Where's slowpoke? HaHaHaHa

  1. damn cant watch it at work, whats it about?
  2. Rocket III vs a GSX1000.

    Slowpoke needs to learn how to use the throttle and change out of first gear on the Rocket. He couldn't be that far behind over a half mile!!
  3. I'd love to know who asked for the 1/2 mile length in the wager; As the drag race distance increases it becomes less about launching technique, power-to-weight ratio and area-under-the-power-curve and more about whoever has the most top-end power as an absolute, and the GSXR has top-end power in spades. The Rocket III's party piece is sheer area-under-the-curve Power Everywhere In The Rev Range(tm), which ought to give it pretty good acceleration early on.

    My gut feel is that it'd be veeeeeeeeeeeeery interesting to see a 1/8th mile race between a Rocket III and a sportsbike. The results would be a lot closer.
  4. I'd like to have seen an actual RACE, because we see nothing in this, just the other rider bailing out.

    Couple of years ago there was a good one posted (same bikes). Quarter mile drag, the Rocket had the lead until the Zuki got him right on the line.
  5. Yeah, that's true. XD A fly-by 800 metres from the starting point is a bit uninteresting in w.r.t technique/skill/timing. It only shows the result.
  6. It doesn't stop it being funny though.
