Pop some LT headers and hi-flow cats on there...take it up another notch, along with HP gains. Course, you will need a tune, and may as well install a CAI and then...

Yeah unfortunatly my knee dragging days are behind me.I went down at 130 mph and luckily im ok.There is nothing like dragging a knee at 150(i still cant believe it)but the risk of losing everything is just too hi,but now i have a hot rod that will be second to none,and my next chapter starts 3-1-13 at Laguna Seca ..oh and thought i would share a couple more cool photos.

I still love being a knee dragger but only in track days now. And since there are no tracks here in Hawaii it is all on hold.

I did a day at Willow. Wasn't a fan. Exhilarating, but stupid. Way too fast fighting a crosswind with a knee down.

I remember hanging off the bike at 130ish and having the wind push me all the way out to the track exit lane. Luckily it was only a gust and I was able to keep it on track. But I was pulling leather out of my butt for an hour after that one. Puckered tighter than frog booty... Lol

off-topic question for you knee-dragger , what is the material they use for the knee pad and if you know what kind of wear resistance it has? by the way,

Varies, some are a hard plastics others are leather. Wear resistance also depends on the track surface. I raced at a new blacktop track in Nebraska and went through 3 sets in one weekend. Yet other tracks they lasted 6-10 weekends.

Leather is a softer feel but more expensive. Plastic is hard but cheap. Purely personal preference.

Yeah it is a hard plastic kinda like a plastic kitchen cutting board.If you want to see something funny, look at the 1st pic(the one with 5 of us in it)and look closely at my knee sliders....ok through laughing.I made those out ot 3/4 oak, i was hoping smoke would come off them,but the knees aren't down long enough to build the kinda friction that would be needed but still pretty funny,my race buddy just laughed at me.

Very cool. Lots of respect for you motorcycle guys. Can't imagine pulling off some of the stuff y'all are showing. Gonna have to draw from my very short street racing days and experience with emergency vehicles when I go to the track when I get a new Camaro. I plan on taking it easy till I learn enough to stay out of trouble.
