Most hated Dragbike crash and aftermath video on You-Tube
Accident during testing at Brotherhood Raceway, Terminal Island, Long
beach, California. 1994
Luckily no one was seriously injured in the accident, because of the track
configuration and only having one camera at the starting there is no actual
footage of the wreck, however the coverage of the aftermath is something
that is almost never seen.
The moral of the story is to always pay attention to the race surface where
you are at, if it is unsafe DO NOT do it and always wear your protective
gear, helmet, gloves, leathers.
"Black Sunshine" was repaired and has a happy home in Utah.

run the bike pulled to the right, and I had to let off for a second. Best
run so far, 9.68 @ 132 mph in the quarter. Clutching is still a long way

Best Bike Suzuki produced in the 80s - 1982 GS1100E
Seen on mcreports.com:
" In 1982 the GS1100E was liberated from its role of all-around motorcycle.
Admittedly it was an awesome machine, and king of the dragstrip, but it was
happy in many roles. With the introduction of the GS1100G, the 'E' model
could really let loose and go for gold. The engine was breathed on and the
styling changed to be reminiscent of the early-80's Katana's, combining
spedd with function and styling. Power in 1982 was 108bhp@8500rpm, with
torque of 67.6@6500. Wet weight was 549lb's. "
