    So i finally got to take the er6 for a little speeding legally at WSID last night.. and WOW, there was soo many bikes i never seen that many race before :eek: Roughly 40-50 easy...

    Any Netriders racing??

    I got 3 runs in, 13.1 first time ever, i dropped te clutch and poped up the front, second run 13.1 (first video) riding out the clutch, and then 12.9 @ 100mph (2nd and 3rd video) with a bit of riding and poping it out and my little burnout before... The bike is standard and she wont go any faster captain :LOL:
    See the videos for youself, she picks up speed quickly in 1st and 2nd but top end takes alot off, i stayed on for a bit after the finish line just to see what speed i can get.. This was my first time racing ever, and next time will be on the R6 or next bike :grin:


    On board 13.1

  3. Jamie Benzienna (check spelling) The guy that rides the orange turbo hayabusa built by S&R Pro.. He's the racer who has black/orange suit and tiger ears on his helmet haha.

    Yeah i had fun thrashing it.. Weather was clear and wasnt cold at all.

  6. I love that there are people in this world who look at a 'Busa and think "that's not fast enough... wonder what would happen if we bolted a turbo onto it...?"

  7. TOP WORK Tim, lovely to see you kept it buried in the red zone :applause:

    I guess we can answer any questions now about the Kawa's top speed; if 170 is about the best it can do under ideal conditions, any claims to more must be suspect, eh :LOL:?

  8. It would go faster, with a longer straight.

  9. I hit 184km/h in that first video there.. I've seen er6's top speed on youtube is 220.. Thats it, so its geared relatively short.

    That hayabusa is a machine, on that run i ran the 12.9, and he ran 12.0.. He must of set off the timer before he took off cause they still past me just before the line... I went across at 160ish, he did it at 230km/h :eek:
    It is a 9second bike anyways..
