Re: I got smoked by a WK2 SRT8

If you raced it at night you might have had a chance to blind them. Possibly.

Re: I got smoked by a WK2 SRT8

I was at the dealer this week getting an oil change and they had an SRT8 there. I looked at the price and saw $64,000+ on it!!!

A new model SRT8 tried to keep up with me the other day. On two wheels you almost feel as if you are cheating...but only almost

Of course, then it rains/snows/gets too hot/ gets too cold or you have to pick up groceries. Then it almost feels as if you are getting cheated...but only almost

jk. When you are talking about a bike with a power to weight ratio of something like 4 times more than the WK2, as you say it's not really a fair competition!

Really, you have to wonder what the driver of the SRT8 was thinking trying to keep up with you!

Re: I got smoked by a WK2 SRT8

You would be surprised at how many people try to race motorcycles in their cages despite the obvious outcome. Riding a bike all year round is not nearly as problematic as you might think. New technology, better bikes and better equipment can make the weather somewhat irrelevant. A bike may not be as practical as a car or truck, but it can still get the job done surprisingly well. Even when the wife sends you grocery shopping

Re: I got smoked by a WK2 SRT8

Everytime I go into the dealership they try to get my into a wk2. I keep telling them if they can beat me in one then I'll buy it. Problem for them is the longer they wait the faster I get
