Being Stupid
« on: April 20, 2017 - 12:44:55 AM »
I always get challenged by road bikes, and built Harleys. At the worst, I can stay with them.
But, if the guy wrecks, and dies, racing me, then I get charged with manslaughter I guess.
So I'm going to try to quit racing road bikes.  Usually the guy is surprised I'm next to him,
and a couple have got wobbly or missed a shift, and came close to losing control. So,
NO MORE RACING MOTORCYCLES! LET THEM THINK I'M TOO SCARED TO RACE THEM!
72 Cuda, owned 25 years. 496, with ported Stage VI heads, .625 in solid roller, 254/258 at .050, 3500 stall, 3.91 rear. 850 Holley DP, Reverse manual valve body.
Up to 4000 RPM, Warp Speed, Up to 5000, Rediculous Speed, Up to 6000 RPM, Ludicrous Speed!

1999 Trans Am, LS1, heads, cam, headers, stall, etc! Love to surprise the rice rockets with this one. They seem so confident, then it's "what the heck just happened?"

good thinking, some of these bikers (ricers) have such little experience and powerful bikes I just steer clear

yep, they are use to leaving every car behind on the road, and then when one is next to them, or ahead, they
get in unfamiliar territory.
