2 10s and a Busa

I went out riding last thursday night and stopped at the legion cause I saw a few bikes. There was a green 06 zx10 and an 02 Busa (stretched, dropped, chromed, motor worked, etc.). Turns out the 06 10 was a buddy of mines and he just bought it a few weeks before. He put a leo vince slip on and an air filter, other than that it was stock. We sat there and BS'ed for a hour or so and decided to go ride around. On the interstate we went WOT until about 140-150 from a 60 roll. Surprisingly, none of us could pull on each other... I thought I was going to get left behind but we were all pretty even. We did several runs like this and everytime it was more or less dead even. Here's the only reason I think I was keeping up with them
Me - 185lbs
06 10 - approx. 290lbs
02 busa - approx 240lbs I don't know how hard he was on it but if he was WOT I'm disappointed cause he said it was bored out and claimed it was around 185 whp

All in all I was really impressed with how my 10 performed because I always ride with guys who have 600s and I've never really been around any fast bikes.

i always laugh when people tell me "by switching to titanium you will drop 3-5lbs from your bike". ok, but i'm still gonna weigh 210. if i wanted to drop weight from the bike, the best place to start would be with the rider!!!

If its the bike in your avatar, I don't think a stretched arm is considered stock.


I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.
