Still agree it is insane, but a lot of that vid is sped up.
If that was in Humboldt county... he'd likely have $20K of weed under that tarp.
Looks to me like he has a weird thing about insect poop.
Here's someone who has never experienced a Ducati liter+ bike. They are short stroke and oversquare and have a flat torque curve that'll make your eyes water.
Stone Age Man with stone age motor ideas.
The engine to which he refers makes very little torque at all, given its displacement, just has huge flywheels.
Imagine a 2000 cc Multistrada motor.:huh
That is even more nuts than the Busa rig. Anybody <strike>nuts</strike> cool enough to build and/or ride this is simply awesome. Thanks for the link. That made my day.
As in crying? Have a good look at the 1098/1198 torque curves. Nothing flat about it. Don't get me wrong, a big fat hump in the torque curve makes for lots giggles, but that dip around 5k rpm has always bothered me.
Have a look at a speed triple. That is a flat curve.
You're looking at stock emissions regulated data. That goes away with a bit of tuning.
Perhaps, but he still gets a fail for a WAY too early apex.
yep, that takes care of all discussions about his riding.
yep. you dont get away with that for ever.
Thanks for clearing that up for us.
Did you dig enough to find the videos of it? :tb:tb
Gotta love the ones that folks find worthy of tossing on their own hard drive.
So was it 2 or 3 seconds after the photo when he ran into the sissy bar?
I know the rider, he's alive and well. And being the safety minded individual that he is ,showed us all that dragging a knee on the Dragon doesn't require breaking the 30mph speed limit. Worthless yes but after all what is the Gap for but mugging to the photographers.
bad ass !
Yeah that is super cool riding in a straight line through traffic like an asshole. Very impressive.
Met a guy in a campground in the NC mountains, that's exactly the way he packed his tent. He left everything in it and rolled it up. He did spent a little more time making it a little tighter wrap. Really, when you are camping day after day it makes a lot of sense. throw it on the ground and add poles... your done!
