    .......and you think you're going fast. Suddenly a bike goes by so quickly, you think you're parked.

    It happened to me several times today. I ran with a couple of Turbo bikes. One ran Maxton a few weeks ago and turned 214 in a standing mile.

    Today his gps read 212.

    It was a stock wheelbase turbo Busa. It would pull the front tire at 110 on power only. Friggin' incredible. Too bad the other bike broke before he could get in a good run.....It had some serious HP.:shocked:

    Pics and video when available.

    At least until the boost kicked in, then you'd have an aircooled twin cyliner grenade.

    Who gives a $#!+? I could work on a Craftsman lawnmower, if ya knew what you were doing. Now if you had a 4-cyl.... If you want to make power, start with something that already makes power.

    I race with a few friends that have turbo bikes. I'm completely sold. Easier to ride than a bigbore N/A bike, without the maintenance. Hell, 1 of 'em run 8s in the 1/4, then rides it home. And there isn't a twin in the world that sounds as good a turbo with a TIAL blow-off and open exhaust and dump pipe. wwwooOOOSSHAAAAA

    That's true, but there's no style in that.:hearts:
