    Very nice!!! Are those stock pipes? What's the hp ? My Gold wing runs at about 125 hp. Do you race on tracks or just fast on streets?

    Not stock. Its a full Graves Motorsports Exhaust system. I'm at about 150 RWHP. My ECU has also been reflashed and has all the manufacturer's restrictions removed. It about the same now as a stock R1. I run track days on it and do lots of riding in the mountains of N GA, W NC, E TN

    Re: What are the cars/bikes/cycles you drive?

    And now for a different outlook. I'm looking for parts for a Schwinn kid trailer/stroller. It is a Joy Rider double trailer/stroller.I have 2 grandkids that I pull around, but the trailer given to me has a part that is missing that releases the pin that connects the thing to the stroller wheel. I'm looking for local Schwinn dealers. This is a long way from my vette & gold wing!!!

    It moves pretty good, but not like a full on sportbike. I think I hit 160+ on the back straight at Road Atlanta. I love that track!

    I just watched John Force win his 140 th wally by winning the Funny Car title at Norwood, Ohio !!
    I have been a NHRA fan since H S 1964. We used to go a small drag strip called Route 66 in southwest Chicagoland.

    Some thing new. I now have a Thulle roof top carrier on our Audi Q7 for camping. It stays dry & on at 80 miles /hour.

    Every year I do something to/with the 1978 Trans Am. This summer I am having the cats taken out since as an antique car it does not ever go to the state for emissions checks. It should sound better.

    Re: What are the cars/bikes/cycles you drive?

    OK Boats are in the mix. We used to have 2 wave runners . They were lots of fun. Most are faster than boats on any lake. Some "kids" were jerks on them causing crashes into boats, docks & people. Our kids were taught to be safe & not jump the wake of boats too close to them. YES. if you live close to water a boat is a great way to be outside.

    Our condo has boat docks available, I'm thinking it can replace motorcycles for me, no traffic or left turners, just water and the occasional other boater (I'll leave weekends to the tourists).

    I'm not so sure boaters are any safer than 2 & 4 wheels. I have seen such stupid boaters run into the docks at high speed and hit others boats at speed on open water!! Yes, weekends are the crazy time on waters. We had 2 wave runners and always went on a weekday after seeing the drunk,stupid people on sat & sun. Enjoy, but watch out.
