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 one :)

It depends on what bike you pick a race with.....
choose your opponents carefully :)

I only have a little Hemi...
but I'll give you some free bike advice :D

I have a 2002 ZX-12R...
it dyno'ed at 179.6 rwhp, and it weighs a little over 500 lbs :D

I have only ran the 1/8 mile track,
and my bike is set up for the twisty stuff..
I still went:
1/8 mile = 6.5 @ 115

Typical 1/4 mile times are 9.8"s @ 143-148

My derestricted bike's top speed 194 :cool:

The PMB on my name is the color of my bike ... " Pearl Mystic Black" :cool:

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

all run easy low 10's at 138-43

The ZX-12 and Hayabusa are high 9 second bikes stock :eek:

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.

It's always fun to beat a bike with a car/truck...
rarely happens, but is possible.
Just remember the bike you raced was no more than $8000 new.. :cool:

I have $11,500 in my bike total ...
nothing on 4 wheels has come close in the past 2-1/2 years...
I'm always looking for some worthy competition :D :D

Are you guys familiar with the video that was circulating a
few months back?
A very sweet Viper { car } owned by " Manny" ?
Anyways... 883 rwhp... lots of mods..
facing a few different bikes.
It does well against the stock Hayabusa, about an even match.
The first 12 minutes or so is of the stock bike,
then the fast bikes take over.

It's worth a look if you have not seen it...that Viper sounds sooo good :cool:

I love all things with speed...so I am happy either way :D

enjoy if you have not seen it

right click and "save target as "

An encounter of a bike kind

I was just approaching the highway when this bike went by about 100 mph+. 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.

Good idea with the back off. The last thing you need is a motorcycle in your hood scoop. Trust me... a bird does enough damage. Plus it would have been your fault. :rolleyes:
I watched that video earlier and all I got to say is DAMB!!! Those bikes are fast to begin with, but to have a 3000 lb car hangin/passin them, just blows my f'n mind. I couldn't believe it. That is just flat amazing that a car can go that fast that quick. I want one. :D

oh, and I really appreciated the "**** beat him" comment. If you don't mind I think I'll try to work that in around here. I was cracken up when I read that... strickly because I see alot of harley riders around here, with there EXTREMELY loud and obnocious exhaust... and they think it's the coolest sound in the world. Makes me want to **** beat a couple of them every once and awhile( see, I'm workin on it), and not with my truck.

please feel free to use the term "**** beat"

its an old term used back in my ice hockey days (normally a fight refrence) but it seems to fit when picking on (or actually putting a lesser in its place rather easily)


sorry im laughing as i try to type this

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" up :)

Speaking of getting pulled over

I was downtown 2 weeks ago grinding through some heavy traffic and just got to an intersection as it turned yellow, so I put a little boot to the SRT. I got up about 3 or 4 blocks and notice a cop car coming up through the traffic. I was about a block away from where I had to go so I turn right early and cut up the back alley. Half way down the alley I see the blue and reds come on and he was on me.
I pulled into a private park and he was behind me. He hopped out of his car and up to my door but I could see this big grin on his face. I opened my window and he starts off with, is that thing ever nice, my God I've heard of these things but its real. Man how much did ya have to put up for it, etc. etc. etc. To make a long story short he love my truck and called all his buddies on the radio to come over and take a look at it. So all the time I was doing my thing, there was lineup of cops looking over the machine which kind of put my mine at ease because I didn't have to worry about someone heisting it. It was well guarded.
