Shoulda been there a coupla weeks ago on my mates SV, but he didn't have any money. If ya need any help or advice gimme a shout. You don't need to spend loadsa money on more power, just mod it to go in straight lines without wheelying or spinning up!

Sprinting is all bikes divided into road bikes and race bikes. These are divided into cc groups, like 750 to 1000 and unlimited. They go off sometimes two at a time or one at a time. The object is not necessarily to beat the other guy, just set the fastest ET in your class.
   Drag racing is always one against one. The bike position is controlled by the timing lights, pre stage, staged, amber , green. Reaction times, 60ft, 130 ft times are measured as well as ET and Terminal speed. The object is to launch on or just before the green and be the first to complete the 1/4 mile, so reaction times are important. The competition is usually a knockout or a round robin.
   drag race at SCR, me on the SV1000, Alan on his z1000;

If you fancy having a go on yer roadbike, just turn up at a Run What You Brung event, pay entry fee and RWYB fee and you can do as many runs as you want to queue up for. Can usually race yer mates. If you wanna get serious or avoid doing wheelies, there are a few mods you can do for not a lotta cash. Spending thousands on the engine is not the way to go. My old "Road Legal" GSX1100ET with a stock 998 Katana engine ran 10.37 ET.

I do miss my old ET. Just wish the guy who owns the SV would spend a little bit of cash, we could run a 10.9 this year.
