Aerodynamics at work....most motorcycles hit a wall over 100mph. Not to mention a 1K hp + car will eat almost any bike.

Not a reasonable comparison. Even as stupid expensive as the H2 is, it is still probably 10x cheaper than that car.

Fast bikes are cool because they are CHEAP compared to cars.

They should do these comparisons on dollar per hp basis once in a while. The H2 is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ in bike terms but exponentially cheaper than that car. I guess for a power to weight ratio they were "similar" I suppose. Still bike aerodynamics suck above 100 and it gets exponentially worse for every mph faster you go.

"Fast bikes are cool because they are CHEAP compared to cars. "

I enjoy riding a bike, cars mostly feel like a necessity or work. I wish I enjoyed cars as much as I do motorcycles. The GTR will get you around the track faster no argument about it. You could argue cost per HP, but if I were a billionaire, I'd purchase that H2R before I even googled the GTR.

Here's the write-up on it. Looks like he ran against a McLaren and a Bugatti, too.

If you watch the take off the bike dogged the launch. If he would have had a good launch he might have pulled it off.... but not doubt that the GTR was reeling him in.
I'll try to find it

Billionaire huh, why not own an MotoGP bike for personal use and get a really fast bike and the ultimate experience.

I own a GTR and as much as I love it cause I can't ride anymore, I would want to ride more than own the car as well. But the car does come close to the enjoyment factor. Its the closest thing I have found to date. Don't get me wrong, it has a pucker factor in its own right and for some reason scarier than the bike ever gave me.

So what happens when you switch to 3rd gear at 145mph and the front end starts to come up.

Are those pretty wings computer controlled to bring the front back down or do you say, "Oh --------" and when you wake up you are walking in the clouds?

I have no idea how those work. Are they an advantage on a sport bike to the average guy or are they road rash assist ailerons over 60mph?

Everyone hates to compare bikes and cars, but I disagree not everyone rides bikes so its nice to see what cars have to do to beat us.

Incorrect,....go to any dragstrip, 1/2-mile, or 1-mile track in the country. , just look on any road race track and see how different lines change the drive just on the front straight. Guys with the exact same mods can be anywhere from .001 to 2-seconds+ off each other and 5-30mph on the big end...

I don't know why people keep saying that, it's not as easy as everyone thinks...it still takes a rider anyway you argue it..

But this was no dragstrip, was it? it was a street bike against a car in a straight line and was not even from zero. That is why I say anyone can go fast.

Of course in a dragstrip with a beast under your you have to know what you are doing.

Same applies,...doesn't matter if it's from a stop or roll. It's takes proper gear changes, rpm, clutch less shifts, body position, tuck, etc. etc..to go fast. It's not about just pinning the throttle and holding on...
