not worth the 25 bucks i paid to get in. at least they had a portable dyno set up for 20 bucks. my 06 victory 8 ball made 90 RWHP. the T&A was nice as expected. only 4 bikes paid the 20 bucks for a dyno pull. it was 99 % hd. if you had ape hangers or fish tail exhaust you were a big hit. most HD riders would rather get 3 beers for 20 bucks than find out that bad ass HD they spent 30,000 on makes 70 RWHP.
a race engine turbo suzuki busa made 469 RWHP. saw the print out. he said it makes over 500 other times.

Sounds like John Noonan, who has gone 260-mph-plus at Bonneville.

Too bad this year's show wasn't great. I wish they continued having supermoto races.

Glad to hear you got a whopping 90 hp. Be careful with that.

From the look of those cops all you'd have to do to avoid arrest is to drop a doughnut on the ground and walk briskly away.

That Shinya guy does some pretty cool stuff with metal. One of the print mags ran a story on him a while back; his bikes were really amazing.

yes only 90 HP but with that 90 HP i have turned 12.23 et at 108 mph at the drag strip. my buddy had a suzuki M 109 with a pipe and dyno tune .he was no faster than my lowly victory.most street air cooled Hds are lucky to get out of the 13s. so aginst my peers my 8 ball does pretty good .

Actually, I did not know who he was or his celebrity customer when I saw the two bikes he had on display -- one covered in dust, apparently from a desert ride, or some such. My eye was naturally drawn to them, especially the Ducati. I took some pics, and came back for more later. Some pretty neat design work. Very artistic, and I told him I thought so.
