Speeding on German Autobahn
« on: November 18, 2015, 05:17:15 PM »

Hi
I bought a cheap gopro clone a few months ago, stuck on a tripod on the tank, and made this video, I am lucky to live partly in the Netherlands and partly in Germany.....
Enjoy!

Hi
This was just a testrun, on the 1 gen ZX10R my top speed on clock was 299 (it goes not over that number) and revs were still going up, with the gopro clone on the tripod i was unable to get my head down and too much traffic. Anyway I had fun doing it, I hope the new ZX10R 2016 will be as quick and as much fun to ride, can't wait...
regards

here some very old stuff, the first real fast roadbike!

Being an old git, fast going towards 60, my (gen 1)ZX10R is almost standard, just a BOS slip-on and K&N filter, it is fast enough for me, 2 months ago it still produced 154 bhp on the rear wheel, on a dyno, with a nice flowing curve, I will attach it, when I find it....

 Hi Michael
Got a question for you, in 1998 I owned a Yamaha Thunderace, a friend of mine had a shownumberplate made for me in England, unfortunately, he is no longer with us, I stuck the plate, illegally of course, on the Yamaha and was never pulled over by the police, could you, when I sent you the money have a shownumberplate made for me and drop it by and have a coffee and talk bike at my place, when you go to Germany again? Pic shows Yamaha with, at the time, big Dutch plate and the illegal one.
Regards, Tom.

Hi

Here a comparison 2004 against 2016 ZX10R power, my skills are not good enough to overlay the 2, so I put the 2004 powercurve in by hand, but you can see how strong it is in low and midrange....
