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.

Buell xb9sx on the drag strip April 2014
First time back on the track after seven years, last time was on four wheels and this time it was two and occasionally one !





Buell xb12s lightning top speed run
Ok so it's not exactly the "top speed" of the bike but giving the conditions it was. On the right stretch of road with a good temp. the bike will break 140. It was 95 degrees out. Filmed with a gopro hero 2 with a sticky mount on the air box.





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!
