and as I said in another thread "all that money on your car and my stock bike is still faster" so even after you build your engine there will be thousands of stock bikes that will be able to blow your doors off as they leave you in their dust.

but then again you talk fair playing field then you post a car with thousands of dollars worth of mods for performance vs a stock bike which looked like a 600cc if your going to talk stock vs stock at least get the two most comparable which are the viper vs busa and even then the only vids up are questionable because they are not timed runs


Uh.... You're the one that presented the situation to me about a modded car vs. a stock bike...

Okay stock vs. stock, a stock bike puts does a quarter mile in 10 secs. Who doesn't know that bike is faster than a car? I never mentioned anything about performance parts in my car to beat bikes. I just wanna beat cars. Lmao.

So to you it's still a fair playing field to race a bike vs. a car. Again, LOL. I haven't seen any competitions where they put car's with bikes. Why? Because of the disadvantages car's have against bikes (In terms of speed and turns). Bikes have a faster 0-60, faster 60-0, incredible turning capabilities. So if you want to continue bench-racing with your stock bike and complain about me having tasteful mods then that's still not quite fair, but hey, you got a bike so you're faster! :rolleyes:


funny how you avoided the fact the stock bikes are still blowing away your moded car's time (in video).

if your going to try and show really close times then look up the supra 1000hp + it actually does come close to beating busa's times and does in one race except that was not a busa's best time though.

and yes when i'm on my bike leaving the moded cobra in my dust doing 180km/h on the twisting highway where they can't top 150km/h because of the curves that does make me faster. and still has nothing to do with me thinking a audio system so loud it can bust your ear drums is stupid and by what you describe your only buying a fairly standard audio system not the 45 speakers/woofers/tweeters/no room for luggage boom box dummymobile.

I'm not avoiding anything. I'm not gonna post a Supra because that's not what I myself drive, I know how fast Supra's are but they aren't me, I chose a Honda because that's what I drive, 4 cylinder motor putting down 600HP, that's more than a lightly modded V8. And I don't intend on racing bikes with my car. Why? Cause it's a Honda vs. a Motorcycle. I can still see that you're very keen on trying to tell me that it's fair for you, but on the other hand I don't see how it is for me. I only brought that video up cause you're talking smack about people who invest in their civic's and them being beaten by a bike, it would be sad if you DIDN'T beat me in you're bike. I just gave you a video to show you wrong. Yea not all cars can beat bikes and you'll rarely ever find one that will. All in all if I was ever going to race a bike, it would be with ANOTHER bike. I don't want to really get into an stupid arguement (I guess it's too late now) about some guy that's satisfied about beating me with a motorcycle. Off the lot you already do 10's in the quarter mile, where's the fun in that? Off the lot I do 16's, but after my tuning and what not and be able keep up with you, that makes me feel all the better. So when you're getting throttle happy racing car's with your bike and win and feel good then congrats, you beat a car with your bike! And then when winter comes and you need your car, things are alot different right? Extremely different.

As for race times, you can go youtube 9 second civic and watch all the results that come up. Still not fast enough to keep up with a bike for you? Wanna try 8 second's? I don't intend to build it to that extent, just to prove a point.

Exactly, in my post I said I had 1 15" inch sub, and the rest were door speakers. Yea like the one's that come with the car when you buy them... only mine are aftermarket. So my system wont break the 100 dB level, but it's close. Only weighing an extra 90 pounds in my trunk, It's like having a home quality surround system in my car. I don't drive around with my bass up everyday all day like a jackass, just on the occasion when me and the friends are out driving around and I see someone wanting to challenge me cause I'm in a low Civic with rims and CF spoiler. They rev, and I turn up my bass and watch them waste the rubber on their tires, or someone that has bass is playing their's as loud as they can I just turn mine up to show em they ain't tight. Just a situation where I use it. Any other day it's at a moderate level where I can enjoy my music.

So if you want to keep arguing with me about racing car's vs. bike's and it's fairness in it, etc. then you can send me a message. Other than that let's just stay on topic.

your still missing the point a stock busa is doing high 7's which is still faster than your VERY modified hondas in other words your best examples are still falling short no matter how you put it.

and your cars doing the 8 second 1/4 mile will be dead slow for highway speeds since they are geared for fast runs while the stock bike is still doing 299km/h(limited by factory) unlimited far surpasses 300km/h and guess what the bike only costs about $15,000 US new.

as for fairness your the one that keeps bringing it up. your the first to even mention it being an unfair competition which it is and why the saying "all that money in your car and my stock bike is still faster" is true. for true speed and blowing the doors off other vehicles bikes are by far the better choice and much more economical way of attaining real speed. why I brought it up is people like you who talk big about blowing other vehicles doors off make me laugh when there's thousands of stock bikes out there that will easily blow your doors off saying its unfair is funny since your little ego trip about being faster than other cars seems to dismiss that their car may not have the same parts and money invested in them. there's always an excuse from big talkers when another vehicle is proven faster "your Honda vs a formula 1= "thats not fair" yet its still car vs car" or "your honda vs a supra or a viper= "thats not fair" yet its again car vs car" no matter how you look at it there are much faster cars out there than what your building its one thing to say " its going to be a fast car and I'm going to enjoy it. vs the ego trip "I'll leave you in my dust" because someone faster than you will tell you quite clearly your slower!
