800m drag racing!
A couple of us hired some guys from up country with their drag and timing equipment, and invited every single bike we could find to our own drags!
We found a 2km straight a couple of km's out of town and arranged with the local authorities to block off the road for the Sunday!
Don't know how many bikes we had there, but it was quite a show for our small town! From what I remember
3 `04 R1's
4 `04 gixxer's
2 `04 Blades
1 ZX10-R (mine)
and a bunch of older bikes. zx-9's, gsxr750's, gsxr1000's, gsxr1100's, tl's and so on.
The trap was setup at 800m with bikes running in pairs for top speed!
Top three ended as follow:
03 Busa, 16T front sprocket with Blue Flame Bolt-on's - 237km/h
02 ZX-12R, Full Akrapovic exhaust system - 238km/h
04 ZX-10R, Stock! - 242km/h
