Harley Davidson drag racing

I have never really had an interest in HD's until I saw a Night Rod a while ago, as far as HD's go this one is really nice. Then last Saturday at a local drag meeting, I was working and taking photographs, a Night Rod showed up. Driven by the chairman of the local club. I must admit it was quite impressive, no visible lack of power either.

I would love to see a photo of you leaving a black line behind you, I won't even try
My point was that this was a nice looking bike and it must have "some" power
I never said anything about cornering, but I can appreciate looks.

ASC won't let me do that - besides, I think the black line was from the soles of his boots.

You can turn it off. Just hold down the ASC button.

I know, but try doing that in first with the throttle wide open.

With the price of tires being what they are, I have never understood the necessity to do a burnout. BTW, it doesn't take a lot of HP to do it.

Fast, you must mean the Suzuki, Not the HD. The Suzuki is GONE, like smoke compaired to the HD.

What was the time of the HD in the 1/4 15 Seconds?

Bazra - it was 13.2
Actually, he was not doing a burnout, he was going down the straight, with a black line behind him. Surprised a lot of people there
