So guys and gals, I wanna hear the fastest your bike will go in first gear...
my ninja 2 fiddy ARRRRRR! only did about 35mph in first...

whereas my Z1000 does 75!!!! i was like WHAT WHAT WHAT!!!

Darkhorse i wanna hear what your cbr hits, and felix your zx6r as well... im curious to see if they are about the same or if you guys have different gearing or because your redline is higher maybe you can crush a lil extra outta her...

and CsBrad, and R6s_2NR if he ever comes back onto our lovely forum... and anyone else for that matter, post em up, lets see them.

on a side note i named my bike Zoe for obvious reasons...
( Cuz of Z in Z1000 ) <-- for those of you who still dont get obvious...

perhaps i should elaborate pernounciation as well... <ZO-E> aka Zoey... but i like it without the Y!

My CBR600RR goes 50mph in first and 90mph in second. I only tried it cause the the guy I bought it from said it would do it and before I got used to the shift points. But I try not to max the low gears out, I think it burns too much/wastes fuel.

88mph. And yes, I have repeatedly tested that. It still pulls the front hitting 2nd at that speed, haha. :eek:
what always freaks me out is not when it comes off the ground but rather when it skids across the ground, i need to get a steering stabilizer... stat!

my friend Jon hss a turbo Hyabusa. His wife rode it at Bonneyville. She hit like 175 mph. She said it would not go any faster. When they looked at the data log . She shifted into first 5 times. Seems she was used to GP shifting.

I call BS on 175 in first on a the turbo 'busa unless it was WAAAAAAAAAAAAY undergeared.

My friend has an '08 and says that the shift light, not the rev limiter, but the shift light, comes on at 105... His girlfriend has ridden it other than him, but needless to say if he ever offered I'd turn him down! lol!

Just hear say but that is the story . The bike is geared for 250 mph and the sorce has no reason to BS anyone but it is a tall tail .
