    To this day I still dont know how you do that. Bike, Z, TL, Living in maryland. It just doesn't make sense. Even if i was making 100k a year i dont think i could live that way.

    It puts down somewhere over 450 whp peak, makes something like 300 ft/lb at like 3k. I'll have to find the graphs he gave me sometime.

    Reikoshea: he wholesales H to the locals.

    lol, its funny you say that.

    I met up with an old friend of mine about a year ago. The last time i saw him he was driving a 3g supra that was beat to shit. When i met up with him he was driving a yellow C6 corvette lowered with a BEAUTIFUL kit on it. I asked him what he was doing these days (we were working as telemarkerters together last i saw him) and he stared me straight in the face and said 'selling drugs' and then changed the subject. Who knows if it was true.....but It'd make a lot of sense for both him and Jeffie.

    373whp on a dyno dynamics dyno un correct, so figure 430ish on a dyno jet corrected.
    I sold the Acura, that's been gone for awhile now. Only honda left is the SI (linhs)
    I work a lot, enjoy making money and even more, enjoy making money work for me.

    That's a boost/vacuum gauge on the pillar, right? At first I thought it was a wideband, and was expecting your engine to explode.

    What makes you think its not a wideband and why would the engine explode?

    I don't have a boost gauge, I find it pointless after having a ECB that displays boost as with peak psi

    Gauges are wideband and a EGT temp.

    I'd never DD the Z, its too much of a toy now, my DD is behind the Z.

    i hate you.

    wifey wont let me haz a bike. Im sure if i got my life insurance upped she'd let me have one, but she's had 3 friends die on bikes (2 since we got married) so it's an understandable fear.

    I'm completely and totally jealous. That is all.

    I'm loving the flat torque curve. That thing's gotta be a blast to drive.

    AA. But Jeffie has a life and he doesn't want to hang out with hondaswappers.

    BTW, did you ever get that oil out of the driveway?

    yup, the sun took care of most of it. Best thing was to leave it alone.

    I don't mind meeting up with hondaswappers the only problem is there have been a total of I think 3 people from MD that go to hondaswap.com

    everyone else is either in New England, tx, or jail.

    My insurance would be around 800-1000 a month with geico/progressive for the bike. State Farm = around 30 a month full coverage. at 19 or 20? not sure when I bought my CBR600 I was paying high 20s or high 30s for full coverage.

    300 a month sounds like the rates of a non motorcycle insurance company. When I say non motorcycle company I'm talking about people who say they insure them (geico and progressive run TV ads like crazy) but when it comes down to it if you have a super sport they would rather outprice their product to you go else where.

    Progressive for a naked sport bike with more power then a supersport 600 = like 15-30 a month, less power but add "super sport" to the title and they'll jack it up to 200-300-400-500-600-700 a month.
    F them.

    Statefarm FTMFW!
