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....
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?!
