VN750 a drag bike?
well, I went down to chopper fest 2 weekends ago at the local speedway to check out the scene. As I'm walking around the vendors booths I hear them announce over the PA anyone who wants to drag their bikes down the strip can for 10 bucks.. So I look around and figure what the heck. I paid my 10 bucks (unlimited number of times for 3 hrs) and signed a waiver and in line I go. off the line the bike faired pretty good against many. she walked all over a couple different 850 honda magnas. almost took a shadow 1100 but got passed in 5th gear. my best 1/4 mile time was a mind numbing 78.6 MPH (granted with large memphis shades windshield, loaded saddle bags and a back pack strapped to the back) worst defeat.. lost to a crotch rocket that mustered 148.3 in the quarter.. just missed him by a nose! Had a great pic by a guy with me at the starting line with the green light on the tree and the front end of the bike off the ground but he says he can't get it to download.. looks good on the camera anyway! Definately not the way I drive everyday but I guess for me anyways it's not 2 often I would get the chance to run down a drag strip so I took it!
