last night i was on a 4-lane-per-side road (el camino real) and this rich ass kid pulls up in a 2004 MBZ E55 amg, supercharged V8... he had at least an aftermarket exhaust on it from what i heard. but anyway, i had a passenger on my bike as well. the kid looked at me and floored it from a 30 MPH roll, and we just both were WOT. i only had him by about 1 car length, maybe a little less the whole time. i was riding about 6500-8500 RPM the whole time, enough to keep the turbo spinning through it all. 30-85 and i won, but not by much. although the passenger on the bike makes it WAY slower.

btw, my bike is a 1983 yamaha SECA 650 turbo. fast bike for being an old 650, 0-60 is about 3.7 seconds. fast benz though....

E55's are monsters, they will school almost any car like Torque said...

I see alot of them around were I live and I just laugh every time I see another car try to take it unless its a even more expensive sports car...

yeah i want to race him again with just me on the bike. off the line he would take me because my bike has nothing down low, gotta wait until the turbo spools up until it really takes off.

thats wierd we live in the same town, ha!

Is that 650 the single cylinder or two? My dad used to have a yamaha 500 dirt bike that was bored to like 520. That thing wrote the book on torque in a bike.

i was next to calle barcelona, dropping my friend off on levante. he lives in the monarch villa apartments. i might know who youre talking about wih the riced out benz. is it green with a stupidly loud exhaust on it? and a 4 door? also, i live right off of cerro street by villiage park way.

and the 650 is actually a 4 cylinder, with 4 pressurized carbureturs. an inline 4.

yeah the street by home depot is olivenhaine, my friend lives off of that street on amargosa. but i was taking another friend home and calle barcelona is the next right after olivenhaine. then levante, so its olivenhaine, calle barcelona, levante. on the right side of el camino real. i was in between calle barcelona and levante while racing him. yesterday i saw a white 330ci turning onto leucadia blvd., and i thought hmmm.... maybe its him? haha. but i think i know who youre talking about with the benz. i hate neon lights on cars.... so so much. and on a benz?!
