I went 1.81 on the gsxr 1000. That is stock wheelbase and foot shiftin'. It's the best I could do after about 10 runs.

I might have bought the wrong bike. I just didn't know how I'd feel on a Busa or ZX-14. I figured I take the step up to the 1000 before I made the move to a Busa. I hear the ZX-14 is a good bike to start with if you wanna drag race. I don't think I'm going to go too far with my 1000. Might go with a Busa or 14 next year. Does anyone have a Busa I could ride around for 15 to 20 minutes. You can ride my 1000 with me so you know I'm not doing anything crazy with your bike.

It can be when HRP opens again and you are out there. Do you ride your bike around on the street or do you just trailer it to and from the track? I have Full Coverage ins and if you need a few thousand Cash in hand I can do that too.
