... And got smoked! :D

Man these bikes are fast!!!

It wasn't a stop and go type of deal, we went at it on section of freeway with speeds ranging between 130 and 190 km/h....

It's a section of freeway with short straightaways that would not allow to reach top speed with a lot of high speed curves.

I always had a small advantage out of the curves and opening full throtlle I always seemed to get away until he passed me every time and with considerable speed difference...

I could not catch him and he was getting away everytime, until the next curve where i could catch up and regain the advantage.

I'm just wondering if had any mods on his bike, coz he was really flying!

Anyways, it was a lot fun! :dance:

P.s: it was 1 am, and the freeway was really deserted, not even the popo in sight

Those bikes are ridiculously fast!! It'll take a lot of $$$ to be able to keep with one of those stock.

Ridiculous would really qualify the difference in performance... I knew they were fast, but man I could not imagine that much difference...

I know my V is not a race bike... But it always comes down to a little something called testoterone...

Anyways, it was all in good fun

I will have always like the V-Max. My V-Rod is now faster in the 1/4 mile than my V-Max was (with me as the rider :)) but I have a turbo.

The guy you raced probably still had bias tires, I changed the rims on my V-Max so I could go to radials, after that could lean a lot more...

He was definetely slower than me in the curves, rider or bike itself (both?)... And I wasn't even pushing that hard in the curves, it was late and cold and I'm quite simply not looking to kill myself anytime soon.

Like metallica said, I try keep myself grounded...

I have to admit that the V-Max is the bike I wanted forever... Ever since I was a teenager. Mas respect for that machine!

But that was until I fell in love with the Rod

I know what you mean, I'm torn between the 2 but picked the V-Rod after having the max. For me it was really uncomfortable and I didn't trust it as much for reliability.

I rode a Max for 8 years. Have had 3 V-Rods and will never go back. Sure you are giving away straight speed but lets face it. You are gaining much more. :cheers:
