the truck driver off, he starts to change lanes while still staying next to the biker and i guess they were talking to each other for a few miles. then, you see the bike kinda stand up and kicks the truck. by this time im right behind the truck and i can see him grabbing for something. and thru the dark tint i could make out the shape of a bat. haha, i didnt miss anything so i tried to keep up with the truck while he tries to catch the bikes. but they were already gone by then.

I cant say ive not thought about kicking some cars when they cut me off but never would have gone through with it.......just not worth it. esspecially in this case where the rider was at fault for starting this......

lets hope its not someone on here

ok, 0-60 for mclaren is 3.1sec and quater mile is around 10sec with speed of 140+mph

your 0-60 is 3.6 sec and top speed of about 145mph. There is no way you can run away from that car, mayn.

it was probably one of those new two seater SLs.

i meant to say that mclaren can reach your top speed in 10 seconds... How long does it take for you to reach your top speed? On my bike the top is 100mph and it takes about 15 minutes of full throttle acceleration

talking about stupid riding, two chicks in an infinity where waving in and out of trafics to catch up with me on my way to galveston last saturday. once they did, they traveled next to me at a relative constant speed fior a while. then I started to wave in and out and a moderate speed. of course they couldn't let it go and gave me chase. Eventually I just let them go once I got to 100 mph. there was a lot of trafic and they had 4 wheels to steer and brake with, from my understanding of the dynamics of moving bodies they have a small advantage.

When I tended bar in Rice village there was a guy with a McLaren who would come in pretty regularly. Older guy, probably 60-65.

I think they only run about half a mil. though.
