Nobody wants to race me on the 10R, except other literbikes.
I had a guy smoke me bad on my 98 Speed Triple, though. That bike had about 100 hp and topped out at about 153. No fairings.
My buddy on his GSXR 600 was getting ready to race some redneck in a blown and sprayed something or other. It looked like an old Chevy II. I knew my bike was slower than that Gixxer so I wanted my turn first. I blew in between them in third and ran it up to redline in third, fourth, and fifth. Just after I had shifted to sixth I look over and that car is dead even with me. He hits the spray and blows the back tires loose doing over 140, no joke. Pulled in front and I just shut it down.
My buddy came up behind me on the Gixxer, I shook my head like "I don't have nothing for him" and let them two race. The 600 beat him easy. Daniel just took it to 165 and the other guy couldn't catch him.
So where is that car at now that I've got the 10R? I wish I knew.
Proper lubrication is the solution to 90% of life's problems.
