So I'm leaving work, headed towards Telegraph on Eureka.* I leave a light at normal rpm, normal acceleration, when I hear (over my D&D pipe and through my ear plugs) this high winding engine sound.* I look over to see this dude in a 4 door Escort shifting into second like he's trying to break the shifter, then hit third like he's trying to put the shifter through the dash.* Slowly I started to inch on him, and as a shifted into 4th at 6000 rpm the margin only got bigger.
Seriously, what the fuck is with people?* Don't they realize that even a Road King will bust up 90% of the cars out there?

All the cars I use to smoke on my 9R back in the day... smoked many vettes, a viper once... whatever.* Plus nobody would go as fast on top end as I would... I barried the speedo on the 9R SOOOO many times!

they think that* they can out run a bike when you are not even trying. last year i had a guy do that and i was on my 450 nighthawk. i showed him that even a lowly 450 was too much for his escort

Awesome!!!* Happened to me all the time with my F4i... the VTX doesn't draw that attention... not that I want it.

My DRZ did it a few times, a 36HP dirt bike could still outlaunch 90% of cars up to street (semi) legal speeds.* at 80 plus I think an Ford Escort could have beat me.

The best one to date was on the Howard Franklin Bridge in Tampa, about 2.5 miles long.... rolled up next to a Ferrari and my buddy was on his R1, I on my F4i... at the count of 3 we all went... at 150+mph he started pulling away from me... it was awesome.*

I just remembered something.* I was down in Monroe on my last ride and was stuck at a red light, but the light was in like a residential neighborhood just before downtown Monroe.* I was sitting at the light and happened to look to my left because I caught something out of the corner of my eye.* It was some kid on a bicycle sitting next to me waiting on the light.* I looked at him, he nodded, I nodded, the light turned green and he took off down the road.* LOL
