Don't see any background to the race or riders.



Anecdotal and undependable in this case.



Keep trying.

I just find it weird that drag strips are designed and themed like public roads these days. Seems impractical...

Totally weird why they do that indeed.

Totally legit justification for criminal endangerment.

"But officer, we don't have the money, support, and interest to do this legally without unnecessarily endangering people involuntarily."

"Oh, okay, well then carry on."

I am guessing you equate masculinity and toughness with right wrist input?

Saw the thread title and got excited that you might be building a lightweight Katana.

Maybe one day. Right now its full stock heavy weight. I imagine would need GSXR stuff swapped in order to accept BSTs. Would realistically probably only make sense if I was going to shoehorn an 1100/1200 motor in.



Weight of a zx12
Power of a piped Ninja 500 on MR12

She has a hard time getting to 130 on GPS.


No ram air.
Decent-ish aero.


Just a bike that keeps me outta trouble.


Runs about even with a buddy's tuned K7. If he's in 6th and I'm in 2nd we're pretty close.
