Last night at 3 am, highway completely empty..............

I've been itching for some adrenaline lately, and it came in the form of 3 2005 GSXR1000.

I saw them play around so I decided to join.. I caught up to them at 180 km/h and they slowed down to wait for me :irock: I was in the middle lane, 2 bikes on both sides and one up front.

They all pop a wheelee at the same time and take off and and I'm keeping up pretty good "they were not pushing it" we kept this formation for a while until we saw a car ahead.

Next episode was max out my speedometer.. I took off on a long straight stretch and the bikes beside me, I redline 5th at 230 km/h... 6th at just over 5500 I'm bouncing of 260 km/h then one of the bikes just took of like a rocket at this speed :OMG: .

we all slowed down after and they gave me thumps up and one guy clapped for me :clap: .

"aYeeeeeaaah"

That's it? :lame: Fastest I've ever taken any car was 245kph. :shiftdrive:

I've driven through TO so I know what you're talking about on long deserted highways.

:lol: They definately weren't trying (as you stated). 600cc bikes can barely beat a 450rwhp 350Z...so, figure 1000cc bike vs. a (nearly) stock 350Z. They can do close-to, if not, 200mph.

Definately consider 1000cc bikes the best bang for your buck vehicle there is, ~9's in the 1/4 mile stock, and you can beat just about anything on the road stock.

Congrats on reaching 160+mph though! :clap:

Thanks :cheers: .It worked this time, it's so hard pushing the Z to this speed I've tried it several times and I can only manage 140 like SmoothZ, It was the right gear and right take off that got me to 160.

That was a night for GoingDeep's Z .. he definately would've gave them a run, I wish I was pushing 600 hp yesterday :banghead:


I think I'll do something stupid.. 600 hmmm

120?!?! you havent gone 120? the z gets there in a matter of seconds....

I'm tellin you! The roads are beyond shitty here, and any time that I wanna see speeds like that, people put their asses in front of you to prohibit it.

Drivers have zero common sense when it comes to seeing a car approach them at a higher rate of speed than they are traveling. Just today on the way to work, I come around a sweeping one-lane right hander, and some dumb broad in a BMW sees me in her rearview, and HITS HER BRAKES. No one in front of her. I guess her reaction to "slow me down" was to hit her brakes? Fuggin idiots..

Don't you have access to a runway? did anyone see the video of the 350Z racing a small twin pistons plane?

You should make use of your job for fun and hit the runway :biggrin:

"DiRN - I'm sorry for hitting your building with my Z - I was just trying to break 120mph" - Man I can hear that phone call from here & I'm a long way from you all :werd:

Here's how I picture it going.

[SETTING]Me in a cab on Long Island

Driver: Did you hear about that car that hit a building by Teterboro Airport?
Me: What building?
Driver: Do you know the area?
Me: Yeah, I work across the street from the airport.
Driver: It was some building across 46. Are you familiar with that area?
Me: Yeah, my building is across from the airport on 46.
Driver: Well they make clothes there or something.

That's how I found out about the plane. Haha.

It happened back in February. You can read our thread about it here.

Fortunately Jet wasn't flying the plane. It's just the airport he flies out of
