beat a Crotch rocket?
ok, so my car has been down, for a while... waiting on the crank
about Sept of 2010, i was on my way home from work. it was on a weekend around 6-7ish PM. not dark yet, but it was starting to get there, clear day.
for those in Houston, was coming north from the Gulf Freeway, coming up on the South Beltway, and there is an Enterance ramp. Right after Dixie Farm over pass. or is that the HOV lane enterance?
now that i got it set up:
I saw a Bike coming up the ramp, i thought it was a 1000, might have been a smaller one, but he was hauling some ass coming up on the ramp, so i accelerated to match him. He didn't see me (unless in his mirrors) and was about 20 ft in front of me one he was on the freeway. once he got on the freeway he really starting twisting the throttle. By this time i was really close to wide open, if not all the way into it just trying to catch up with him. He heard me coming up, by now i was one car leanth behind him. he turned and looked at me as we had switched lanes (i went to the right as he went left, and i was about to take an exit), and at that moment i had to let off in order to exit, i had no idea how fast i was going, but the exit i was taking had about 1/4 mile to slow down South Beltway East, and he showed no signs of slowing down till i lost Line of sight.
now, i'm putting down about 485RWHP N/A at this point in time, in an 05 modded LS2 stroked to about 400 or 402. and i felt i was pulling on him. although he could have been chicken, or just leading me on...
anyone have this experiance with bikes? think it was a 600 or larger?
i had an 08 600 GSXR, and i don't think it was as fast as my car, however my ZX-14 would leave it easy... I've never had anything in between
