How to brake on a motorcycle
It is much more involved than you'd think at first.
Do it wrong, and it will hurt you.
Battery died at the end, but I managed to do some quick thinking and save
GoPro HD Hero Chesty Mount - Buell Blast Test
Attempt numero dos. It looks a little bit better. I think this is the best
I'll be able to get it using the Chesty mount. Also, the GoPro sucks at
giving you a sense of speed/distance - note to future buyers.

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!
