Um - only if you're trying to stop by dragging your feet....

You should be about equal - now granted, you've actually got to use the REAR brake too (even though some 'tards here seem to think it is completely superfluous)

Most of you seem oblivious to the fact that there are MANY cars and trucks in this town that will eat a 600 alive. A pretty good amount will tear a 1k a new . I know one that destroyed a turbo busa from a 60 roll. That's not nearly the quickest car in town (only 1016 RWHP).

I had an R1 laugh at the cobra. After I pulled a fender on him from a 40 roll, he stopped laughing, and you could see HUGE eyes behind his shield.

So, when a mustang, camaro, vette, sti, supra, etc, pull up on you, I wouldn't laugh just yet. Once you know what's under the hood, or already spanked him, go ahead.

If a neon challenges you (they used to ALL the time with the cobra), go ahead. Laugh until you fall off the bike. Those are the real .

Really multiple 1000 rear wheel cars? Just like that. I can guarantee the ratio of 1000 Horse power cars to bikes the bikes out number by far, it is rare.

The guys with real cars usually dont go picking on bikes. We would only wipe the floor with those that came up on us. Believe me, if you drive a bad car, more bikes come up on you than cars challenging bikes. Every bike thinks they can kick any cars . Harleys are especially bad at this. I would DESTROY them. I am talking 60-130 roll, and I would have 200+ feet on them. They are the Magnum of the bike world, lol. (I know there are some pretty mean Magnums, but there are a million with an exhaust that think they are BAD !)
