A de-restricted 'Busa was taken to 192and cha-ching by CycleWorld the year it was introduced (or mebbe the year after - mem'ry here). Without a bit of help, it just can't quite crack that 200mph barrier.



Are you referring to Nitrous Oxide for the other one? Saying something's on "Nitro" refers to the engine being modified to run on Nitromethane - as in "NHRA Top Fuel Dragster", or the IHRA "Outlaw" category of Moto racing.



Nitrous is the generic term (or you can call it "Nawz" [NOS] if you're one O' dem "Fast and fRidiculous" Riceboy Racer-wannabes with a Honda Civic loaded-down with Acura body parts).

I'm sure that whatever might change this coming Tuesday; that things will only remain the same.



Red State. Blue State.



It's all Four-Asterisk'n Purple, Dude.

Yeah, it does sound a bit like I'm off my rocker, now that I've stepped-back for a moment.



After all; we are talking about people here.



Sorry, I'll have myself Lobotomised and that Voice of Reason(tm) eliminated Right Away!

Every year they have a story on the motorcycles in North Georgia. It is a problem but it is not as bad as they make it seem. In three years of riding the loop almost every weekend that the weather permitted I have only seen two wrecks and very rarely did I run into a bike doing anything overtly illegal. The last guy that I saw doing anything really stupid got pulled over shortly after passing me. I have heard stories but it does appear that the problem is caused by a very small yet visable minority. I just wish they would not just focus on sportbikes, the motorcyclists that park their but inside of any bar in the metro area for five hours on a saturday afternoon and then go for a ride are an equally dangerous and sensational problem. However we should try to police ourselves better, there are enough people moving up to n. ga with enough money to cause serious problems for riders in the area. I put my stock exhaust back on my nighthawk for just this reason. I started feeling bad about going past the churches on Wolf Pen Gap Rd on sunday mornings. Its a creepy road when you think someone just damned you to hell.

Oh the madness, Oh the humanity, Oh, Oh, Oh.

If you really want to see some crap take place, wait outside of a bar on a Sunday afternoon, and give all of the cruiser and chopper bike riders a breathalizer test!

150 MPH? Try 40 MPH after 12 beers.

And never mind the twisties, at that point even the cornfields are deadly.

I ride around North Georgia a lot, have for a couple of decades now. Nothing has really changed. The roads determine the speed one rides. Nothing rides WFO. Know some one who claims they do, they lie. And yes, thar be idiots in them thar hills. Sorry, most on sport bikes, yes there are idiots on all sorts of bikes, but the biggest appear to be on sport bikes, and bicycles. Ride stupidy, crash stupendously. I like to ride my big a$$ sidecar rig in the area just to be in the way!



Saying all of that, it was on a Fox station, did you really expect fair and balanced coverage? And you know the real jist of the story, they love us and our money, but truly wish we would reason we are up there, the bikes, at home!

Not knowing what you dont know can get you crippled or kilt. Something a fireman/rescue squad guy told me once had a beneficial effect: they sometimes find motorcyle riders heads off in the bushes or up in the trees a little ways because the shearing forces in high speed accidents are too great for the neck and vertebraes to take.

I saw a guy a carry a 12 pack out of a convenience store one morning and sidle up into into the cab of his 18 wheel big rig. The public ought to be more hysterical about sharing the road with those fools than some irresponsible motorcylists who most likely will kill only themselves, not a couple van loads of families.
