Yeah I know. I'm a power freak most everything I own runs on 106 VP fuel. The Eagle has a 1400cc kit with cams and pipe. The bike doesn't like to run a constant speed. Plus it only holds 2 1/2 gallons which I can go about 25 miles on. Not getting far.

Just hit shows and the town once and a while when we are out.

He probably ran out of fuel before he got to complete the pull

Always makes me cringe when I hear about young drivers who barely have any car experience learning to drive on a motorcycle. There is a lot of things a driver training course will never teach you. In a car, when you are learning and making mistakes(and most importantly learning how to spot others mistakes before they ram you!), the chances of walking away and learning from the experience is much better. Motorcycles are fun, but dang if they aren't dangerous with cagers and double dang if someone is not only learning how to ride but just learning how to deal with the streets on one at the same time. Be safe.

The HP on the Screamer is around high 180rwhp on the first pull then drops off about 10 or so when the motor gets warm. The tune can change the HP over 20rwhp when using the power commander.

Won't post a car again on this thread but if you are into HP this car will flat take anything at Dyno shoot outs or speed I have seen at a show. I posted the Heritage GT40 putting down around 750 on the new toy thread but built this to beat it.

On the video it's in 4th which is 1-1 for a dyano run. I hit the power at 60mph and run to the limiter ar 6500rpm at 160mph in under 5 seconds. RWHP on this car exceeds 1000rwhp. 40lbs of boost with 32 valves/ 4 stage 3 cams. Ford stage 3 racing engine.

Not bragging just love power and yes I trailer everything.

COBRA GTR

All fun. BACK TO BIKES.

I've been flying real planes since I was six with my grandpa (cessna 182/ Bonanza A-36/Gulf) and driving/ riding cars and bikes for a few years, so its just another step up for me I will be careful though. plan to use it in dry weather only in the mountains

i hear you on that rappy tappy..like my above post, i owned a R1, and it had some serious power..0-60 in under 4 seconds, really f-ing fast..ive been riding dirt my whole life, and i could handle the R1 without a problem..draggin knees, wheelies all the fun stuff..but i sold it for a single cylinder 600cc supermoto and i have not looked back! i have way more fun on the supermoto, and insurance is 20 bucks a month for liability/comp..and im only 21 years old..

but if it wasnt for my 10 years of riding dirt, i would have easily gotten into some serious trouble on the R1..and i mean i would have gotten hurt..it was my first street bike, and i simply laugh at those that say, "well i have self control and i can handle a R1 or other 1000cc bikes"..just stupid..

flying planes have nothing to do with riding..neither do cars..its a completely different world on a bike..which makes riding so great, and so dangerous..hell ive crashed 2 times in the past 6 months..once on a track, and once in the twisties..

so please, DO NOT buy a bike, until AFTER you have bought a GOOD one piece, or 2 piece LEATEHR(not textile,not that icon crap jeans with pads)..spend about 500-700 on the right leather one piece, or 2 piece(MAKE SURE the 2 piece can zip together) then spend AT LEAST 300 dollars on a helmet(bell,arai,shoei) get a good brand name one..then you can consider a back protector, (had a friend get hit at 140mph by another bike when he low sided and broke his back.he wishes he had one!) don't forget gloves either. seriously..by gear before a bike..cause you will be BROKE after you buy a bike..and crashing in jeans and a cheap leather jacket wont do much..hell that was my first crash..kinda why i bought gear..

heres what i bought
frank thomas xti jacket 250.00
frank thomas xti pants 300.00
frank thomas leather gloves 80.00
shoei tz-r hemlet 280.00
Alpinestar Tech 8 boots 450.00
Leatt Neck brace 350.00 (got a discount on it to!)

grand total of 1710 like i said, you will be broke after you buy a bike, so get gear first.it will take you months to get funds together to buy stuff..and when you have a bike capable of 0-60 in under 4 seconds, you do NOT want to go down in jeans..

don't get me wrong fella's. If I'm gonna get a street bike, I'm not gonna go cheap on the gear. my dad's agreed that If I buy the bike, he'll buy the best gear out there for me as part of the deal cause' he's getting a bike as well.

Take the MSF course, too.

Remember, when the front tire is in the air, you are not in full control.

Also, ride to your level. If it doesn't feel right, take the cage.

I agree 100% if it doesn't feel right I'll take my honda. I've had a Yamaha YZ- 125 for about two years so I figure a street bike sounds like a logical step for me. Do you think the R1 can be used comfortably with someone over 6 feet tall?

comfortably...no.

But it all is personal taste.

Go sit on one see how it feels. Sit on it for a half an hour at the dealer.

See what gives first, your back, your arms or your voice from making motorcycle noises.

My buddy wanted a sport bike, but he is 6'4".

He looked like Hermon Munster on any R bike. An FJR or cruiser fit him better. He still did not feel like he fit on any of them.

I took pix of him on an HD. It was quite comical.
