Maybe I will put the 7 inch slick and the wheely bar back on and we all will meet at the track for a nite of fun, with that set up u wont flip it and can launch really hard, U guys would have a ball, but if u do it u might be looking for one the next day, uve been warned

$10 in fuel for one pass near. actually prolly for the day! not too bad. drag bikes don't hold enough fuel to make more than one pass at a time!

sounds like a good time...I was a wus trying to launch the rc...I just didn't want to stand it up and wipe out. I found a streched and struted 94 gsxr1100 for 3000 that I've been thinking real hard about for a dedicated drag bike.

i have no regrets on going back to a 600. my 1000rr was a wheelie monster compared to the 600....but my 600rr takes the corner like no other. i would ride them back to back....and the 600's still gave me enough adrenaline for me to not need the literbike

If the tach is not above 10k then you are not riding a 600 properly.
