It's not the cornering - it's the DRIVE out of the corners that gives ya' the "BOOYah!" feeling on a bike like that......

Excellent. Thanks for posting-up the comparo.

Cars generally do better in the corners and then get stuffed by the motorcycle's power-to-weight ratio when things straighten out. In any case there are too many variables to say one is "better" then the other. Bikes are simply more fun. They also take a lot more skill to make go fast than these modern coupes. Any tie wearing drone can get around fast in the Audi. Look at Buz.

And that's exactly why I'll need to upgrade to a John Cooper Works Mini before my next Auto-X outing. I need 200+ hp!

But the supercharged model jumps you up from G-Stock to D-Stock....

(or X-Prepared, if you just slap a turbo or supercharged engine in the car)

Have you ridden in a JCW Mini?

Arrange an appointment with your Chiropractor, massage therapist and orthopedic surgeon before you do.

A buddy took me to lunch a couple years ago, and when he ran over a coin on the road, I could tell it was a nickel.

The thing cornered so sharp, there was saliva on both side windows!
