I’ve just got a ’05 ninja myself, but I have ridden race ATVs set up for XC and built several fast drag and road race cars, the pro touring Camaro I am building now should eat up 600 super sport bikes on a road course.
Back when I was 19-27 I went to the local midnight drag races every week. It was a pretty lose run what you brung kind of deal. Just about every week some new guy would crash a nearly new 600-1300 cc bike, mostly before the 60ft mark. Also I drove a Camaro then that would run a 11.90-12.10 every pass and I beat a lot of guys on 600+ CC bikes simply because they couldn’t even begin to tap the bikes full potential added to louse reaction times at the lights, and this is just in a straight line mind you, but there was one kid there about 20 that had been riding all his life and had an older beat up second hand 500 something that would get me by 5-10ft every race and I was always more impressed with him then the hacks that often couldn’t match that feat on massively more powerful bikes.
