At least once every ride
All the time
I did a burn out last week & the street's still smoking !!!
I follow the Busamen's Creed !!!!!!! http://www.hayabusa.org/forum/random...ans-creed.html
I don't know that I've ever actually went WFO on the throttle in first, but I do lay into it pretty good every now and then, but I honestly don't have too much of an issue with the front end When I get into it I usually crouch over the tank, being so tall I probably put a good amount of weight close to the front tire. Second gear WFO is a little less often, but if I get a good back road with no traffic I'll put it close to redline and let her wind back down. I think she maxes at about 110 at redline in 2nd, which I honestly don't think is too ridiculous on a public street so long as you do it in the appropriate place. (110 km of course and theoretically speaking, none of this is real world application).
I can't believe some of you haven't opened this bike up in first or second !? I'm still dying to open her up full throttle in 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th Haven't done it yet though
I take it from a rolling start in first all the way through the gears to redline up till about 180 or so almost every ride. And I definately go through at least the first few gears that way multiple times on a ride But I also have the roads to safely do it though too Why buy a hayabusa and pump it up with performance mods if you're not going to use the power? lol. I bought this bike for the rush and comfort
wheelies are just plain fun
QUICK - POST IT ON ALL THE FORUMS I CAN FIND .....groan
I Haven't in 1 or 2. Came close but I don't like dogging my bike. It'll last longer if not abused.
I short shift through first allot to set the front back down. Rolling on through first lets you wind it. Stock gears. I think I would like a faster throttle ~1/8-1/4 turn, I learned to like WFO on my 'crossers. Nothing like that pinned feeling 55 MPH comes up quick though

Hmm, How to answer. I'll just plead the 5th on this one.
Uhmmm.. I've never seen over 100 in second gear on my bike (mostly because I won't look down)..... But I can honestly say I have never seen it..
I can say I haven't just WOT, but I have rolled in to it in to red line. I mean I had to know.
I'm just sayin... Know what I'm sayin.. That's all I'm sayin..
i like rollin up kinda lazily into the yee haw fun zone, and snapping the throttle to spin the tire, add a little modulation to come out hallin but bu the time you need to shift. then do it again in 2nd. works really good on a cold road with a bald Q2.
i tend to play slower hooligan stunts (like the above) on my own personal road.

Part of going fast is remembering that at some point you have to slow down

Ive done it once or twice. but really no need.
I think that I have maybe done it once or twice....but that's it, it leaves you well into the 120+...I don't need to go to jail!
Over 150K miles of road rash free riding...I'm looking for some wood to knock on. That probably means that I'm not riding hard enough!
Absolutely no reason to pin that throttle back fully.
Full throttle is Suicide, in any gear...That's my opinion.
