    Re: What thought it was faster then you today

    I've never had a car that would have been close try to burn some rubber. I did have a Harley rev his engine and try to launch at the stop light. I let him start the launch and I just watched a bit. Then instinct came in and I did the best launch I have ever done on my 09 fz6. Jeez, the fz6 has some power. That Harley was so slooooow!

    Heck, when I still had my 2005, Kawasaki KLR 250, I raced a Harley from a stop and he JUST pulled away from me, slightly...

    Re: What thought it was faster then you today

    It all has to do with thier gear boxes being ment for crusing speeds. Sportsters are a bit different but for the most part harleys arr not built for fast times lol.

    On the flip side i had a 2018 civic blast by me the other night so i blasted past him at 210kmhr or so my speedo said. Still not 100% sure its always giving me the right speed reading. But thats what i saw when i blasted past him. That really deflated his sails cause when i slowed down a few seconds after he slowed right the heck down to average speed lol
