Re: Craingslist 900RR ad that made me laugh.. hard

Why such a hater Demon, the Jeg's sticker is worth 50HP and 30 MPH alone! 180 HP (measured in Shetland Ponies) Race ready or drag ready, it's the ultimate dual purpose bike. Probably has a telescoping swingarm. 95% tread on the rear and 97% left on the front, clearly he measured and recorded his tread depth when new, and monitors wear with a depth mic in 0.001" and does the appropriate math, don't you? Adjustable shocks? Clearly this is no "street machine"! Don't even get me started on the 4-2-1 pipe, exotic stuff right there. Waayyy faster than an R1, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound...It's Super CBR! If only Nicky Hayden had this bike we'd see an American on the podium again.

P.S. Does look clean though, can you PM me that # : )

I don't know about yours, but my 954 will do 220 in 2nd gear! So I was told, I've never made it out of first.

Re: Craingslist 900RR ad that made me laugh.. hard

It actually does look clean and spiffy. He's asking $2,200, which isn't too bad for a bike that'll do 185 mph in 3rd gear (O.o) I thought it was funny that my speedo read 184 mph at 12K rpms in 6th gear with stock gearing but he was able to pull 1mph faster on a smaller bike in half that many gears.....


Anyway, at $2,200 in the condition it looks to be in..... I might have to actually buy it despite all the bullsh*t in the ad =)

Re: Craingslist 900RR ad that made me laugh.. hard

BTW, a lot of people don't know this, but those giant mirrors actually cause a vortex creating a vacuum bubble around the bike and rider and reducing the coefficient of drag allowing the bike to achieve a higher top speed per HP similar to drafting in NASCAR. Also, the effects of this increase exponentially as speed increases allowing the bike to continue to accelerate as you roll off the throttle. Man, what did those teenagers put in the brownies, I feel funny...

Mississippi I believe was the location =)

I think in order for him to achieve 185mph in 3rd gear he has to have a stunt sprocket on the rear?!?!?

My blade will easily do 185mph in 3rd gear, it probably wont survive the fall though without a parachute!

Re: Craingslist 900RR ad that made me laugh.. hard

I think 185 km/h in third sounds about right.

Reminds me of a guy that stopped by on an R1 same year as my 929. "How fast does your Honda go in 1st?" I figure about 120 km/h. "Well mine will do 160km/h". I'm thinking that's quite impressive. Then he let's me take it out for a ride. I found out that a 2000 R1 is remarkably similar to a 2000 929. Both bikes will go about the same speed in 1st. I didn't bother to mention that fact when I returned. After all his bike had to be better than mine
