i'd say trackdays are the thing for us, the brits seem to have an obsession with sports bikes, totally different in mainland europe

i got a time of 10.9 1/4 mile, couldnt stop wheelying tho during my runs so i probably lost a second due to the drag factor
,
i was clocked this time at BRIZE NORTON bike event, 1/4 miles and top speed runs down the runway, i hit my top speed of 187 with it bouncing off the rev limiter, not bad for a 750

What mods have you done to your 750 to get 187 mph!

Nice work on the ET. I'm taking my bike to WSID this Wednesday hoping to do a low 10 on my K4 thou. Best I could muster on my old bike ( 95 CBR900RR) was a [email protected]/h.

My mate has done a 10.2 on his b-king so the heat is on.

I don't agree with letting the tyre down unless you are experiencing wheel spin on the launch(maybe I'm just lazy....). With a decent burnout to warm the tyre you should be right, i've never had any trouble getting away having to worrying about wheel spin off the line.

Hes probably talking about Kilometers, not miles per hour....but if he is, something is terribly wrong!
