My weekend against a 2002 Raptor

OK so this weekend, I took out the shee....well, my nephew about 2 weeks ago purchased a 2002 Raptor and he has put a few things onto it to make it look perty....anyway...we went head to head across a sandpit, my nephew on his and my other nephew on mine (they weigh virtually the same) and they took off across the sand and of 6 trips, it was split as to who won, but the winning was very very close, i would say not even a bike length difference...

so later that day, we were on the road, and again the same two riders, and my shee out of four races on tar beat the raptor, but again not by much...but it was a semi short track to run....

so...sunday, we were on our way back from the dunes....and we took the road back....my nephew on the raptor and my other nephew on his yz decided to make a run....after they took off i decided to bust balls...and let her rip...i caught up to the raptor and passed it like it was nothing...the raptor that he has was clocked next to a pickup at about 82 mph....so we are figuring that my shee is around 85-90 mph....

i literally smoked the raptor....it was friggin awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am excited!! ahahahaha

Re: My weekend against a 2002 Raptor

sounds like the shee(if I may) just needed to to be let loose.our 88 250x went up against an older warrior(year unknown)with my son(14)and his friend(14)as the riders(been ridinga year or so)in a gravel pit and the two had a blast,stopping every couple of laps to laugh and just be in awe of what they were doing.After about 1/2 hour of wacthing them I told them to let loose on the beasts!!they had even more fun.thats All my son could talk about for the next 4 days
for some reason the honda kept coming in the home strecth ahead of the warrior,but they would tell me later that it was a toss up while running the pit.also the honda seemed to be able to handle tight corners a litlle quicker than the warrior.the warrior hit the small jumps they would take with al ittle more distnce than the honda. but no matter.
well anyways i thought I would throw my 2 cents in.

Re: My weekend against a 2002 Raptor

no doubt in my mind...although there are some panzies out there who prefer "smooth, tractable power delivery" of a 4 stroke haha i think that is the phrase they like to toss around...shees some people...

Re: My weekend against a 2002 Raptor

what all was done to this Raptor? and what all is done to your Banshee? If I take and put a bunsh (more) into my Raptor I can make it blow the doors off your Banshee, so whats the point here? EVERY ONE CAN BE BEATEN AT ONE TIME OR ANOTHER, just depends on how much money you want to spend!!!

Re: My weekend against a 2002 Raptor

In my experiences so far, the two have been so close its not even funny. Stock for stock anyways, if one or the other is modified then god only knows what can happen. As long as we're all havin fun, doesn't matter to me.
