Actually, I'd get over the jealousy for that! Please post that on the HP4 whenever you can!

Well today after removing the rev-limiter I took a ride with a friend he has the 2011 zx10 we did a roll on from second gear and we both were just about the same then we hit 3rd and my hp4 started pulling same in 4th when I hit fifth gear I left him and I still didn't hit 6th I ask him what happen he said his bike top out at 186 so he could not go no more, I'm telling you this new hp4 are bad ass they handle and feel like a 600 but with the power of a zx14, I also got a hole on my jeans from dragging knee on the backroads lucky I wear knee pads under my jeans when I ride th streets

Awesome! I'm glad you're enjoying your hp4, I should be able to join you in a week or two.
I also heard about Lawrence, too bad the street represents those kind of risks.
I can't wait to get my hands on mine. So how fast did you get?
Fastest I ever done was 186 on my crossplane R1

Got more balls than me. If I'm riding hard enough to drag knee I'm wearing leathers. That just screams ER visit lol

Cross plane r-1 doesnt hit a real 186 more like 170. You should be able to get at least 190 or so out of the HP4.....I used to do that dragging knee stuff in my jeans. That gets expensive buying new jeans. A long turn and you are eating into your kneepads. Keep it safe.

Hmmmm 600's vs Liters, jeans vs leathers, HP 4's vs S1000's....anyone currently have any other thoughts on the ZX-10R and BMW S1000RR?
