Default I went from low 13's to low 11's the easy way.

Yesterday was my birthday and my sisters boyfriend offered to take me to the track with his 2 bikes a Honda 650 nighthawk (cams) and a Honda 919 (stock). We are both drag racing addicted so we both made a bunch of passes, My best was 12.6 with the nighthawk and a 11.1 at 124 with the 919. Not bad for me getting my bike permit a month ago and this being the second time I have ever ridden a road bike. Lol I have been riding dirt bikes all my life though so I guess that doesn’t make it as crazy. I'll tell you what I love dragging bikes, its a completely different atmosphere everyone is so much nicer, cool, funny, plus the bikes are way quicker, probibly because everyone is crazy. Sometimes I think about stopping modding my car and just buying a bike. Best with my car is 13.2 at 107 with a 2.1 60ft. Made 10 passes with the 919 and 2 or 3 with the nighthawk. All in all It was a great 18th birthday. Next week we are shooting for 10's with just some sprokets.

Jditlfm you are right about racing bikes from cars. I love racing my cars. I go from running high 12.Xs to mid 13.Xs depending on what I am messing around with on the Z28 to my high 8.X's on the 'busa. I would only have to say have fun on both.

as far as my mods on the busa... shes lowered 1.5 inches in the rear, 4mm in ther front (kinda a free mod for the busa without having to buy anything), 45 shot (only used at the strip), and PCIII which isnt on yet.... maybe this weekend, and I also have the normal appearance mods frame sliders, tank pad, etc.
This are his mods copied from a different post. Who knows he could have more more nitrous and such but who knows. Also his PCIII is probaly on.
