Default NSX in the rear veiw.

I was at a light . As I wait , I see the nice color of some bright HID'*. This was a nice car . It was yellow. He looked at me and I nodded. He out his window down and said "wanna go for it?" I revved my 12.4 to 1 engine. He revved his V-6 and the light changed. Needless to say somewhere around 148 , I lost him . I hit 150 and let the gas go . Slowed down and he caught up around 65 . As he looked at me in amaze , I pulled away like a bat out of hell.
I love sport bikes.

I've got 100.3 HP for the bike . It weighs 415 wet ( oil,gas and coolant) ans I'm 170lbs.
Thats a total of 100.3 HP for only 585 lbs. The jet kit ( carb mod) really kicks in at 8k + rpm'* The bike goes up to 14500 b4 redline. And can top it ourt at around 165 according to the dyno. But then again , I had them stop at 14000 rom , so the bike had a decent 1000 left . Tires are rated 200+
It'* fun and I get about 1 1/2 weeks of going to work and back for 7.00 US...
If you dont have one , get one.

Sportbikes are a riot....since i bought the Ducatti ..last year i`ve had a blast everytime i climb on You don`t realize how fast you`re going cuz who in da hell has time to look down at the speedo..but when you do and your past 170mph you go ...and try for more j/king....the fun part is not much of anything on four wheels can beat you..( except the cops..radio..lol )

I have only once ever seen a car beat a sport bike. I was watching a special on street racing and I am not sure what kind but a car beat the bike in the 1/4 mile, mind you he was firing nos through every gear.
