I have had several fast cars ones that I think could possibly keep up with a bike. What I don't understand is, slow cars trying to race bikes. I was riding yesterday and I noticed a BMW 325 trying to keep up with me and race me on the highway????? WHY? a week ago a Chrysler 300 tried to race me?? are these people just complete idiots or what?:sing

This is the best a completely stock Honda Civic EX, not even the super race mod exhaust..........Anyone else get this crap?:confused:

Nope but it happens to me all the time. People here in Salt Lake are all about hopped up diesel trucks and they try to race me all the time. I usually let them pull on me a little bit to give some hope them I turn the throttle and its over. A guy in a Chevy Cavalier revved at me at a light the other day. I just shook my head.

:nocontrol:nocontrol:nocontrol Dude I know exactly what you mean, I hate it when annoying little kids tell me to do wheelies right in the middle of town..yeah good idea. On the other hand, I'd watch out for some cars.. especially new vette's.

The cars I am talking about are stock as a rock 150 hp econo boxes I seriously think they are joking. If they are not joking they need to head back to the nut house.

i drive a 300, I can tell you that when I get off my bike and into my car I get depressed! there is no way those cars can keep up!
The only cars that have ever kept up with me were a new Viper and a twin turbo Porsche

If some one wants to try and keep up they're welcome to. But I wont go out of my way for a race. Besides they usually know that its over when I finally shift for second

I was riding along a few weekends back, minding my own business going 70mph down the highway and pass a toyota corolla, the dumb b*tch in the car hits the gas and then hovers right next to me, I speed up a bit, she speeds up. Finally I had enough of her shit, dropped the hammer and waved bye bye.

She wasn't checking the bike out, she wasn't checking me out, she was just being a pain in the ass. I don't get it...:nono

I really havnt gotten many of those, none that i remember anyway. The only time i thought i had somethin like that happen was when a kid in an evo tried to go and after i walked him he came up and said "i love those bikes, just wanted to see how fast it reallly was"

I'm in my late 30's now. I don't need to be first to the next set of lights anymore. I save that for track days where it's a more even playing field. Once, I was riding in trafic next to a young guy in a "civic like" car. He kept rocketting to the next set of lights and I would eventually end up beside him lol. He called over to me and said "lets go". I told him "unless it's another bike I wont even waste the gas".

I had a guy pull up to me in the walmart parking lot in a late 90's V6 firebird. Had a bad exhaust leak and sounded like shit, and asked me if I wanted to run them. I dont get it. My charger is slow and it would of beat the shit out of that car

hahaha I know exactly what you mean
Even when I get off my bike and into my 03 Mach 1 mustang (340hp/360tq with some minor boltons) the bike just seems to pull SO much harder, it really is depressing :usa
