    I got Smoked

    This is not a WRX Vs Twin Turbo Cobra, but I thought some of you might still be interested on what happened to me last night. I was headed west on I 66 riding my new Ducati 998R when a 2001 silver Cobra pulls up next to me on my left. I glanced over and noticed the passenger had a Video camera pointed at me. The passenger of the Cobra pointed forward like he wanted to run. I said to myself what a silly fool, doesn’t he see that I am on a bike. Well I decided to down shift and lay the hammer down. Well 140 mph comes up really fast and the Cobra is one car back. I let of at 155 MPH and he was still back their. WOW what an adrenalin rush. Then the Cobra pulls next to me again and the kid start to count down using his fingers. 3,2,1 and we are off from a 70 MPH roll. I have to admit I jumped the Cobra by half a car and then he flew by me and proceeded to put 5 cars on me to 160mph. We both took the next exit and stop at the gas station to talk. The guy was in a hurry to get back home so I got a brief description of his modifications. Twin Turbo with a IC system and aftermarket heads cams, and much more.

    And yes, the Busa would bring the pain. Making a Busa run 9's is easy money. Not to mention the turbo kit brings up to 250HP to a 480lb bike

    I'm pretty sure, I would have no problem The only (Fast) car that I had a chance to race in my Busa was a Viper... and that was a joke!

    I am not starting any flames, but this was no joke of a stang. I bet that he ran high 9s on the 1/4. By the way, you make it sound like my bike is slow. The Busa might take that Cobra, but the R1 would of had meet with the same outcome as my Ducati.
    Man I dynoed 138 whp thats in par with the R1 or a little better.

    That Stang had to be pretty bad ass to smoke that Duke like that. Any car that trolls for sportbikes with a video camera must be serious business, or just stupid.

    A 250 hp Busa is just sick.

    I never ran a 998R, but I did run a 996 with my boy's 01 GSXR-750 and I was able to pull on him pretty well... but again I not that familiar with the 998R! Does the 998R have the old Desmo or the new Testastretta motor?

    Actually my Busa is only pushing 214hp (not 250hp) to the wheel, I left my motor alone!

    Cool... I have not gotten the chance to run a new 998r at the track, but then if I had a 998r I would not be at the track! I would be picking up chicks in Downtown Orlando All I can pickup with my Busa are fat chicks, the skinny ones think my bike is ugly

    For the 70 MPH roll on, what gear did you drop it in to? If you tried from 3rd or higher he would get the jump you (seeing as it's a shiny new duc, I would understand). I would have dropped it into 2nd and I am sure he would not have pulled on me. Pretty sure atleast. I have a CBR954 with a M4 bolt on.
