Was that kilo trap speed or gps? I could see why he didn't want Mike and his Outerlimits there That is pretty darn fast though.

Lapse, were you on the old unlimited FUSA bikes or the newer hp spec ones? Not trying to categorize you, just trying to figure out who you are.

I was on them from 94-96, Mine was a 92 ZX7 with a ZX9 motor, 2 mil. over with all the goodies, titanium everything weighed in at 372 full of gas with 170 rwhp.

Did you race?

I roadraced three years before and two after (91-98) but got sick of the big motor time bombs. Plus when the 98 R1 came out making 150 with very little work.......

Lapse, those were the REAL FUSAs.

I raced back in the late 80's on a VFR Honda. I tagged along racing with Tray Batey back in the days that we pulled a trailer with his KingCab Nissan truck. That was before I got tied up being married and he got tied up winning twenty-some-odd various national championship plaques.

I've still got bikes and a 99 R1, too. It's amazing what $10k will buy you off the showroom floor these days.

MC, let me know if you want a good deal on an 04 R1, I am getting 4, I also have a 03 GSXR 1000 blue and white with 130 miles on it. Some 54 year old guy bought it thinking it would be like his 82 GS 1100, the first time he rode it he looked down at the speedo and was going 125, He traded it for a XT225.

Yeah, I think it is cool that "production - based" hulls are reaching these speeds. I don't care how gutted the boat is or how big the motors are. The fact that the hull designs are stable and capable at those numbers is just exciting to me.

(yes, I know they are blueprinted hulls, but that doesn't affect my opinion)
