Just envious here and I don't mind so much getting my doors blown off by another Mustang.

I don't envy spending a house payment on tin and rubber. Like I said before I have a 1000cc to get my kicks off on.

Well, I don't have a bike.
When I get on one any good sense I might have just flies out the door, so I'm much safer in the car.

Plus, I have already spent way more than a house payment on the car on a few occasions.

That's why I waited till I was almost 30, I started on a 600. I'm big into the science of riding. Actually have all Keith codes books, and was saving for track day school before we found out we were having a baby. Those books i read can teach car drivers alot too, how to read track lay outs, survival reactions. Things I think are universal.
Never been a big fan of huge payments.. $350 is the most I've ever paid for a car payment..

Don't get me wrong the newest 5.0L is a fantastic car all around.. I read somewhere ppl are already swapping them into SN95 cars.. That's what I'm talking about. I plan on a 351w in the future, but the coyote swap peaks my interest..

A liter bike bike requires more respect then parents and grandparents together.

Re: drag racing tonight

Already had a bike. It was great. But in the long run with more modding the car will be faster. Plus I have a cage around me to protect me.

Whats funny is people around here don't run there mouth about having a 1000CC bike. There is several cars that will spank them. Specially a older 1000. The 3 fastest bike around here is 2 Busa's and one ZX14 that all three are turbo'd. All three have trapped over 170mph in the 1/4.

I can't speak for anyone else, but it took a 725hp GTO to be in the same car length as up to about 160mph, after that he could not stand it... 440lbs + 150lbs + 148rwhp = I win.. I don't ride like that anymore though.. Have a daughter to raise, biggest thrill in of my life, and I repo'd cars for several years too.. 😜

Power/weight ratio on a bike is hard to beat. But there is cars making over 1100whp here. As well in Houston/Austin. They even DD these cars. Hell some Evo'd making around 800whp. All them weigh less then 3000lbs. Make a crap load of TQ. I watched a 240SX with a 2JZ swap out run a busa from 60-180. It was pretty impressive.

Exactly. Takes a whole lot of HP to keep up with a liter or big bore bike. There is a new Busa coming and a new ZX14 that's going to be stupid fast.. Costs alot of money for 725-1100 HP(car+mods) V. 15k bike right off the showroom floor. It's just my opinion man, I like the riding on the edge feeling of a big bike.. Mines old school, carbed, no TC, or stability cont, no ride by wire, race style rear sets no creature comforts.. RR =Race Replica
