Decades ago, I rode a Kawasaki H2 750cc 3-cylinder 2-stroke, when introduced was the fastest production bike at 74 hp.
Now it's 12.0 ET is not even in the top 20.

Probably 1/8th mile.

I had a guy talking trash that his 318 Poly car ran 10's and was just as fast as my Bigblock car.

Then he realized mine was 1/4 and his was 1/8th mile times..


Nope, 1/4 mile. It gets real fast after a six pack of Natty Light. boogie

I used to think my 70 Cuda 440 4 speed was pretty quick…
Then I bought this

I never experienced any of the bad manners complained of for the early models, like head shaking on hard brakes (later had longer swingarm, which increased the wheelbase and shifted the CG forward), only wheelied too easily.
Oddly enough, a 100 lb. passenger tamed it down quite a bit, opposite of what I was told.
Decades later I sold it to someone in Germany who restored it.
