If a party has a Harley say with a 110cu in engine. You know like a fast screamin' eagle or something. Can this outrun a crotch rocket? Now the reason I ask, I talked to a Gent at the Harley shop last week. His RK has a hopped up engine. Since trying to make it faster, he is getting major repairs done to it for the 3rd time.:newsmile093: According to this gent he said, "I know what my problem is, I like to race stop light to stop light." :wall:wall:wall (Now this guy is old enough to be a Grandpa)...So I ask him, "Can you out race a crotch rocket? His answer was...If I race a pack of 8, I can beat 6 of them and the 2 that I beat give me a look of old man we respect you." It was all I could do to keep from doing this :lolrolling on the Dealers showroom floor. He also bragged about shifting gears without using a clutch...(why have a clutch if you are not going to use it..hhhmmm). Then I was wondering....I wonder how many of those crotch rockets had to get major work done to their engines from racing this ole dude on his whiz bang by golly hopped up Harley? However with all that being said, I just wonder if he is embellishing things just a bit? :small3d031: I don't know that much about crotch rockets, but I would think most HD's, would be dogmeat up against a crotch rocket. It is all a mechanical and technical thingy. So I pose a question. Are there folk on the forum who have blown the foot pegs off of crotch rockets with their Harley? Please respond.
