Taking My Buell Lighting Long down the Dragstrip at Meremere

Night Speed Drag Wars, March 23rd 2012. Handlebar mounted GoPro HD camera onboard my Buell XB12Ss Lightning at Meremere Dragstrip, Waikato, New Zealand. My first time down the strip on a bike. Running against a Suzuki SV1000 (Russell), an old Ford V8, and Kawasaki ZX14. Also some footage of Russell taking on an the almighty 50cc scooter.
