Can you really tell the 30 mph difference from the trees when you are already at that speed????

Brizz I was on my R1 when a ass on a ZX-14 passed me on the right..really torqued me off.

Stunt4Life It takes 180hp to make a busa go 200mph. Sport rider did a wind tunnel testing on litre bikes, let me tell you no realitvley stock bikes makes 180hp even the 14r.

That'd be a stretch even for a MotoGP bike.
Keep in mind the announcer said, "indicated 190 MPH." Most likely, the speedo was pretty far off and he was only going 160 or 170. A busa with a TRE could go over 200, so that would make sense.

i agree...if you watch closely, the rider on the R1 lets off before the busa passes. even w/o braking, wind resistance would still slow you down a lot in that short amount of time.

FGW By the looks of it, the R1 is doing just about 190. I've been up to that speed before many times.... so...

But that Busa. Damn. That thing looks like it's going another 40mph faster.

chadwick Reminds me of our ride a couple weeks ago and that guy on the ZX14

Stunt4Life I have that vid deep in the catacombs of my laptop under "sport bike vids"

Allways thought either a turbo busa or a slow r1.

kaustic I saw another video very similar to this one, where a turbo busa passes an R1 but there were 3 lanes I think... some car traffic, and the guy really gets far too close to the guy he was passing..... thats just stupidity in my opinion.

devilstonic I got that from you, of course...but I've also seen it printed on t-shirts.

devilstonic That guy almost got creamed by the guy doing the passing too...zipped right past him in the same lane. Talk about pucker factor.
