While discusin fast with Jer I thought this would be a good place to start a new thread.

We were discussing that the street bikes of today are wicked fast. I was also saying that my old Honda ATC 250r is wicked fast.

How ever there are distinct differences between fast on street and fast on dirt.

Whats the fastest thing on dirt you have ridden and why?

I have ridden only 2 quads. One was slow and I don't really remember what quad it was. The other is was an 05 or 06 Suzuki 400. That was pretty quick. At least to me.

bike with the most hp on dirt would be my f4 in a field. 50mph
most powerful dirt bike 88 yz490.
fastest speed on a bike in the dirt 02 cr250 about 75mph.
most scary would be on the 250 in whoop fields in the desert about 55mph with your best buddy right next to you, both of us waiting for the other one to shut off first.:D

09' Fuel injected CRF450. Thing is so quick it's hard to keep the front wheel down.
Fastest thing I've seen on dirt (sand), was a Banshee frame with a Hyabusa motor in Pismo. Guy was dragging up comp hill. I think the guy owns flooring liquidators in Clovis.

Fastest quad would have to be an LTR450 with full stage 3 everything
Fastest thing on dirt period would have to be a custom built sand rail pushing 462.6 rwhp out of a vw engine

Hmmm... rode my ex's YZ450F a few times, but didn't wind it out... fastest I've been on dirt is about 55 mph in the dez on my YZ250F, I know the max top speed on it is 65mph (paced on pavement by a DRZ with speedo) but that's WOT... :D

2 strokes rule dirt. Out of the hole nothing can touch it

The fastest thing that I have ever ridden on dirt would have to be my 06 WR 450. Too bad I didnt wait two years and get the fuel injected version, but still can't complain about 450 cc's too much.

Rode a buddy's kid's 05 CR80 a couple years back. I couldn't keep the front end down even in 4th.

I disagree, 2 strokes might rule flat dirt but my four stroke will pull away going up a hill any day.:popcorn:
