Looks like I did my yearly clutch a little late 😁 #motorcycle #clutch #fibers #broke #kawasaki #zx10r #dragracing
Way cooler than the over done “Murdered Out” or “Backed Out.” Every bike needs a little pop and you can never go wrong with neon green!
Heading back to Michigan with one more green meanie. #kawasaki #motorcycle #zx10r #elr #dragbike #zx14 #kz1100r #gpz1100 #green
Me at Indy last summer waiting for a test and tune run before race day for NHDRO. Looking forward to more races this summer!
Dave Aldana sporting the bones leathers aboard a Yoshimura Kawasaki Z1. Alongside the red A on his helmet, the black leathers with a white skeleton print became a trademark for the American legend, breeding folklore that the wild child of flattrack racing was threatened by the AMA to stop wearing the gothic garb.
Alpinestar recently came out with their “Human Anatomy” or “Organ Donor” that was inspired by David Aldana’s leathers.
Fuck yes is right! I am sure this would be a wild ride! ZX7?
Kawasaki Lightening Bolt
On August 28, 1978, Don Vesco averaged 318.598 mph on the Lightning Bolt. The 21-foot streamliner featured two 1016cc turbocharged Kawasaki KZ1000 engines. After failing for weeks to reach speed in the streamliner, Vesco salvaged some high speed gears and clutch parts from World War II airplanes at neighboring Wendover Airforce Base, and pushed the streamliner to two record-breaking runs within four days, first to 315.441 mph and then to the 318.598 mark, which stood for nearly 12 years.
