Default Re: How about more 0-60 and 1/4 mile runs

for regular bikes off the showroom floor. I'd like to see that anyway, for every bike reviewed, whether a Suzuki Habasura (spelling) or a Kawasaki KLR 650. Its just a real interesting bit of information. I'd venture that acceleration is more important than top-end to most riders anyway, in terms of fun-factor.



And it would be interesting to see how your various reviewers compare at the track on the same bike.

The Hayabusa (A falcon in Japan) is the world's fastest bird. Capable of reacing 202MPH in a dive, when swooping down on its prey.



I'm even faster.



Pete's faster Still.

You really are going after Pete. I forget, is it 20lbs per tenth of a second?

How do they know that? Did they put a little birdie speedometer on it?



Maybe it was parallax error.

Default Weighty Issues

10Lbs = 1 horsepower is the ballpark figure my dad used to use when talking about the early days of Superbike racing.



Now I thinks it's often said that 10Lbs - 1/10th of a second in laptime.



Of course it's all BS. because there are way too many variables to ever have one equation be accurate when applied to all situations. I just like to think that people would be calling me Valentino if I weighed 135Lbs
