So today I took the bike out for a little spin today in "Mexico". I decide to go on the usual loop I do which include getting on the highway going down a couple of exits and coming back on the main roads.

As I am cruising down towards the highway I see a pair of HIDs coming after me like a man would chase down a midget after stealing his PSP out of his pocket. He pulls up along side me gives me a rev and a thumbs up. As the light turns green he takes off onto the on ramp, I stay close behind.

As the highway opens up I pull up along side and stay in 2nd to see what he will do. He lined up as gave me the nod as it was on, I take the jump letting him hear the roar of the full Akrapovic race exhaust. I have about a fender on him until about 120. The sweet whine of the supercharged LS motor soon turned into the 600+ horsepower shooting out of his exhaust as he passes me at 135 and starts pulling. We shut down as I hit ~145, I pull along side give him a thumbs up and he takes the next exit.

All in all these cars are sweet and I've never really had the chance to really see how the bike would do against a fast car. The ZR1 is such a sick car.


CLIFF NOTES: Raced a ZR1. It was sweet, even though I lost.

Sorry for long post.

Yes I do not like doing it, but it was kind of hard to pass up a chance with it considering it's my one of my dream cars. The guy who is tuning my bike next week is apparently in a local club that goes around to a couple of tracks around the area and he is giving me information about it so im definately going to start with that.

You only need to crank it up if you're always on the highway haha unless you have slicks. 7k in 3rd and it'll still spin the tires like it's not even trying if you mash the gas

kinda true. altho its fun on any sportbike, a highly modded car like that would smoke a 600. on a 1000 its a different story.

only time i raced a car on the hwy was with an EVO7 and he was barely keeping up with me around 140...
