It was worth a go anyways. I'm sure you put a smile on his face and surely you could have beat him through the on ramp.

I lose to a 740i
dont want to be that guy but man oh man that shifting was terrible, you should be able to hit 70mph in 2nd gear yet i can hear you shifting through all gears before even the next light? bmw gets down in the 0-60 in 6 seconds mark so ... "EDIT" just saw the tech in video dont know how i missed it lol" bu yeh that second gear had some more room but **** seemed the bike was struggling bad? is it still in break in stage? and if you can answer , whats your weight?

this wasn't a real run was just leaving a mates after picking up a few supply aka some vodka and a few packs of red bulls so my bag was pretty heavy and was not tucked. either way as you can see the 2nd gear has a lot more on it then some may think, and this is with a bike that has bigger tyres compared to stock so it should actually be going a little faster than what the speedo meter is reading

"sorry for the sun like I said I wasnt really trying to record this I just leave the cam on when I ride and overwrite the last file the next time I ride, so I dont have an other footage"

Im 165lbs, Yes the bike is still breaking in - thats the first time its been up in that rpm range ever... I also waited a tad till he was moving to get on it, I thought I did pretty good regardless and I had a lot of fun.

In that case good call, smart waiting a bit before reving it hard haha didnt mean to come of as a douche but I had a feeling it was still a fairly new bike :) I hope you're enjoying it

@emudshit " just saw the tech in video dont know how i missed it lol " --> It blends in...!

I watched your video several times and I can't see your Odo clearly " not your fault, mines the same " are you running 105 Kph in second gear..? I was at about 50 Mph in second gear ( 87 Kph ). I had to mount a camera to see my Odo cause I cant make it out from my helmet cam either, Its not perfect but its better. I actually bought it to capture miss shifts - And now the bike wont miss shift cause its being watched :)

I beat up on a WRX STI the other day on mine. Lol
Anyone else have theirs consistently pulling the front wheel up at the top of first gear? 160 pound rider here btw.

yep in that video I hit 105kph in second gear, sometimes i go all the way to around 112kph in second gear as all the 0-60 times I have done doing them without going into 3rd saves almost 0.6 seconds, if I tuck i can hit around 4.2, hopefully with the lithium battery installed and new akro headers I can hit 4.0 :) nah I can see the dash fine just not in videos haha, thats why I didnt tuck because if i do then the camera wont capture the dash and I hate always readjusting it
