If you were given the opportunity to take one lap around the track on a race bike or a couple of passes on a Pro Stock drag bike, which one would you choose? Remember you only get one. If you do choose the track, which bike would you want to ride?

I would choose to take the drap bike down the strip for a couple of passes just to feel what it's like to make a 185 mph pass in 7 some odd seconds. Nothing like going fast in a straight line. Of course I would need Angel Savoie to help coach me in my launches.YEAH!

Here's my vote...



Yeah, I know it's a Harley...but...

On a perfect pass, the front wheel NEVER touches
the ground until the end of the run...like how
do you say...."fuck me!!!"

Daytona, On a 500 GP bike, probably NSR500. That would be fun. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">

I'd have to go with the one lap around the track on the GP bike. Wouldn't matter which one as long as it was one of the two strokes. Kinda stingy with the track time though. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/ohwell.gif ALT=":\">

Let up for a second, and that's where you finish!!</p>

Laguna Seca on a 250 two-stroke or a GP bike. I think this would be a lot of fun for me. Especially the 250 just because it is small enough that I wouldnt have to wrench the bike around, just concentrate on going fast.
(Although I would probably take a few corners as do-overs if it was only one lap. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)"> )

Given the choice it would have to be the Isle of Man on a Honda RC166!! (250 or 297cc six cylinder GP bikes for the younger readers) Nothing brings the hairs on the back of my neck to attention quicker than listening to one of these sixes on full tilt!

1 lap or a couple of passes 1/4? Don't seem fair.

Gimme 14 laps on a works bike, any day!!!

Did I see correctly a couple harley drags going over 200 in teh 1/4 or I very well could have been mistaken?
Mark my words, One of these days I'll be out there doing it!!!

I think you guys are missing the point!!!! Our bikes
are 90% as fast as the bikes they are racing...not a lot
of difference. And for many of us, we already go to
the track and do track days....

But not many of us will EVER get to ride a 1200HP
TOP FUEL dragbike...0-200mph in 6+ seconds!!!!

Many guys pass out for the first 1/2 second of the ride
only to wake up with the beast pulling 5 Gs...

Aaaah, I get it....you're skeeered!!!!!

I'll take a 220hp GP bike weighing in at 360lbs wet. Any track would be fine.
Also I would like to take the same bike and do the TT.
Thats should take care of the needed G's.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol"> <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/laugh.gif ALT=":lol">
Although 1/4 mile blasts are entoxicating, going out on a track will give you a
longer adreniline rush I think.

You buy it 238 And I'll fly whereever you want me, To run it.

I seen a 255mph top fuel bike at Indy. That's my pick. Not 180 mph prostock, But top fuel funny bike, unhuu It
is a different beast. I wanna do it.

My goal is to have a second 12R straped in a trailar, beside's my street 12R, slammed and big bore kit, running bracket. I'm a reasonable man with reasonable goal's. It will happen.

But a top fuel funny bike is something I can only dream of.

If Jessie Jame's had a ZX12R I'd ride with him.

238...If I had the chance to ride that Top Fuel Bike, I would pass!!!...There is alot of skill involved to handle a bike of that caliber...I aint gonna kill myself!!!...Damn right I am skeeeered of that MONSTER!!!

A Prostock bike is one hell of a ride, guys that have DragRaced before will be able to get it down the track...

Honda's new four stroke V5 GP bike...the RCV. Without a doubt.....and around Laguna Seca too. I would likely wreck it, but it would be the greatest day of my life..... and would make a great story for the kids too. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/smile.gif ALT=":)">
