i really havent had any overwhelming urge to drag race it no. it would be interesting to try i guess.

the thing is too, in 4 or 5 years of riding, ive never once launched my bike with any sort of exertion. i do tons of 1st gear roll ons and stuff, but never really launched from a stop.

when i first bought my r1 it needed a new clutch so i practiced launching a fair bit with it before i replaced it

its a different world on 2 wheels. and unless you know the 1 wheel feeling it can be pretty gut wrenching.

i am by no means a wheelie guy, i could never do them, only on the track in spokane over the crest and dip after you take the first left hander after the straight.

i am just thankful my launches didnt turn into a drifting burn out fest... ive see high sides at low speeds with an attempted launch.

anyways... why am i talking, i dont have a bike anymore

ps: to stay on topic i got a ladder rack put on my van and winter tires.

quick 2 cents on launching a sportbike... i didnt try too much on my R6.. but on the Honda i ran a bunch of times at the local 1/8th... u either had not enough traction. or the front end was up through 1st.... ended up having everythign to do with clutch controle.. and body positioning..

Mod of a couple days ago, re-wired my HID's with a relay direct to battery power, they seem to light up more often in cold weather now, but still cause aggrivation when it's any more than -5. Oh and threw in a front strut tower bar that I scored for free.

Bolted in my seats properly...cut off two of the mounts and had a buddy re-weld them in different spots, then bolted her down nice and snug with my freshly cut 2" washers that I cut from a sheet of 1/4" steel...

Tomorrow I pull steering knuckles/hubs/axles from my parts truck and hopefully monday I put them into my truck and get it passed inspection
