I see riders cutting in and out of traffic going to UH and going back home on I-10, i'm surprised stuff like that doesn't happen more often! Riders need to beware of cages!

and about the SLR, for a fact i know there are 2 in Houston, when my brother did valet parking at a cafe a regular there would drive his every once in a while and told him that he knew of 1 other. I honestly don't think theres more of them, just because of the limited production, but people move.

I'm too lazy to go look it up, but i'd bet that that F1 would walk just about every bike on the board (excuse the turbo busas) in top end.

The 600HP SLR McLaren Roadster even has a stock top speed of 192.

I agree. I used to dream of building fast cars (I'm a mechanic at heart), but anymore I prefer the 2 wheels, especially when speed is involved.

I had a Tahoe cut me off on Wallisville and Federal Rd. Then the dumbass tried to run me off the road after I passed him up and told him how he was #1.
He swerved over at me as I slowed for my turn and his mirror hit my helmet .. The dumbass broke his mirror over my helmet but it still scared the chit outta me..

looked like a teen driver to me.
