While we're on the subject of math (and therefore physics), remember that the formula for kinetic energy is KE=(1/2)mv^2. That's right, the velocity is squared. So if you're trying to top out that bike and you have a collision while doing 100mph you'll have four times the brain damage of a collision at 50mph. If you factor in that your helmet absorbs the first part of the impact, then the 100mph collision may give you more like 9 times the brain damage of a 50mph collision. It's not the collision that will kill you. It's afterwards when your brain starts to swell and you're skull won't let it. So you'll be able to get up, dust off, and pick up your bike before you black out and fall over. Then you just wait for the increased brain pressure to kick in. Hope you said your prayers.Viper_05 said:yea im 16 too.. just picked up my 2002 EX250... its a pretty pimp bike... i plan on killing myself on it :shock:
It's good to vent! I wish I had the money to buy a new Busa and pay the insurance. I wouldn't buy the bike, but I would like to have the money. I doubt going 250 mph on a Busa would be comfortable or even much fun - more like holding on for dear life and hoping you don't hit a small pebble.... But the regular 'busa is a very cool bike if you're into that sort of thing.ZX-2R said:You want a USELESS BIKE how about the twin-turbo "busa"? 250 miles per hour+! I'm impressed? Hardly. A perfect bike for the streets and highways of Los Angeles county...NOT. A perfect bike for Nevada Interstate driving...till you got stopped! I wonder what insurance would run on one...not really. Everyone has their own identity. No one is average. I feel better now!
