I'd rather be driving the worlds slowest bike over the worlds fastest car any day.
Well maybe not the slowest, but prefer 2 wheels.

That is easy.

Road racers use the straightaways to relax.

Take all that off and see if Guy Martin will even look at it. Who the 773H wants their "power cut" if the front wheel comes off the ground?

If you need wheelie control, abs, traction control, auto pressure sensing halogen fluid flow control, Power Commander, transverse spivey bearings, 3 stage engine/drive systems (which I have on 2 bikes, BUT DONT NEED JUST TO RIDE) and all that other safety - - - - sell your bike and get back in a cage (as a passenger) where you belong. You have no common sense or the natural talent that should allow you to be riding in the first place.

What happens on that thing if you crest a hill at 150 and your front end comes up and those fkucking wings catch air? Google drag boat crashes or NASCAR. The point of no safe return is long past before you can even think about it.

Its the closest thing I have found to date. Don't get me wrong, it has a pucker factor in its own right and for some reason scarier than the bike ever gave me.


From what I understand, you can only buy the open class style bikes like Hayden rides but not the MM or Pedrosa version. I believe I read those can only be leased and have to be returned at the end of the year. Honda would supply the engines as well. Everything in those things are pretty hush hush.

That's why I say it's not so easy. Swap the bike and GTR driver. I can almost guarantee the bike guy will run a closer time to the GTR driver in the car than the car driver will run to the bike..

But the same applies, you also have to know how to program a 7-second GTR computer. You can't just bolt-on parts and run a 7. Without someone to setup up the launch control, suspension, tune, etc.. you won't go that fast either.

Everything looks so easy now but someone took the time to figure out all the tricks and make it work. They didn't just drive it off the lot and run a 7 (unless you're talking about a stock GTR).

I don't know why people keep saying that, it's not as easy as everyone thinks...it still takes a rider anyway you argue it..

^ knows wtf is up.

Get out there on a big HP bike and lemme laugh at you flip it over.
