all the time... If you want to have some fun with them race them the first time but stay right next to them or just a tad bit ahead of them. This works especially well if they are young kids or just think they have a fast sports car. After the first race stick around for a little bit and wait for the second race, as soon a they hit the gas simply walk off and leave them in the dust....
this is loads of fun for me as i used to be one of those mustang kids...

The problem with racing cars is that there breaking is so much better than a bike. I have to admit though I have taken the risk a couple of times and put them in their place. I just hope no one pulls out in front of me.

That's because they realize rather quickly that you are old. I think it's the way you sit hunch-backed and when you're leaned over your depends show out of the top of your jeans.

i love with cars but sometime when there a young kid they cant stay in there lane but that doesnt matter when your half a mile ahead of them. it get annoying when people think they can take a bike. i have a older pos and they still try to race me. most of the time ill take off on them and they usually wont screw with me anymore.

Breaking or braking? Because their BRAKING is in NO way better than a bike. Period. That is crazy. If a car is braking better than your bike you need to have it serviced. If you truly mean breaking, I would like to understand what you are trying to say because I don't understand.

YES! It almost seems like every fool with a diesel truck thinks it's a race car. They try to race me on my bike or in my Camaro.

They are? Unless you're talking about something with really good factory brakes or aftermarket work, many aren't so good. Car brakes fade quickly from high speed. I had to stop rather abruptly the other day, along with an SS Camaro, and I was able to out brake him easily.

That is just your skill! It's takes years to learn how to handle your bike on the streets.

LOL anybody can squeeze a lever.

But if we're talking about braking on a HD or some cruisers, then yeah not much happens when you grab a handful of brake. I had to panic stop on the Magna once and thought I was going to have to put my feet down to add some braking powa!
