Last week this fool in a 05 cbr1000 with 2 riders pulls up next to me and says "wanna race?" I Knew i had no chance but i did have some mods and experience in lunching so i gave in. I ready myself for the green light and bam! green light and were off 75mph comes up lighting quick hit a perfect 2nd gear and wondering where the hondas at? check the mirror and see his behind quite a distance. reached 125 and slowed for the next light. Asked him what happened? and says he didnt engage the clutch properly "whatever" i said.Whatever the excuse i smoked him and smashed his ego in front of his buddies eyes.Good lesson learned dont mess with a ninja no matter what its size...........anyhow i check the performance of the cbr and theres not a lot of difference between a zx6r and cbr1000 in the 1/4 mile run is it really that slow ?or is the ninja that fast?
