well, you are VERY wrong about the fact that a stock liter bike would take them all in the end. There are a lot of cars that will go over 190 these days. Your GSXR WONT do an honest 190.

What is your 1/4 mile time anyway?

Well, I'm not always going to want the extra power (obviousy), being that the bike has plenty of power stock. Not the mention the cost of turbo...

Please name 1 non-exotic AWD car that can do over 190, and I stand corrected.

yeah, I just like machines really. Anything from old caddys on 26s to quick cars, some tuners, cruizers, choppers, and those old-old classics. I dont stereotype, I just like what looks good, and somewhat sticks out.

I just don't like minivans, suburbans, tahoe's, and the lifted trucks that all look the same. Half of them sag in the rear. I know nothing of them, so I really couldnt comment, but , is that supposed to be like that?

Anything that someone put some time and thought into really.

I'll give him a call at a decent time.


This is more of a chat room than a thread.

well now you put conditions on it. "non-exotic AWD" you didn't say that originally.

AWD cars are not necessarily faster off the line. In the wet yes, in the dry, not always.

OEM clutches are often not up to the task of a hard launch in an AWD car.

There are a lot of regular cars that can easily be modded to go 190. But you are a smart guy and already know this.

I'm also confident you are really up to the task of operating a 200 hp bike at full throttle.

Thanks for raising my insurance. No, not yet, but you will.
