Here's the video:

A stock Porsche GT3 runs Road America, one of the largest and most storied road race tracks in the US, in 2:36. I ran my 600cc SportBike in 2:28. 1000's run by non-factory pros can easily break the 2:20 mark, and factory pros low 2:teens, all on Supersport-legal bikes.

At my hometrack, GIR, which is a small twisty track, R-compound shod race prepped Vette's run 1:08's. I ran 1:08's on my 600 but the track is configured with an additional slow speed turn for cycles, meaning I was at least 2 seconds quicker apples-for-apples.
I lose.
