Was on my way home from the gym yesterday and saw a new model Vette waiting at a light to turn in my direction. Only had one run with a Vette so I'm always down for the opportunity. The Vette I raced was a ZO6 with headers, exhaust and a tune and I beat him pretty good.
Anyways I'm doing about 25 in a 45 hoping he would catch up but he wasn't showing interest so I began to speed up. Was doing about 45 when a Suzuki GSX-R pulles up to me and starts reving. Yes!!! I slow to about 42 pop it in second and just start to pull on him. Put about a car and a half and he shuts down. I slow and he goes up to my window with a look of amazment on his face and gives me a thumbs up. My first run with a bike like that so I didn't know what to expect. It had to be a 600 the way I pulled on him but no # was stickered. thanks for listening.

It had to be a Katana, I've pulled on a Katana on the highway with my stock Z, we were going 100 mph to start with, so my torque halped me pass him. GSX-R's are fk'n fast, even the GSX-R600 needs at least 500+ rwhp for you to keep up.

Nice kill

I had a GSX-R 750 so I'm pretty familiar with that bike. Don't think it was A Katana. It had to be a 600 but there were no stickers with #'s on them.

Nice... I've downed a few bikes from a roll. All small CC ones. I've also had my a$$ handed to me (expectedly) by a couple of 1000+CC bikes.

Was running with 3 2005 GSX-R1000, they popped wheelees at 160 mph and disappeared.

I think you would've destroyed the Katana, but since you said you gained on him slowly so it might've been a 600.

Can't wait for my Turbonetics ST... you'r giving me hope 

Bike---->:eek:wned:

Nice kill. I must add that as a past owner of 7 sport bikes including a GSXR-600 and a GSX1300R Hayabusa, I would never even try to race one, not even a 600. Even 600's these days far out class pretty much any street cars available, F/I or not. You either have enormous balls or don't know better lol.

But hey you do have a SC and you have bike experience so that makes the kill even sweeter. I bet the dude was stunned when he lost to a car. Good job!!

I'll race any **** body as long as the enviorment is right because Its and uncomparible rush. He came from behind me and gave me some revs. I downshifted and we went. He was as surprised as me and even gave me a thumbs up.

He is S/C'd though. Very far from a stock track Z.

You always have a shot at a bike.. if the guy can't ride... But an R6 with a sprocket and some lowering straps can run 10 second 1/4 miles (in the 9s with the right rider)., and the gixxer 6 isn't any slower...

I thikn I'd cry if I ever got pw3nd by a car, tho. Of course, I haven't quite figured out the new bike, so I suppose there's a chance...
