Motorcycle performance is usually measured in 1/4 mile standing start and terminal speed (My other machine is a Honda Blackbird - 1/4 mile in 10.25 seconds, terminal speed 140+mph, top speed 184mph, which means that I can be doing twice the UK speed limit at the end of the motorway on ramp) :-) <<<very big grin http://www.exchangeandmart.co.uk/newcars/roadtests.htm and search on Saab for figures... -- Regards, Danny http://www.gaggia-espresso.com (a purely hobby site) http://www.dannyscoffee.com (UK advert for my mobile espresso service) swap Z for above characters in email address to reply
