Buell XB12R Firebolt Drag Race

My Buell XB12R Firebolt at the local Drag Club. *Unfortunately a bit out of focus*. Best time to date down the 1/8th mile is 7.60s. Typically I run 7.70-7.75s all day long with 1.8s 60' times. This run wasn't particually good and from memory it was a 7.9s pass. Launch bike at ~3000rpm. Trap speed typically 90-91mph and my experience to date seems to strongly indicate that the Buell is very sensitive to Air temperature changes. At the end of the day it's a pretty fun and easy bike to drag race. Bike: 2006 Buell XB12r Firebolt, Remus pipes, Race ECU

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.
