    Use to have three bikes, two cars and the house with Allstate. Busa was always liability only, due the cost. Moved, got a quote from State Farm, Busa same rate as my Harley, fraction of the cost. Gave Allstate the oppty to match, they said no, so I moved everyting to State Farm.

    Richy, That touring setup is gorgeous. For the price I am paying on the bike (Well Below Blue Book) I am getting All the original parts/exhaust. A set of Stands, Stock screen, Hump, Passenger seat, and all the factory manuals and papers with a full history on the maintenance and all the services and tech services that have been done (Including the CCT updates)

    I mounted it using rubber coated clamps. Once I figured where it was gonna sit, I put the bike on my rear stand and started whacking the front of it off to clear the exhaust. It took a few times of on/off to get it, then another bolt through the stand itself and of was done.

    and gear change was a 10.1 at 131lbs. I'm 250 suited up, so a lighter guy would be running 9's. My gear change should put me there opening day :D

    This bike is owned by my brother. I sponsor the riders. We have 2 that race it regularly. Another filled in when one got hurt. SHE went on to win the track championship at Gateway's Outlaw Allstar series this year in the 9.50 class. The other guy runnered up in the points in the Pro Bike series. He won the NHRA King of the Track last year and Runnered up this year.

    It's basically stock motor. No nos or other power adders. It's been lowered in the front with a strap. We run a Shinko drag radial air shifter and auto shift. Janie won't use the auto shift she prefers to watch the tach. It'll run 9.30's with janie on it. The guys can run 9.50 but it's more consistant around 9.70-9.80.

    The first pic is My brother and Denny the bracket racer. The 2nd is Jaine, the woman that won the championship. The 3rd is Dusty. He jurt his back and couldn't finish the season.
