Drag strip, DL1000A

Not sure how much more torture I would want to subject this bike to but very fun!

My best time ever at the drag strip was on my 2006 GSX-R 750. I hit the 1/4 in 10.46 seconds and won against the ZX-14R. Clearly he had a caca rider because he should have smoked me!

The ET is great but hitting only 65 MPH is sort of slow! Oui?

It's not all about speed you know!

Yep, mph, I did a check and it seems the V2 is good for 11.6sec at 112mph.
I guess that is with a pro rider caning it to the edge!
Anyway, I had fun and beat all my Harley mates as well. Yay!

I like to hit the strip every couple years. My old K6 1000 has been modified a little and last time out turned a 12.05. I've never made it under 12, though I guess the pros were able to get the older ones in the high 11s. I'm not that heavy either at 165 pounds. My leathers weigh about 20 pounds, though. $100 used on eBay. Could be elephant hide:-).

That 750 really hauled the bacon!
