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!

Buell XB12R Firebolt - First Blast in a Long While!!! - Gopro Hero 3 Black
Put a brand new set of tyres, Conti-Sports Attack II, on the Buell this morning and had to get it out for a play. Once I take it to some twisty roads it will be a blast and the new tyres make a huge difference over the rubbish that was on it when I brought the bike. Been over a year since I've done any real riding on it. Still Believe that the Buell Firebolt XB12R is the greatest sounding motorcycle ever built.
