By the way, I just glanced through an Aussie bike mag with a 500 rwhp turboed Hyabusa. The guy runs faster times at the drags with it dialled in at 240 rwhp.

To quote him, "I feel safer with the rear wheel spinning than when it hooks up and gets traction". Awesome amount of power and here we are disputing 2 or 3 rwhp. Gotter get me a new perspective on life.

Oh, by the way, his answer when he was asked why he did it and got the 500. "I just got carried away and could not stop myself".

Why do I do things ? Because they can be done. The journey is more interesting than the destination sometimes.

But heck, I am just a boy from down under who never grew up. Seems there are a whole lot more of us down here.

1998 R1100S Yellow is the best (now departed from my life)
