    I got to race my buddies street bike last night. NOT a fair race ata ll as its a gxxr1000 with a couple mods, so this bike SCREAMS. But hes only had it for a few weeks and isnt the best rider yet. Anyways, we raced twice, once from about 5mph(i had alot of tire spin) and once from about 40(2nd gear)

    He has a hard time really hammering it without the wheel coming up, so i was able to stay with him for a bit, until around 80 or 90 then im all done.

    Hes got a buddy with a stock r6 which im gonna take a crack at next, from what ive seen at the track that should be a fairly good race.

    Anyways, my friend taping wasnt the best as the apillar is right in the way in one race LOL.

    The SC whine from your cobra is sexual in nature.

    The R6 does somethin like a 10.8 1/4 mile, so unless you're bringin the A-game and the guy isn't the best rider you have your work cut out for you.

    most r6's ive seen trap in the 115-120 range, and riders have a hard time launching as hard as cars(wheeilie). Ive never seen a stock 600 run in the 10's at the track :shrug:

    To tell you the truth I came up with that number because when I bought my VTX 1300 my little brother came with me to drive my car back, he was interested in sport bikes. The gentleman at sky cycle told him it ran a mid to high 10 in the quarter so I guesstimated.

    The link goes to a stock 600 shootout, the R6 ran a 10.68 1/4. Like you were saying though, he'd have to have a pretty slick launch to pull that off. I bet it will be really close, and oh man it would be sweet to say you can take sport bikes in your stang.
