Lol depends on the rider. Cut a light and look. If they’re wheel up you got em hahahaha. The only gsxr1000 I know runs 10.30s all night. Wins a lot of races but there’s a handful on here that could take him heads up!

Most that we race against have enough in the bag to blow their light, bake a cake and still pass you at 150mph.

If you are at street night with a bunch of jabronis yea sure I beat many heads up too but when you are competing against bikes that run as low as 8.50s in a no bar class... just saying.

Lol well yeah there’s no chance there haha. We have a few grudge bikes that go out. Only hope is sling a chain or blow the tire off.

I’m with you on that. The metrics here are bad fast too. All of my YouTube vids against metrics are jabronis Hahahaha !

I’ve raced heads up on and off in my 4 state area. All fun, if you wanna race heads up all Harley then it’s AMRA. Then it’s talent, checkbook and when do you stop. Nothing wrong with index and et racing!!!!!

O ya, Merry Christmas 🎄 my racing friends!!

I hope my comments weren't taken out of context, I said I prefer heads up that's all, we now have only 1 full time strip here in the Uk and there are not many other Buells or Harley to run against, I just try to get out of the hole before the other guy, sometimes I win.......sometimes not, but hey that's racing right.?
