I thought I knew what fast was till I got my SV. I love riding so much more then driving, my sv ruined cars for me forever. All well. I got rid of my 68 mustang for it that must tell ya something about me.

So how does the SV compare in 0 to 60 or 0 - 100 against bikes like the GSXR 1000 or R1? Are those bikes just faster from 60 to 100+?

Gsxr600 0-100. 6.88secs
r1 0 - 100 mph: 5.9 seconds

Well ive been to the track with my bike and let me tell you, its facking hard. On every car ive taken to the track, mine or otherwise, I was able to get the same or better then magazine quotes. Then I went with my bike WOW its supposed to do a 11.9 I think and the best I got was a 12.7. Because I didnt know much about it and didnt properly research techniques I was a complete rookie but with a little practice and maybe playing with tire pressure and suspension settings I could do better but man, its hard.

So ya go ahead and race any car you want but once the tree lights up its not as easy a it sounds.

Indeed these are professional times.

So amateurs get amatuer times. ;)

I kept up with a ferrari 430 to around 100mph. Then my lack of hp kicked in and he just pulled away. The look on that old mans face when he realized I was right beside him was priceless.

I smoked my friend in his souped up GTI a few times and suprised the crap outta him. He is really the only car I raced. But its the VR6 tuned and all kinds of stuff done to it. The only thing he has left to do is a turbo. I smoked him pretty bad though.
