    Walked off and left a.......

    Was out on the water Saturday 07/21 and saw some more Honda's which was a great site. Two 2006 R12's where playing around, and almost seemed to be waiting for me to get closer to make the drag race. 3 2 1 and we are off. Not from a dead stop though, I was approaching them from behind they had already got off to a start. 2-4 inch ripples, ~90 degree's, and ~50 humidity. I ran them both down, pull past, and walked off. Amazed me, surprized them. I could tell because they quit slowed down and were engaged in conversation. I turned to come back around, and they apparently didn't want to talk as they left and put the ski's back at the dock. Now for the other race....

    2002 Yama 1200R -- stopped him told him let's do a hole shot race. We lined up I told him to say when...... bam we are off. Blew him away out of the hole, was like he totally didn't even hit it. Mid range still walking away, then zoom right by me. Damn it. Oh well, can't win 'em all I guess. Although I saw him later, when the water had gotten rougher, on the shore. Asked him what he was doing (assuming he was broke down hehe) he said "Resting this thing is beating me up." I said "I can't tell, I got a smooth ride." Rode away feeling some vindacation. All in all a great day at the lake.

    absolutely for the R.. the R rides like the old yami GP's.. one helluva workout!

    but the F..no way. My F is smoother than my gpr was. GPR was still faster in the chop than the F, but the gpr had a 3 degree and not the 5 degree.
