Trying to get the button to like this more, so far it's not working...

He's worried about flipping the TL on the line. When he gets more confident, he'll clean my clock. Mine seems competitive with the new 1040 model Vees, though I've never done an actuall drag race with one. I can take Super Ts, but I have to say that the Multistrada hauls a**. No contest there.
Won't pretend to know how fast a TL 1000 is, but i've learned a valuable lesson on mine: no assists = wheelie

chirosyd As if I am not already impressed with my Vee2. Just another reason to keep the love coming.

richlandrick Pipe (Full Arrow Race Exhaust), PCFC or PC IV... and a 16 tooth front sprocket! NICE!

Makes it easy to get out of the way of things.

Big B Yup it's no slouch, nor is the 650 to be honest.

SECoda I bet I was close to that with the top case loaded, all of the FARKLES, and DS tires. I am sure they did everything right to get a 3.1 out of multiple runs.

update: I just looked and the Gen 1 1000 got 3.6. The Gen 2 is the 3.1.
