Buell Firebolt Drag Race (vs. R6)

Me on my 2004 Buell XB12R for the first time at the drags... Well, first time on a bike at the drags in general! Overall, very happy with my results; I was expecting a 12.20 best. The dragway is 90ft above sea level, and it was about 90+ degrees. Gonna put down some good times this fall! PS, the R6 rider was on his first 2 races at the track, so I'm sure the bike's good for better times... Though maybe not better than mine :-) Made 3 passes: 12.18 @ 111mph 12.01 @ 113mph 11.87 @ 114mph The bike's basically stock, with the exception of a K&N air filter, Jardine Exhaust, XB9R headers, and an ECMSpy tune I did myself. 635 lbs with me on it (I weigh 195 with gear). PS: Sorry about the blurry 2nd run, my girlfriend wasn't very used to my camera. Still better than nothing!

Here's my -98 Buell S1 Lightning on a mobile Dyno. A famous finnish drag racer Tuoppi is pulling a 110 rear wheel horsepower pass. That combined with over 130 Nm (95 ft.lbs) of torque makes this a hell of a bike to ride!
