What a odd story....newsflash, motorcycles are fast. Really fast. Most motorcycles make cars feel lame and slow in comparison. Yay motorcycles.

Off to one side slightly but still more or less on topic: wasn't Romania the only country whose emissions regs were so lax that H-D could claim the VR1000 was street-legal there? They should have used one of those. Or maybe that meant that the plane would have won...

Yeah, but there would also be the ancillary "heats" so to speak... who'd get herpes, syphillis, aids, etc faster?

Could not. It's a simple question of weight ratios! A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.

"Let's do a Bike vs. Bike next. Say, ...um a Street Rod and Suzuki's M109."



How about a round-robin format with an Interceptor, a Concours, and an SV-650?

This does open up some possibilities - M109 vs ME-109, Honda Hurricane vs Hawker Hurricane, Yamaha Venture vs Lockheed Ventura, Buell Lightning vs P-38 Lightning...
