Strangest 2 hours.
Went to work, got off and headed up to Virginia city truck route... pretty much about 50 corners and 4 miles or so. One of the least enforced roads and perfect road.
Headed up, was sitting at the start of it waiting to make sure no cops or semis were coming out of it and a Lotus Elise got the the end headed the other way and flipped around to go back. So me and my friend turned em on and gave chase. He started real slow for about 20 feet then gunned it, beofre i got on it he was about 200-250 feet in front of me. This road is all corners, maybe one 150 yard straight on it... Dented his lead on the faster corners and the straight but all the technical off camber corners he pulled me. I have raced and destroyed 500HP vipers and a porsche opr two, but this Elise would have only gotten further ahead if it had bene an endurance race, i was on it. We stopped at the end and he had bald rear tires and coulda gone faster... But in my defense i have a leaking fork...leaking on my brakes so they are only good for about 90%, plus a slightly bent rim waiting to be changed so my left hand turns were noticably off par for what i can normally do. I think with my bike fixed and his new tires i woulda at least closed up if not been able to sit behind him or get him on the straight.
MAD respect for that car.. $47K out the door and it WILL keep up or beat 99% of street bike riders. Granted had i had a bike like a CBR1000RR i wouyld pulled more in little areas and kept up, i left my friend behind on his 2006 CBR1000RR on my Z1000 that has no seocnd gear due to a bernt shift fork... couple turns i coulda used the extra power of 2nd gear.
Then the bad part of my 2 hours happened... the bike was parked on a hill and it fell over. I was so very mad. Even with frame sliders the handle bars dented the tank and i broke a blinker cover and scratched my tail and bar end and clutch lever.....So crappy. No paint off the tank so i am gonna go talk to a paintless dent repair and see what they can do to fix that... the rest is half cheap. May just repaint the bike to fix the tail...new paint is always fun.
