Ye it's unreal how much he's already bought and put into it and still hasn't had a full run. He also has a 11 sec Harley road king. One of those older guys that is hell bent on hd. He's pretty good, won a few amra (something like that) events.

I wanna race him on the road king. Just gotta learn to launch

Probably one of those old AHDRA crazy fcuks... Those old AHDRA races used to be GNARLY!!! Now they dont even have them really anymore that I know of, at least not around here.

Id rather run a Jap bike, personally, but maybe thats just because I know more about them. And dude, have you ever seen the crank on some of those fcukin HDs? It could double as a boat anchor for the titanic.

And the thing about launches is practice. High RPM and feed in the clutch as fast as you can without bogging or wheelies. In practice, however, its a little more complicated....

I'm sick at holeshots in mx, I just haven't worked up the balls to try to launch hard on the 6. It hooks up a lot more.

The crank on his bike is bout size of a roll of quarters. Ill get a pic later today of the one they just pulled out.

The crank webs on the harley's Ive seen are GIANT. I dont mean the journal size, but the actual weights/inertial part.

It looks like just a journal. He said thats all their was to it. He might have miss understood what I was asking. The rods on that bish are massive.

The rods are huge, but I dont mean where the rods mount, I mean the actual crank web where all the weight is kept...

Small pic, but gets the point across.

After some google what I saw was the crank pin. not the weights or anything. so ye your right, I bet they are big.
