Obviously you don't know any rape victims. Jesus, if all you want to do is beat everybody out there, get a Veyron.

I had a 600 GSXR, a CBR1000rr, a Honda Blackbird and an Aprilia Tuono Factory. They all ran in the 10's and our cars are no match.

barring the possibility that it was powered by briggs and stratton, i would have to quote Ron White and say, "apparently, this guy had a LOT to live for." regardless, it's still not a bimmer...

my buddie had a 2005 gto with a sts turbo setup - the car made 500 rear wheel HP and 550 ft-lbs at the tire on 8psi... thats the only car i've ever driven that gives bikes a run for the money - it even beat up on a few 600's

He counted to 3 with his fingers and we both "Gunned" it. He had me for like 3 seconds, and then I caught up and eventually passed him. We got up to 138mph. (Yes, I made sure there was no cars and no cops) he never caught back up with me. Did he not gas it all the way, or did I kick his ass?
I think he realized that he was on a bike and in a more vulnerable position.

No kidding. My CA gave me a e90 328i loaner the other day while my tints were being installed. I was pleasantly suprised by its quickness.

P.S. Apparently the spell checker doesn't recognize the word suprised.

Try Kingda Ka it's like 128 mph in 3.5 sec. The wind is no joke.

Also, the wind isn't too bad until around 150 if you are wearing leathers and then it is only because it buffets the helmet.

OP: He was messing with you. Sorry.
uhh, you've had your bike up to 175 MILES PER HOUR?? when i said weak top end, it takes awhile for a bike to get up to 175... as for the wind not being bad at 150mph, don't care how much you weigh, you're facing A LOT of wind resistance, gonna have to pull out the BS flag, but i get the feeling you may have been talking about KPH...

i've been riding a lot of years, and i'm no angel on the road, but i have never gotten my bike up to the 175mph range... that's just idiotic on city streets... then again, i live in los angeles, kinda hard to get empty road like that around these parts...

Uhhh, yes. Aprilia Factory race mapped with open carbon fiber cans...and believe me, it doesn't take long to get to past 175. Now, if you are talking roll on power over 135-140, yeah, it isn't as strong as I would like, but I gear for low end power.
If you know how to race tuck, the wind resistance really isn't that bad...you can even gain a couple mph top speed just by lifting your butt out of the seat a couple inches and bettering the aerodynamics. Also, I ride in full race leathers, not a hoodie and jeans, so the fit is tight and that cuts WAY down on wind resistance. So, tuck away your BS flag.
Also, top speed runs are saved for the autobahn on Sundays when traffic is low...I would never run near that hot on a street with traffic.
