Nice job. I got to play with a bolt on Z06 on the way home from work tonight (I heard a loud exhaust and the car seemed to be quick, but nothing special), but it wasn't really a close race. We would roll to 50-60 and go WFO. However, had we gone to LUDICRAS speed, he'd of ultimately pulled away due to gearing and aero's.

Bike: NONE! :o

Just do the math whatever you are racing (horsepower to weight ratio)

(oh, and one more thing, if the guy COULD afford a $100k car, I am sure that he also thinks simmilar to my thoughts above as he has to have some level of maturity, at least for most part, Paris Hilton type need not apply)
Thats bull shiser IMHO. Ive seen an oldish guy (say around 50ish) in a Ferrari convertible race a guy in a totally done-up RX-2 (dont let anyone fool you, those thigs FLY!) on the street. They were neck and neck until the corner, where the ferrari just DARTED around without slowing down at all. Fuck it was cool.

Middle aged men with too much money can just as easily become boy-racers when faced with a little competition. Ive had a few in v8's and WRX's challenge me at lights, sometimes more than one per day.

Maybe you need to take some testosterone supplements. I think having a set of functioning nuts would help you keep threads like this under control.

It's not that simple. Bikes usually have the better hp/weight ratio, still they get killed by cars with a lower hp/weight ratio. If the bike had a fairing that would completely enclose it shaped like a bullet then it would have the aerodynamic advantage.

Interesting. Guess there's a difference hanging out with the primodona's who get one to look cool vs hanging out with the guys who put'em on a track. I'm of the latter group. I miss NY.

The other night, I got my ass handed to me by a lexus, of all things...Mind you, it was country roads at night and I had my girl on the back, so I wasn't really pushing it. I'd say I was pushing about 70% as hard as I could, but this thing must've had Nitrous. He pulled away faster than I have ever seen any car before....
i just about never push hard when i am with a passenger. you just never know when they are gonna freeze or panic and make you crash... i would rather give up my pride than my skin...
