I got beat by a Viper with my 2000 ZX-6R. It was a rolling start from 65mph up to about 140mph. He dropped to 4th and I did the same and he walked past me. The time it takes for the Viper to drop from 6th to 4th is much less than the time it took me to hit my gear shift twice to get it into 4th gear. This way...he already had the jump on me.... if I could have dropped to 3rd fast enough I believe it would have been dead even...until about 150mph then he would be long gone. The Viper is a very impressive car. I've had the opportunity to drive it many times and the torque is truly unbelievable.

I had an experience with a beautiful blue Viper with the white racing stripes once while riding my ZX-9R. While riding to Muncie on 35, a Viper came up on me and blew past me (I was riding at about 60 mph, he probably past me at 80+ mph). So I then returned the favor, passing him at around 100 mph. We kept going back and forth like this for a while, passing each other, then slowing back down to about 75 - 80 mph, then passing again. I had dropped back about 15 car lengths from him, and was about to just let him go, when I decided to make one more, insainly high speed pass. I dropped it into 3 and gunned it, he obviously realized what was going on and floored his car a second later, I pulled almost even with him when his speed finally kicked in... he remained just in front of me for what seemed like forever, I couldn't pass him, but he couldn't leave me either. It stayed like this through 4th gear, but once I hit 5th (somewhere around 150 mph), I caught him and passed him rather easily.

After I let off the throttle he rocketed past me for the last time, my whole body was shaking from the adrenaline pumping through me so fast!!! I decided I'd proven my point, the whole thing was just a bit scary, but man what a f*cking rush!!!/images/icons/smile.gif

I dragged an Acura NSX from a stand still for about 8km. (5 miles)I toasted him off the line and stayed about ten bike lenghths in front of him till I shifted in to sixth gear about 140-145 mph. then he caught me. he was right behind me when we both had to brake hard to make a sharp upcomming curve. He was probably about to overtake me, thank gawd for the corner. After the turn I gave him the head nod and let him take off. I had to calm myself down, way too much adrenaline. It was this day that I fell in love with my Kawi all over again.

65 4th gear your turnin around 7000 rpm a little low when racing a viper.try that with him again from 2nd or 3rd and u may leave him sitting. your bike doesnt start to work until at least 9000 . i always like to get up around 10000 in that situation.remember a car does not need to rev as high to make good horsepower.

A friend and I were riding Maricopa (Cali) and were confronted by a VT Laborghini in the twisties. I had no problem killing him in the corners and I know he was trying because my friend was on a old Katana 750 and was being pushed hard by the Lambo. Once we got to the straights my friend was passed patheticaly and I could here the beast from hell coming up behind me like I was in his way up till about 158 where I pretty much top out. By the time I could read VT on the door of this awsome Blue and silver V12 he was gone with a wave. We saw him later at the gas station and he said he would never be able to catch me on the twisties but new he need not comment on the straight away. When I asked how fast he got her up too I got a Yuppie smerk from the guy that acted as a reminder that most the people that you see in $300,000 cars are fricken KOOOOOOOKS!!

I could just be jealous though.

I'll tell you one thing though, bike freak and all that I am, if someone were to trade me a Viper for my bike, I'd probably have to take the trade, that is one beautiful f*cking car!!!





Besides... I could sell it and buy like, 4 new bikes!/images/icons/wink.gif
