we were about 8000 feet up and the ride was slow due to traffic, so she over heated a little bit.. those damn small fans don't cut the Cali heat..

not bad times, you could be faster with more practice if you look at your 60ft times you can see the launches are what make or break a run on a bike pretty much, its hard to get used to launching hard and controlled isnt it? very nice vid, busa guy was like wtf was that!

F#*k Busa's they are ugly!! Rc51's are Race bikes which Dominated the WSB and AMA circuit from 2000-03!! Race that busa at V.I.R or Mid ohio when they have an open track day and you'll Destroy him!!! Our bikes are made to handle and Race on a Road course not a Drag strip!! P.S: Nice launch bro!! now all you got to do is learn to drop that Knee and take it to a Road course, thats where the Rc51 becomes real fun to ride, when your dragging Knee at 90+mph.
