Question Motorcycles vs. Cars

Hello Everyone
I have this one friend who's a big supporter for cars , while I am all in favour on bikes.He thinks that cars are better than motorcycles.So, could someone here please help me and send in some data (such as 0-60 mph, 0-100 mph, 1/4 mile run, top-speed etc) for faster cars around (such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren etc) as well as for bikes (such as Yamaha R1, Honda 959, Duc 998R, Suzuki GSX 1000 , Hayabusa etc)
Thanks

Between street cars and street bikes, it's not even a fair fight. Let's do just one example: a $185,000 Porsche GT2 Turbo vs. GSX-R1000:

cage: 456hp, 3500lb (with driver), 1/4-mile [email protected]

gixxer: 144hp, 600lb (with rider), 1/4-mile [email protected]

Case closed.

And the numbers don't vary much from what Dan posted.

A couple of months ago Motorcyclist Magazine did a Car vs Bike smackdown. Kevin Schwantz(sp?) rode a GSXR-1000 and drove a Corvette around Willow Springs racetrack. The bike kicked the cars butt

It is like compairing horses & cages.

They are that far apart. I have a '91 2600cc Mazda 4X4 & insure it all year around. It gets me to the gun range & back with all my shooting equipment, targets, holster rigs, ammo, etc., both Summer & Winter. It provides me with a dry ride when it is pouring rain & safer ride when winter hits, etc.
My m/cs (only insured from March till November) are for my pleasure to be ridden when I so feel. Prior to '90 I also had a variation of dirt comp bikes ------ so it is that different that one does not compare them for it would be like comparing a cage to a horse that one likes to take care of & ride.

Smitty -- you need to move to Southern California where you can keep your bike insured 12 months a year and where you don't have to haul your guns around but just aim them out the windows at drive-bys.

There is your case closed

i saw that thing from motorcyclist mag on the Speed channel and, if i remember right, the corvette beat the bike in one of the competitions, like taking one specific curve or something like that. if not, it came close because i remember being really surprised. maybe it was a lap time...dont remember, anyone else?
i know the bike spanked the vette in everything else though. the bike went from 0-100-0 before the cage even hit 100, thought that was impressive. later

True but with the bike the woman has to wrap her legs around you and press her boobs into your back.

At least you always get to cop a feel.
