Turbocharged Triumph Rocket III 0-150 MPH and more
Wanted to try out the GoPro on my Rocket before rebuilding the engine. There is a compression problem causing excessive blow by and crank case pressure. Not sure how much power is being robbed. AFR is also off but this thing still moves! When it's rebuilt I'll do another video where I'm actually trying to get the best possible 0-60 and 0-100 times. Didn't do that here but can tell by watching this that mid to high 2 second 0-60 and mid to high 5 second 0-100 times will be achievable. Not bad for an 800lb cruiser! Note: since the camera is looking up at the speedo the speed is really a good 5 mph faster past about 80 or 90 mph. What looks like 100 is 105, 145 is 150 etc. etc. And unlike most YouTube vids you'll see of people doing this my speedo is GPS calibrated, not 5 to 8% fast as all motorcycle speedos are from the factory making the bike seem quicker than it really is. This is my first YouTube video and first edited GoPro video just done with Movie Maker so nothing fancy. Would like to eventually sync two or three cameras and do multiple angle or PIP shots and some really nice editing. And no, I don't ride like this all the time, especially if any cars are around, but with a GoPro stuck on the gas tank that was kind of the point.
