Was that you bun?anyway well done you're keeping the colours flying mate!the guy on the S1000R calling the starts went every time early!doesnt matter you still won even with his jump!I had a feeling once he jumped and was in front and you started making ground he would back off!is the guy on the R1 just getting his head around his bike?

I watched a lot of gen4 v S1000R races and most gen4 get the win even when they are both topped out and start gradually walking away!what I'm a little bit confused about is the S1 usuallly have 5-10hp more on a dyno!I get different gearing for off the mark but Kwak always gives a good account with seasoned riders!any thoughts

Yeah that was me, I've been doing a little fine tuning on the dyno and putting it to use. I think the reason he was jumping out is a gearing thing. We agreed to do a 2nd gear start and the start speed was a little low for my bike. I could have went to 1st but I kept it in 2nd to be fair. It didn't really matter because the ZX10 would close the gap every time.

Looks like the Beemer and 10 are pretty even match, most has to do with who got the jump. 10 does seem to pull away a bit, love that gen 4, cool video. Remember in racing closely matched machines its 90% rider 10% bike. You guys stay safe and gear up, God Bless.

I can count the vids on YT with one hand where a gen 4/5 takes down a BMW (2nd gen mostly), good pulls
I might be two of the other ones too, lol. To be fair, the one in the drag strip video would pull me from a roll. His was some sort of factory freak because it was much faster than the others and it only had an Akrapovic exhaust and Brentune flash.

Yeah the other guys weren't but I had a leather jacket, gloves and helmet.
Yeah, I like to have something bit thicker on myself for when bugs and birds strike like in Wild Hogs ))

Ben down on my right knee 3 times when I was first road riding and decided that leaving skin on the road was not for me. All 3 times were low speed but still hurts.
