The glory days

This may be a stupid question...
Since we often see modern MotoGP and WSB bikes eclipsing 200mph, how fast were the bikes hitting 10-15 years ago on comparable tracks? It just made me wonder how speeds/lap times compared from the RC's golden days to modern times.

I find this interesting as well. I'm sure someone has a cooler example than qualifying times:

Laguna Seca 2002
WSBK - Colin EDWARDS - 1:24.888

Laguna Seca 2013
MotoGP - Stefan Bradl - 1:21.176
