Default Dont race Superbikes!!

I have many really good stories where my M3 kicked some rears, but here is one where mine was kicked.

I was cruising down what is called Sea Point beach road. Its a road similar to our own marine drive. I stopped at the signal and gazed over to this beatiful super bike, a CBR 900. The guy looked at me and smilled. So right there i knew its on now. I revved my straigt six, he revved up his 900 cc's.

The signal turned green... and he was gone... My 0-100 time of 6 seconds was of no consequence, he was gone. Despite that i kept on pushing, and pushing down the narrow 2 lane road just missing the slow going traffic while seeing his small brake light in the distance. I started catching up to him, but i was doing 170 in a 50 zone. It got a bit scary but i got him... and passed him... waving. But that didnt change the fact that he left me for the dogs at the get away.

Moral of the story: If your car cant do 0-100 in 3 seconds, dont race a super bike. Its just embarrising.

I agree with you pal. Its not really easy racing with Super bikes. This was a CBR 900 imagine with the mighty Haya busa. It really does get embaressing when u get ur @#$ kicked by a biker

Cheers

even a 700/750 wud have taken the M3.

Moral of the story: If your car cant do 0-100 in 3 seconds, race with a V-twin.

Moral of the story "know your competition, before you race", i always do that and have never lost.

Ismart boy eh!!

Seriously, what were you thinkin man!!! That's a bloody 900cc bike with a power to weight ratio, twice as much as you think it is.
