^ O.k. (i agree) but that guy on the r1 looked like he topped out at 184 max.That ls1tt had to been going at least 200 m.p.h.

It's intended to show how fast the car is at top speed. I doubt if that car could beat the R1. How many here have topped out their R1? 181mph is not that hard to reach for the liter bike.

a liter bike is not hard to pull away from. There are many cars that can do that. A bike is also aerodynamically challenged at higher speeds compared to a car.

give props where its due.

with a poser on it.

No doubt that volvette is fast but the rider wasn't trying to pass the volvette in the beginning. If he did, volvette would take awhile to catch it. Shoulda use a kawi ftw.

There are cars out there that could beat bikes but are a rare gems. Most people that are willing to race are those that have add on performances parts. I have tried to get an Enzo to race me once but the lady look at me like I am from outer space.

aerodynamically challenged? I have studied a little aero, not much but I am curios of why or where you get that info? I know the fundamentals, the less surface area and more streamline, the less resistance. Are you talking about z axis?
