hey Dan,

do you work for JR. i have everything done to my car except forced induction. it's at the point of needing a new motor. so, i'm debating on what to do. i would want more HP than a SC can give. i was thinkin along the lines of an FMIII w/ forged, oversized piston's. probably to the tune of 300hp....woohoo

but, since i got the bike....i know now what fast is :)

Racer X,

Yes, I work in the wholesale side of the company. Do you already have a charger on it??

I just talked with one of the Mazda guys. He said that 300hp at the wheel is A LOT. We can get ya over 200+hp. 200hp isn't bad for a motor that only came with 104hp at the wheels.

But you can talk with Dealer Alternative (Bill). This guy is really good. If you want that kinda HP talk with Bill. I will give you his # if you need or want it. :D

Heya Racer X...

Welcome abord... I myself used to live in Houston before moving up north to go to university... (I'm really Canadian)

Anyway, my sister and I were regulars at JCI on Friday and Saturday nights... I used to ride w/ a crew of guys before I left and as far as I know a couple of them are stile hanging around.... Who do you know down there that you ride with?

Anyway there amigo... Will chat with you later....

There's a couple boyz (PETE) w/ VFR who live in Houston on this board... You'll find one another eventualy...

Wow! Mirror image of what I used to do in Houston! Just where was the Solo running at? When I was in town we did it up at the Police academy.

Also recongized the Wharta run. I assume you do (if it is still open) Ho Chi Minh in Memorial park? Shredded that place many times.

Did the James Coney Island thing also on a '93RR. I remember when the local sport bikers on Westhiemer got run off from where they were hanging out and started up the Coney island thing. Glad to hear it is still going. Just be careful making the runs down memorial to downtown and back out Allen Pkwy. Some of the those guys are dangerous to be around! (at least they used to be).

Anyway, thanks for the post and welcome to motorcycling! Your post struck me as it brought back the times I spent there. I did many of the things you seem to be interested in!

Be careful, look everywhere when on the bike!

Gary

"not into"?....or just....."can't do"?

there's a few old saying...since i'm probably a little bit older w/ alot more miles...not on a bike....just driven miles.

there are old riders(anything can be placed here...pilots, sailors, racers...)
and there are bold riders

but, there are no old bold riders...

i'll eventually progress to learn to do wheelies. probably never stoppies. neither serve to make you a better"faster" rider. :)

Hi Racer X. Welcome to the forum. I agree with your views about wheelies and stoppies. They are just show off moves that beat the bike up. Especially the stoppie. Great bike, looks sweet in that yellow.
