    In webers defense, the speedo may have said 226 but that bike could have had even a small gearing change and it would have thrown off the speedo. The higher that speedo climbs the more inaccurate it is anyway.

    thats right according to the busa speedo back in 1999 they used to read up to 220

    now they only read to 185, anyhow when the busa speedo said 220 mph

    according to the radar gun and gps that was only 200mph

    Sorry - I thought I could C&P a photograph

    There is a guy named Olly and he owns the fastest Hayabusa in Scotland (or at least it was a couple of years ago). This is no idle boast because he can show you his light-gate printouts and a large pile of trophies. He can also show you the dyno printout showing slightly over 400 rear wheel horsepower.

    His bike has the biggest supercharger you ever did see fitted to a motorcycle. Olly himself has a PhD in fuel injection and has a job designing electronics for Triumph motorcycles. The bike has an enormous rear tire, runs on some exotic fuel he gets shipped from the US in drums, and has been stretched by a good 12".

    Pertinent to your argument, none of the REALLY fast fast 'busas on the drag scene have been overbored, they all use forced induction and massively high compression ratios. The bike is still a 1300cc.

    Terminals a standing 1/4 mile in the high 170mph range. Also interestingly, he has tried for some top speed runs and has been unable to crack 200mph on it (come damned close though). On paper it has enough power and sufficiently good aerodynamics to touch 250mph but there simply isn't a piece of tarmac long enough to get up there then stop again.

    But you all are routinely doing it, and on other bikes as well. And look; it's not that I don't still love you and all . . . . . but Come On Now! <g>

    I used to ride in '94-'95. CBR 600 F2

    Here's the score from some of my friends:

    2 dead
    1 paralyzed
    1 missing right leg (below knee)
    1 missing calf muscle on right leg
    1 dual compound fractures both arms between wrist and elbow
    5 bad road rash

    and I can't bend the pinky on my right hand.

    I vote: Not worth it!

    i am missing a big chunk of calf muscle also

    had an awsome doctor though

    i displaced my shin bone 360 degrees

    they used something called a hoffmans device on my leg

    the bottom line is no pins were left inside my leg

    made about a 99% recovery from that

    '78 FLH, punched out to 84 ci. Bought it new 30 years ago, and it's been rebuilt four times. Live in Canada, so only eight decent riding months. The speedo quit 22 years ago, so no clue as to how many miles on it. It still runs strong. Foot clutch and tank shifter, 2" drag pipes, but I 'tip-toe' quietly through residential areas. But BOY does that bad dog BARK!

    Used to own a '74 Norton 850 Commando, a '70 Triumph Bonnie, dirt bikes before that.
