    Default Some guy on the bike on Highway 1A

    You on the forums?

    After the run, both parties did a U-turn cuz they were far away from home. 5th gear, 260km/h. Haven't had a run like that for years! Funny thing is, the race didn't even start until both parties missed their turnoffs!

    Let's just say, from a standing start, bike always wins. A lot different from a roll!

    On a drive from Calgary to Vancouver a couple years ago I had a similiar experience. My M3 is no match for a 400hp Porsche, but at high speeds, I made a 750cc sportbike think twice.

    It was a very extended run, probably about 100km or so, and I probably hit as high as 140mph.

    You're a nut. I've never driven a car with snow tires on it, but I imagine the tread life isn't very long on dry pavement (not that any high performance tire is, but I would imagine snow tires are even worse)

    Probably a 600. It was even all the way up to that speed. I raced a 750 before on summer boost of 13psi, and we were even.

    You could've seen it in person at any of the trackdays and meets this year .

    Nothing special really, it's an average speed car, lots of cars can still beat me.
