|I showed some footage to the list some time ago, of my sidecar rig in a drag-race in 2006 (top speed, solo runs only). It was an 1/8th mile Ďunofficialí run, done at the Sportbike Rally in Parry Sound Ont. Unfortunately that video was poor Ė it was a cell-phone vid clip, and really didnít give much in the way of detail.
I ran into much more polished footage Ė as part of the 2006 promo video for 2007 on their website. Itís about 2/3 the way in, and is of a 2 view clip. The terminal radar speed for that 1/8 mile run was 144 km/h. 1 km/h faster than a KLR650 LOL.
Iíd love to know how to un-imbed this video from that webpage.. itís shockwave/.swf format, but I canít download it to my system locally through the .html savepath for the media file. If anyone knows, lemmie know.
I can play it fine with this ancient old P3-800, so I donít think anyone else should have any issues, though it played better in Firefox, than IE7.
I won't be going to the Rally this year, due to money considerations, as well as the fact that they axed the radar run for 2007
