer and hence the speedometer. So you can make these thing read what ever you want...

An accurate radar gun or timed distance is the only true way to ensure the truth... BTW, not saying the video is inaccurate, but there really is no way to tell!
