You gotta do it when your out on the town at night...Ive done it when I had my camaro all the time, and of course, when riding, you can't back down from a challenge...even when some loser comes up in a honda civic, and wants to run you.. :smilelol: ...Those are the ones you just love to beat, cuz they get so pissed off that they lost to a bike!! why?, I dont know, didnt they expect it, dont they know basic physics? :smilelol:

But yeah, I do it too..not as much as I used since the cops seem to be out in force more than ever these days..but I still do it.

Just got back from a ride. I think I raced someone. The guy pulled up next to me on some space ship looking machine . he was hitin the gas and got in the leaning postion, I just sat there for a second or two as he putted off. Then I just stood that gsx-r 1000 up right passed him and saw a dot in the mirror!!!!!!!!!! :bike: :smilelol:

I've seen some of those bikes, if we are thinking of the same thing..there are 2 of them around my area...its a bike, enclosed in full fiberglass type bubble, right?

yeah they arent much for the whole speed thing..you could have probably run faster than him.. :smilelol:

You mean have I ever stopped for a yellow light so I could race the bike who was behind me in the other lane? Have I ever pulled over so I could race the biker who was way behind me? Have I ever turned down a street I wasn't planning to go on just because another biker went that way, and he may want to race? Have I ever been depressed to speed through traffic to race a biker in front of me and when I get there I see that it's a scooter? Maybe.

I had 2 Gsxr 650 try to get a jump on me at a red light. They were 3 cars down from me at 4 am on my way to work. They started to get on it when they saw the light at the intersection getting ready to turn green. They shot passed me but from a dead stop I beat both of them around 165. I think they were getting scared. I'm glad becouse I was two.

were you in a town, or in a rural type area...cuz 165 around town is pretty beastly...

I dont' really try to street race, but when me and Need4Speed go riding we just get on it and go and just have fun. Next time I will race him to see who wins.

No not really. You and I just like to get out there and ride and have fun. Nice to get on it and get some speed quickly also.

nah, we dont officially race and be stupid about it in traffic and all that..but if someone does come up and issues that subtle challenge, we aint backing down if we can help it. did I just contradict myself there? yeah probably, but oh well..we have fun, and we're sensible about it, so eh, its all good.

Not on my bike, a couple of us get pretty aggressive, though.

My car is a different story. . ran a friend's C5 w/ a 100 shot a couple weeks ago, that was fun.

That reminds me one night last year I was coming home from the sticks in my vette and ran into a pack of crotch rockets on a pretty empty interstate. We had a few runs starting from about 80mph and I pulled most of them. Then a guy comes up from the back and we're rolling at 100. . I hit it and he lifts his bike to 12 oclock to the point I couldn't even see the rider. As soon as his wheel touched back down he was GONE. F'n nuts.

I'm heads, cam, longtubes, no cats, etc etc, other than litre bikes I don't have much trouble pulling them from 80 or 90 and up. Below that's a different story, though.

thats the thing that puzzles me when these jokers in tricked out 4-wheelers wanna race a bike all the time..especially in a rural or city area..theres no way they're beating any kind of decent bike, light to light...then when you smoke them, they get all pissed off and fly by you like they're all that and a bag of chips!!
