That's messed up.

My actual response would probably be much like most people on here that'll agree with me by saying, "It all depends on the driver." This question is much like that video that was posted where the R1 raced and "lost" to the Supra. But um, with that evidence, I'd probably say yes, the Kat can take the 12R (with no offense meant to big-boned persons ).

people it's a joke !!! n: I know there's no way a zx12 is not gonna beat a kat off the line with 2 riders of equal skill.. as much as I love kats, yes I know this, but with this guy on board that ninja, the kat's got a fighting chance

Figured that much man. I'm still trying to figure out if he had to have the suspension adjusted for his big-bonedness?

I would've figured he have chosen a crusier instead. Most people that I know who ride or want to ride that are big usually say they'll stick to crusiers.

My buddy's Supra was trapping 150.

And sonofabitch, how much cattle had to die to make that suit?

ok i have personally riddent that exact year zx12r and even with that guy on it, it still has a good chance at beating a tuna 600. and if he just leaned forward the front end would have a hard time coming up so he could jsut give it gas and hes gone.
