Yeah but....

I can hear at least 13kph of wheel slip in that vid

That thing has some serious mumbo doesn't it - you sure it's a kwacka Chum??

Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

Kwaka

Not entirely sure about the bike, but the speedo looks similar that on the ZX6R... so maybe a ZX12? Boycie??

Hmn

Its definitely not a Boycie. It looks like a Kawa clock to me, ZX10.

Me thinks he's change sprockets to get those readings and his pants probably!

Hmmm

Thought the same and have to agree Boycie, looks fast but 250kph+ sweepers????

and my eyes don't agree with the speedo, or maybe it's time to upgrade my old 386 PC

Disaster Recovery

BP & I went for impromptu afterwork 'sharpener' yesterday. You know just a quick pint before going home.

The Stella wasn't quite good enough on its own so we hit the Jaegermeister. Four of them in between the six stellas

Needless to say it all went horribly wrong and I imagine BP is currently using his monitor as a pillow rather than reading whats on it.

The list of my own disasters:
1 x Broken watch
1 x Broken Nokia phone (new)
1 x Pair Soiled underwear
1 x Puddle of vomit next to the bed
1 x Bruised Thigh & Forehead

So Kiddies say, 'NO' to Jaegermeister. It's just not well for ya!

what

Boycie ya puff just had a couple of cleansing ales and you fall over.
I haven't felt this bad since the 6 hour malay ambulance trip.

Jagermeister is now officially known as the black death. I can't remember half of the night and judging by Boycie's damage report thats probably a good thing.

Right. That vid is cobblers. Somebodies been farkin around with it.
If you watch carefully it just doesn't even look that fast. and at one stage he's doing 265 in 4th gear!!!
Nope not avin any of it!
Still bleedin quick on those roads thou eh!

This needs a statistician...

If you look you can see the 100m posts on the right-hand side. I counted 30 (3km) between 19s and 1m13s, which works out at an average of 208 kph.

I then shuttled back through noting the speedo readings every second over the same segment. Apart from half a dozen obscured ones, the average was 229 kph, which is +10%. Typically, speedos read about 8% fast and the residual error is negligible, or due to an extra tooth on the rear sprocket.
