105 1/4mi helmet started to rip my head off!
I am not trying to be smart here about whether you were at 1/4 mile or a 1/8 mile track. Here are two remark from vn750 forum owners.

letitflight Dyno drag:
i've put mine on to a dynodrag during a rally in the piney wood ( east texas ).
I was very surprise on how she reacted. Better than manufacture specs.
1/4 mile 11.9 seconds at 107.2 with 69 HP....that was my best try.
Guys.......a lots of people too were amazed by the performance of this machine.
PS: note that i've rebuilt the engine not even two weeks before the try, i had 500 mile on it....so i was kind of going easy on it.....!
Go on this site to see more result on different bikes: http://www.mygreatrides.com/

There's a track that's kinda local that has a 'Run what ya brung' also.
Now that I know my splines are good, and if I can get to the track, I'd seriously consider doing it.
I bet ya woulda got the crotch rocket if ya didn't have the windshield on !!! LOL

And yeah, gotta get that pic !!!!!
