I can't believe that guy was running the bags on the track!  I'd think those would have been the first thing off!!  He blew the socks off that ('busa?) bike for sure!  Neat vid!

10.88 the first time out!  Impressive.

A busa would eat the c-14 alive, with that headlight I'm guessing older GSX-R 600

Two very rough clips thrown together from my first night of drag racing. Uploaded as a test.

First race is against an old GSXR 750, with the hard luggage on my bike. 700 pounds dry vs a sportbike?! No problem!

Second video is of me vs a turbo Hayabusa. I got him on the launch, and you can probably hear how excited I got, but by the end of the track, he had caught up with me.

Had a blast racing for the first time!

I assume the ":P" means you don't believe it either (I know I certainly don't!)  The video is cool, and am I sure he could blow an "old GSXR 750" away, even with the hard bags on.  But that last statement of his makes him lose all credibility.... unless, of course, the 'busa driver was really, really horrible (like I would probably be).

I only liked the videos for the entertainment value...got a kick out of the dude and enjoyed listening to the bike..never looked any deeper than that. I think is was zx14 he burnt in the first race, it's all about the big girl. Fun videos to watch! :)
