it goes 78 mph, 08 busa's i think are nice, yes i still have the drag bike, we just did nitrous jet flow testing
yesterday to get the nitrous jets pointed the perfect angle, motor should be fully assembled by next week
the record in the guiness book is for a 2000 busa (the last unrestricted year)
go to west palm beach fl. for a weekend, on sunday mornings they always top out at
pratt& whittney blvd. about 7:00 in the morning, the road is about 4 miles long its flat and no traffic
we use gps's and someone usually brings a police radar gun out there
they still go out there my buddy lives close to there, i havn't been there for about 3 years
thats a sweet bike
unless he just wants to get the mac daddy busa
the tl 1000 is great for wheelies, if you want to litteraly wheelie for miles the tl 1000 is your bike
but if i had to choose between the tl and a gsxr 750, i would get the tl, i like to wheelie:)
Jeeze..........[I] feel like I'm in some younger generation with all the out of town bikes.
1st I pick Airmechanical for largest huevos on site!!!!
I ride an 81 HD Sturgis eddition shovel. My wife rode a 84 Ironhead, droped the tranny and went out and bought a 03 1200. Sweet bike.
i'm way beyond fast but I ride every chance.
About loud pipes... There is even in the HD community to tone it down. We'll see.
Loud Pipes Save Lives !!!!!
"If I bought a motorcycle I would likely find myself without a spouse."
I'd buy two bikes - just to be on the safe side. <g>
Well, except for This summer. <g> I tend not to ride much in the summer heat anyway. I ride most when it is below 75 degrees out. And then all winter as long as there is no snow.
Somewhere I have a picture of my son and I (he was about nine then) pushing one of my GL-1000's out of a snow drift. We had set out that morning and it was 21 degrees. I had the full top on the sidecar for him. By the time we got home again that afternoon it was up to 34. <g>
It's funny seeing you guys talk about buying big bikes because you wouldn't be happy with a smaller bike.
My first street motorcycle was 1300 cc's. A 1939. I bought it in 1970. And I have been buying smaller bikes ever since. <g>
Last year I bought a 50 cc Tomos (although now it has a 72 cc kit and pipe and big carb on it <g>) and I have a 175 Honda coming along nicely.
My Bonneville is 790 cc's and right now I ride it the most but I've had the most fun on bikes in the 400 to 500 cc range.
Even my dirt bikes are 175 to 250 cc.
I keep eyeing those 250 Ninjas too. <g>
I would have to win the lotto and say to the wife when she got home "Guess what I bought today?" Nothing too gonzo - maybe a CB750F. A friend at work has 05 Road King that looks really nice...
RKings are great bikes.. here's my 06
I have two bikes. A 2002 Suzuki Bandit 1200 the naked version. A great do it all bike for a bargain price. It is very comfortable and very fast. It handles better then it has a right to for what it is.
I also have a 2005 Buell XB12R Firebolt. The Buell isnít as comfortable nor does it have the power of the Bandit. The handling of the Firebolt is simply incredible! On a twisty mountain road there is nothing that I would rather ride then my Firebolt. Being that I live about 25 minutes from the Tail of the Dragon the Buell gets ridden the most.
