Back then 12.8-12.4 was considered pretty fast for the 1/4 mile on a stock bike.
Post a schedule when this happens I'd enjoy seeing what they can do today.
Check our website or the Drag Racing thread for info, but the team will be all over the east coast. The closest venues to DC will likely be Budds Creek, Maryland and Dinwiddie, Virginia (between Richmond and Petersburg). Their first race is in a couple of weeks in Valdosta, Georgia.
BTW, BMW claims a 9.8 second 1/4 with the stock bike, which is slightly quicker than the comparable Suzukis.
