That's insane

UncleDave,

I don't facebook sooo…. But a Ruf Porsche is about as bad of a "Tuner" Porsche you can get your cheeks into! Fast cars are fast, or are really able to show how powerful they really are from 60 to 100mph, and up to what ever their top speed is. That said, till you have pinned the throttle on a tuned/tweaked modern EFI liter bike, you have not felt what fast is for a motorcycle.

Newer tweaked liter bikes will wheelie in 3rd at 100mph with no clutch, just blip the throttle and pick up the front, then stand up if you got the nerve!


This is why I no longer own a Porsche, or a motorcycle!

Not sure of the point, one is a motorcycle and one is a car. Why the comparison?
Sounds like just a poor soul who can afford a Honda motorcycle is jealous that he cant afford a car like a Corvette.

It's like these guys who want to compare Boss Hoss V-8 bikes to all the rice rockets.

That reminds me of a guy who owned/ owns a "rice rocket", and was challenged to a race by an overconfident, blowhard Boss Hoss owner. As many times as the Boss Hoss owner wanted to run, he got his behind handed to him by the "rice rocket".

Boss Hoss bikes are not race bikes, and were never designed or built as such.

The owner of the company, Monte, thought different. They challenged this fellow with a ZX-12R, then the second fastest production bike, to a race. The ZX-12R rider was no lightweight, pushing 300 lbs. Anyway, using whichever Boss Hoss model they had, from a standing start or a roll-on, the results were the same. The Boss Hoss lost. The Boss Hoss owner lied and got an article printed in Barnett's stating that the Boss Hoss had won. When Barnett's was shown the video of the runs with the Boss Hoss losing every time, Barnett's printed a retraction with the correct results.

And as I said, the founder of the company wanted people to think otherwise. Much to his chagrin.

I'm not understanding your point. Chevy say's they are more reliable than Toyota and Honda. No one believes it, but they say it anyway. People who manufacture and sell things make all kinds of unsubstantiated claims. No one buys a Boss Hoss to win races because they have big engines and are fast. They could buy 3 crotch rockets for the same price if they wanted that. It's a silly comparison regardless of who made it or why.

You're the one that brought up Boss Hoss in this thread.

I just commented on the ultimate poser bikes.
