Thanks.Had my first HOLY shit this morning.Turning on to the expressway leaned over coming out of the turn I thought I would feel some of the power,rolled into the throttle front end drove right up while still partially leaned over,held throttle angle there till I caught up to the power,pinned it then started shifting.WOOW,these thing is crazy,stupid fast.Anyone who says it need to be faster(other than real racing)is crazy.Just so you know I am not new to real horsepower,just new to motorcyle power.I have driven and raced in NMCA and NMRA for better than 10 years.So 8 and 7 second power is not new.This is a whole new perspective on power to weight ratio.
