In a fit of reckless frustration, and rage. I pushed my Black one to it's physical limits on State Road 441 against what looked like a DUCATI Supersport 1000. We pulled up to the red light light, me jamming to KORN at 150+DB, him looking all sport like solid black, apparently he didn't like how loud the music was, so he revved his bike to what seemed like a deafing red line. I turned the music down, and quickly hit the rev limiter The light turned green. He's up on one wheel, steadily pulling away from me as I stay at 4k+rpm through 3rd gear, at this point he has me by 4-5 bike lengths, I catch him at 130mph and blow by him with the needle burried, while shifting into 5th, glanced up and was getting 1.8mph. I suspect he had some mechanical difficulties, got scarred, or backed off. In either event he got bit. Can't wait to come up against him in the Red or Silver oneJohn Hennessey said:Any of you had any encounters with bikes on the freeway? Ive had a few and was just wondering if any of you have as well.
Well, put it to you this way, Craig's twin turbo Ram SRT on 6 psi and about 580 rw hp beat down a 600cc sport bike from 60-120 by about 10 truck lengths. Could there be anything more fun than beating down a bike guy with a 5300 lb. truck? I'm still laughing.MarkPMB said:It depends on what bike you pick a race with.....
choose your opponents carefully
Even the 600 class bikes are running 10's in the 1/4 mile ...
you may have a chance against some cruiser bikes ...
and you can probably take most Harleys, except a V-Rod

I pulled out on the the highway and this guy was a dot already, so I figured I'd push it and catch up to this guy. Well to make long story short, I caught up to him in about 4 or 5 miles, at about 125-30 mph and as I came up behind him I back off enough to match his speed staying about 30 feet behind him. I was there for maybe 30 seconds at 110 mph when all of sudden this guy did a speed wobble and I could see him watching me in his mirror. I don't know if those were bugs or his shorts unloading on my windshield but I back off.
HAHA.. Well, I drive agressively (not prloud of it, just a fact). I bought the damn things to drive the piss outta 'em. I figure, I don't drink and drive, nor talk on the cell phone. So I got a pretty good shot of being in control at 100mph+ than those idiots. I've been pulled over approx 8 times now. Still no tickets, just about 10+ hours of time pissed away talking about the truck on the side of hot ass highways. If you do get pulled over, just offer to let the officer take it for a test drive, that'll get you outta the ticket. Especially if you ask him to stop by your house/business when he's off duty, for some reason they eat that "s" upMarc T said:Man,
I don,t know how you guys get away with this. Where I live I,m lucky to get her up to 100 before my Detector goes off or I run up on traffic. Gotta get this thing outa town to some rural areas where I can really have fun.
Thinkin nothern Georgia maybe!!!
