My favorite place this summer so far… With this “totem”?
I’ve never tried this before. Now I had the chance to make few runs and it was so much fun!
Here’s a reference list of quite many bike models of what could be possible. XR is not in the list but S1000R is and someone has made it 10,34@138,4mph (222km/h)
My first run ever was 13,918@157km/h, second was 13,217@169km/h and third 12,664@178km/h
Here’s my third run in video.
XR has the electronics to make this quite easy! Don’t mind about rear wheel burning too much rubber, don’t mind about wheelies or don’t mind about the clutch at all. Just remember to run the gears up while you’re accelerating!
Then later I took 3 more runs. First 12,171@185km/h, second 11,899@187km/h and the last was 13,774@120km/h. This was the first attemp with actually full throttle from the start and that made the front wheel fly…. And I don’t have the skills to do that so I kind of panicked! Here’s one video I took of a battle CBR600F Vs ZX-12R:
And finally a friend of mine had my best run on video… So here it is 11,899sek!
Finally! This is what I was waiting…
2 guys says the best is KTM, 1 says the best is BMW. And they all say the fastest is BMW!!!
But today without me. I had to go to work (what a pitty!)
But I had the time to visit the starting point and go to the corner few km’s after the start.
24 bikes passed me like this:
13 bikes took the ride to the archipelago area of the west coast. Kasnäs is the village in Kemio island. But first we had to take 200km’s ride there and then back…
Here are the pictures!
