So one of the guys that i ride with approached me and sed to me how all the magazine say that the m109r is the fastest cruiser on the block, but he believes that's not true, hes convinced that his K9 will beet my m109R in a race, the only thing is that his has a few mods like pipes,jet kit, air cleaner, and maybe even a small big bore kit not shore of that though, but I'm still not worried i believe i still could take him.
What do you guys think or is there any one who raced a Big Dog.

Just smoke em, Unless he has serious internal mods it won't do the job... IMHO

Those people should just save the wear and tear on their choppers,:joke:

Set up a chart first list price of bikes then spec sheet then price of any mods then new specs then take em to the track.

If by any chance you get beat but not by much you can still have the last laugh but when you beat em you'll have the first, last, and other laughs

If youre worried about missing 2nd gear, just pre load the shifter and you wont miss, even at high rpm,'s.

I guess the main thing is make sure you guys are in a safe area, I would hate for anything bad to happen.

Second, smoke that chopper! Believe in your 9 and your ability. Of course you can beat him! :)

Stock i would give it to the busa...

For the big dog and m109R.... i don't own either but i have friends that own both.. the big dog guys say theirs are better looking and cost more...the 109 guys say theirs are better looking..cost less and run harder with no arguments from the big dog side... I say go to track...try to beat him at the lights and then show him what every one else aready knows. (and yes i have seen my buddies run the big dog...big dogs are sweet looking rides and i wouldn't turn one down but the 109R is faster)

I wish.. i do have the 09 M90 though...long story...if your interested in reading it here it is but don't blame you if not ;)

(copy and paste...gotta love it)

I was with out a bike for about 9 yrs...sold my 1978 z-28 while going through a profession change and told my wife that after the academy and 1yr on the job (to eliminate the probation period) that i would buy a new toy. Well the time was up and it was time for that toy...my wife talked me out of the muscle car and back into a bike.

I called my local zuke dealer and asked if he had the 09 GSXR 750 in black..he did and i told him to put it aside for me i would be in at the end of the week to pick it up. Later that day my buddies dad came over with his M109R.. i really liked the sporty lines and was impressed with the power when i rode it but still wanted my gsxr. Then my 6 yr old went for a ride on the back of the M109R...his first time on a street bike.... now my boy is pretty shy and doesn't ask people for things when he doesn't know them so it really surprised me after they returned form the quick ride when he asked him to take him for another ride. After that my son was in love and told me he wanted me to get a bike just like that...knowing my wife would never allow him on the back of the gsxr and also that i would not put him on the back i made the call back to my dealer. He put the gsxr back out on the floor and put the 90 in the back (he did not have a 109R at the time and also the extra 3g played a huge factor on the possibility of waiting) andthe next day my boy and i went and picked it up. I have not had 1 single regret with the change and all 4 of my kids love to ride on it as much as i do.

I know...long story... but it is the reason why i am on a cruiser now and not on a crotch rocket anymore....

Great story bro. The fact that you are on the bike is all that matters. If you are happy with the 90, enjoy and who cares. I tell people all the time that I use 100% of my power 10% of the time. I would be just as happy on a 90 myself.

Riders race!
Those are about the slowest times, if not THE slowest 1/4 mile times I've seen for either of these bikes. Stock 14s typically run deep into the 9s...
