Well, a friend of mine has a 600cc Katana. Pretty sweet bike.
Been talking about some friendly racing. Nothing hardcore competitive. Nothing from a red light or anything like that. More should I say, some open highway play.
Well, I got out of work early today, and who do I run into on my way out? My friend with the bike! Soooooo!
We're talking, and decide to hang out for a bit. He's got the bike with him, and obviously I have my daily driver! So, we decide to go to a local park. So, we hop on the highway and it was all fun from there on.
Really was hard to determine if the bike was really faster or not. I'm sure from a dead start, it would trounce me, but once moving... 2nd gear... Like 30mph and up, it was almost even if you ask me. I was shifting high to sqeeze out the car's power. Now idea about him though. Didn't ask. He didn't come back with any comments, "I screwed up" or "I wasn't even trying."
I'm gonna have to say though... Come spring time, when the roads aren't covered with sand and aren't so cold... Then he and I are probably going to have a match to see who's faster... And I mean in terms of handling. AWD WRX vs a 600cc sport bike. IMHO... It's too close a call for me to make. I don't know what he can do... but I know what I can do and my tire grip limits before the car plows like a FWD clunker.
Anyway, just thought I'd bring up... I'm getting a little over arrogant!
Silly Subaru! Bikes are for AWD Porsche 911 Turbos!
