My first memory of Bonneville is watching Craig Breedlove running fast on jet powered cars. I was hooked and longed to
travel to the salt flats hand have a go. I was a gear head before I even knew what a gear head was.
Life took me down many other trails and as I neared 55 I realized time was growing short to go play on seriously fast motorbikes. So I bought a new old stock 2007 Kawasaki ZX14. Truth be told I should have gotten a Suzuki Hayabusa. They have better aerodynamics and more potential for big horsepower. But EVERYONE has a 'Busa.
I had a great plan. Start with a stock motorbike and work my way up to speed slowly. Gain experience in a new adventure while learning how to tune. Great plan. Here is who it really went.
Stock Broke the bike in and had it dynoed to get a base line for modifications. I learned from my years roadracing that what people told you did not always work. The bike was average at 148BHP (corrected) and 86 ft/lbs of torque.
