my 750 vs harley 2002 1200 skirtster custon

it has finally happened me and my brother finally got to see whos bike is quicker. i bought my 750 last october and it was a mess and he would say well its ok but its not like my harley and he'd blow me away . "hes got aftermarket pipes and so forth" i said well we'll see mines only a 750 right.. so just yesterday we were out for a cruz and we got on rt 2 going towards perry at about 60 when i guy in a car blew by us like we were standing still. then my bro on his harley jumped on it just to show his superiority went out to a bike and half lead before i knew it .. on instinct i kicked it into 4th gave her full throttle hit 5 reeled that harley in and left it back about 3-4 bike lengths to 100 mph. it was a rush . when we stopped he said well my bike isnt made for speed like yours as i just laughed and said its only a 750 remember.... lol gotta love these bikes

Got stuck behind an idiot in a big pickup today, he ignored turnout after turnout. The road was about to get twisty(er), saw a sightline, full throttle in 3rd and I was GONE.

Scraped the pegs in the next few turns hehe... slowed down a little after that.

And that my friend, is exactly why I was wishing I was on the bike yesterday. Of course - it was a big pickup with a travel trailer that couldn't figure out staying in his lane (what the HELL he was doing on THAT road is anyone's guess). Nothing like being stuck in the cage on a favorite riding road and knowing you could easily be past the jackass in front of you (and people like said jackass are the reason I ride that road at 40, not 60 - need to ride on the inside of MY lane since often I get to share
