Speedo and Odometer check vs GPS

Strapped the Garmin GPS to the bars:

Running 190/50 section back tyre

ODO is 3.2% over; Speedo is 6.5% over. Set my speedo healer to 6.5%

Yep!
Mine too. 6% as well. I've not done anything about it other than work out in my head what speed I can get away with when in the "Average speed zones"

Pretty much identical to mine. My Garmin at 100 km/hr shows 107-108 km/hr on the speedo with a 55 profile rear tyre.
