remember the Vulcan Vs Sportster debate?

Ran across this guy on the sportster forum. However, he did have a wheely bar.

I have pee'd my pants almost a couple times when the front wheel was rising precariously. I have to learn that 1st gear is way way to short. But 10.8 seconds on the quarter is heap fast.

Stock 93-1200 heads, Mik 42, V8 cams, air shift and wheelie bars, Stock frame, street legal tires

That time was 120.16mph on the 1/4 mile. Bunch of guys over there race. Will have to ask how you get into that. I would suck at it of course but might be fun. We have a new strip at the charlotte motor speedway and Rockingham seems to be always busy with bikes when I go by there.
