I have ridden a '87 TRX250R with a '96 CR500 engine transplanted into it. You feel it in the bars....more specifically, the elbows. I took this one out across a freshly mowed hay field for about a half dozen passes. That's all it took and I was done. I often hear the effect refered to as fatigue but its not really a tired feeling, its more of a premature muscle pumpish thing that happens.
It was fun as hell and quick too. The gearing was a little short but I don't know that it couldn't be fixed with the right sprocket combo.
For a drag only bike, I think you would be fine. If I was going to do a drag only bike, this is the route I would take. Staging would be the worst of it as it. You could take it to the dunes as a novilty but I don't think you would want it to be your primary bike.
Every day when I wake up, I beat my own personal record for most consecutive days alive...
