    WRX vs 1450 H.D.

    Here it goes. I am heading home form work and the highway is closed due to high winds. I am sitting first in line to get back on the highway. At about 5 minutes to the I-10 being re-opened a H.D. comes around and parks next to me, driver gives me the look "like hell another import piece of ". Well the I-10 gets re-opened and he fires up as do I, cop moves over and he guns and gets on the on ramp first. So I figure I would give it a try and catch up. H.D. is at full throttle, I reached the top of 3rd on the on ramp and begin to catch up to him. In fourth I am getting real close. So we hit 5th and I catch up and I look at the speedo 122mph. He looks at his speedo and can not believe I am next to him so I give it some more gas and off I go to 136mph. I slow down and he cathces up. We talk and he asks "what is that" I tell him WRX and he tells me he could not belive I caught up so quick and passed him so easily, and give me the thumbs up. I ask him what ci his H.D. is and he says 1450 with screaming eagle fuel injection and vance and hines pipes. I tell him I would like to race from a stop. He says his bike ran "14.5" at the track and he has never lost to a "car on the street". So I figure I have a chance. We look around and the highway was clear as we were way ahead of anybody. We stop and he says he would call the count. He says 1-2-3 and off we go, 1st gear I already have half a car, 2nd a full car, 3rd and two cars it is. So I slow down again and he says "damm I spun and you left me" I respond it AWD and has a turbo. He laughs, says "I sould of known". We continue talikng for a while on the highway and we part ways, I would never would of thought he would ackowledge the loss. A good experience overall.

    Good Kill. Took me a little while to realize that HD meant Harley Davidson. I'm used to selling trucks and when I saw HD, i thought "Hevy Duty"

    thats good to hear, im really not a harley fan. why would you spend $20k on a bike that has 80 horses and weighs 600lbs when you can spend less than $10k on a sport bike with over 110 horses and weighs under 400lbs? HD's are for image conscious yuppies.

    I thought you were talking about Heavy Duty. I all the time get jackasses in big jacked up Duramax's trying to to show me how fast their trucks are.

    I'll admit it was a little noisy, but since we were the only one's on the highway we slowed down a lot to be able to talk.

    I think you mean "cc" and not "ci" otherwise his Harley would be powered by a 23.8-liter engine by calculation But in cubic inches, his engine would be 88.5. Sorry, I just pay attention to little details.
