That was my buddy riding it.

He did not want to leave the CBR1000 with the camera behind.



Bring yours on down and we'll go for a ride.

I'd like to see my friend out there with his RS125 Honda. He could put the shame on most of the liter bikes with it.

A mate of mine has two which he races. I would love to see (& hear) that too. Little rockets.

They're almost unbeatable on a tight course like the Dragon. The rider has to be lightweight as well.

Do you think the twin turbos increase performance or just maintain it?

I'd like to see him run it up to redline and dump the clutch. The bike would probably rotate around the rear wheels and smoosh his pin head into the asphalt.

Maybe that's the reason for the pillion - keep some more weight forward of the point of rotation
