Amazing performance from my RT........

So, last night I was on my way home on the RT. Stuck behind some bozo taking his time to make a right turn, creeping along in first gear. Just as he was starting his turn, I glance in the mirror, & cars are coming up fast. As soon as I clear his quarter, I pin the throttle. The bike lunges forward, & the front wheel starts to lift. As the revs head north to 7K, I hit second as quick as I can. The front lifts again, this time floating about a foot off the deck. The revs are still climbing, but it's time to ease up, so I gently start to roll back, & shift to third, then fourth. WOW!!! What a ride. I had no idea.

You have my sympathy.... :dopeslap:

 

 

Sympathy? Are you kidding?

 

Have you ever had such a fun dream about your RT?

 

This is GREAT! I got to live the fantasy all RT riders have.

 

Escaping the restraint of the boat anchor for real performance. I can't wait to show Nate Kern what this baby'll do at Jennings next month. :/

 

 

Hi Whip. :wave:

I test rode a new 1200 just before I bought my 1150. Air was hard to avoid on hot shifts to second. The bike was a blast, just didn't have the extra $12K

No dreamin here...after I installed the full Lazer system it was scary easy to loft in first, and second as well, if you try...

 

just sayin,

Danny you need to upgrade. I had the same dream only Jessica Simpson was on the back.

She is not bad on takeoffs, it is those hard braking setups for a big turn that gets her spurs active, damn that hurts! More the twisty the more I get my jacket rearranged.

I had a ZX9R before this... it taught me throttle control on large displacement motors when using 1st gear. Otherwise, the RT would be airborn all the time in 1st. I still lift 2nd on occasion when passing cars. More often with a passenger.

If I could stuff the drive train from the 1200 into my 1150 I would be in heaven. (maybe literally) A great looking bike with just the right amount power, fuel mileage, and all the other good stuff that comes with a premium quality bike.

I did a demo ride in Daytona on an 08 12RT and hung the front probably 6 inches off the deck whilst rejoining the group when a car turned in front of us at a light. It's pretty easy to do.

 

 

I also power wheelied and later spun the back tire of an F800GS on a damp road coming back to the dealer. That little rascal is fun to ride!!

I pinned the throttle in first gear on my 650 V-Strom the other day. I swear I felt the forks extend a bit. Heady stuff.

 

Must have been all that heated clothing..... too much mass over the front side of the bikes CG. :grin::thumbsup:

Danny....Keep it in your dreams....Remember Fla. laws do not like one wheeled RTs.........

 

 

I think there is a difference in a wheelie, where the guys is standing on the rear pegs and has the front tire up and is going for about a block vs. someone shifting through the gears and the wheels gos off the ground. I have done the wheelie thing on my RTP going after cars. I know what he/they are talking about. It is a easy thing to do. :grin:
