    1320ft.(1/4mile)
    12.19 / 12.34= 0.9878
    100-98.78=1.22%
    1.22% of 1320=16ft.

    Raider wheel base 70.9"(5.9ft.)
    16' / 5.9'= 2.7

    About 2.5 bike lengths faster. Yep, photo finish.

    when did i call it a photo finish? i re-stated what the article said and that it was .15 sec faster than the raider. also stated it was $5,000 more than the raider. im glad you quoted me in your response because it proves that your just pulling stuff out of the air. woohoo!! your bike might be .15 sec faster than me when rode by a professional rider...show me some slips of when you ran a 12.19 in the quarter mile. dont ask me for my slips cuz im not out here tooting my own horn....again your arguing just to argue

    I'm wondering, did you get kicked off the Victory Forum? Otherwise, why are you over here bustin' our balls over a motorcycle we obviously don't care that much about? We don't think there's anything wrong with the Victory, we just like the Raider better. That's why this is a RAIDER forum. We've responded to your posts, because as a whole, we're courteous to one another. However, because you don't seem to have anything positive to say about the motorcycle this forum represents, you might want to think about moving on.

    Like I've said in previous post, I ride with raiders. We rib each other as much as I have in this thread. Nothing is directed at anyone personally. I'm just clowning around with ya'll. The raider is a great bike. By the way, I forgot that Raider58 already raced and beat me when my bike was a 92". This is also not an attempt to save face. Ride safe.

    250 on 8.5 wheel will no way go under the Raider.
    Use your stock wheel but thats a lot of pinch on the 250.

    Thought you were "out" seems like your trying to stir the pot...think were all pretty much done with it. This is a raider forum, the majority of people ride and love their raiders. It should be no surprise that your not finding huge amounts of support for the victory or anything else. Especially when your trying to promote it over the raider.

    Since you're on a roll, how about not posting on this forum?

    How's it going. This forum is DOA! Thought I'd dredge up some old history. Good times.

    Went over to to the other, but canít name it here, they block that, itís something like r o a d s t a r r a I d e r d o t c o m.

    not sure why this forum died, itís taught me so much when I was new to the Raider, it still has great historical value, you can search and find many answers on everything Raider Related, modifications and such. I even found an old member who still had an Ultimate Seat for sale, we just did business.

    take care and Happy Trail, the riding season in upstate NY is almost upon me, canít wait.
